Former NFL quarterback gets a second (third?) chance at the big time with the announcement that he has signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The sports world is pretty much shaking it’s head over this one. Tebow’s career completion rate is 47.9%.
And yet, out footballer Michael Sam is told over and over again HE’S not playing in the NFL because he’s simply not good enough?
In the 2014 NFL preseason Sam was top-five in the NFL in sacks and was second on the St. Louis Rams team in tackles.
I’m not the only one scratching my head.
So Tim Tebow will get another shot at the NFL but Michael Sam can barely get a whiff because he will be too much of a distraction….WTF NFL

Love the pundits who said signing Michael Sam would be a distraction, but signing Tim Tebow is a great football move.

I think, in the 25+years I’ve been writing on the NFL, never seen more excuses made for a player than Tim Tebow.
