Report: Tim Tebow "will earn" Eagles roster spot if he avoids errors

3

This is according to an ESPN anchor whom I had literally never heard of prior to this report, but: Apparently Chip Kelly likes Tebow's ability to run the football and sees him as a potential asset when it comes to two-point conversions and short-yardage downs — so, basically, Tebow could be the ideal specialist many thought he could be for the Eagles. The more important detail here comes from Bleeding Green Nation, which notes that the Eagles have tried to trade Matt Barkley, and clearly seem to favor Tebow as a third quarterback.
