Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles at their facility on Monday, a NFL source confirms to Action News.

However, ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the Eagles have no plans in signing him at this time.

"Tim Tebow has come and gone from Philadelphia. Team is not planning to sign him at this time. We'll see if anything changes," Schefter tweeted.



Tebow has been working as an analyst for the SEC Network, and last played for the New York Jets in 2012. He was also in training camp with the New England Patriots before he was released in August 2013.

Prior to that Tebow played two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

"I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback," Tebow wrote on Twitter after he was released by New England in 2013.

Tebow, who entered the NFL after a memorable college career that included two national championships at Florida, completed 47.9 percent (173 of 361) of his passes for 2,422 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions while rushing for 989 yards and 12 scores in his pro career.

Tebow's multiyear deal with the SEC Network doesn't preclude him from continuing to pursue opportunities in the NFL.
