    The Philadelphia Eagles are parting ways with quarterback Tim Tebow after signing the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback in April, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Tebow signed with the Eagles after two seasons away from football, but he didn't make the final roster after a competition with the other quarterbacks on the team. Instead those spots went to Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, who each secured a spot on the team's 53-man roster, while Matt Barkley was traded to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday.

    The move to trade Barkley seemingly secured Tebow's place as the third-string quarterback with the team, but according to Howard Eskin of 94WIP Radio in Philadelphia, Chip Kelly is looking elsewhere for help at quarterback.

    A first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Tebow started 14 games in two seasons with the Denver Broncos in addition to two postseason starts. He posted an 8-6 record as a starter in Denver with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions, despite completing just 47.3 percent of his passes with the team.

    The 27-year-old hasn't started a game at quarterback since, though, after he was traded to the New York Jets in 2012 and signed by the New England Patriots in 2013.

    Interestingly, it seemed like Tebow outplayed Barkley throughout the preseason to earn a roster spot. In the team's final preseason game, Tebow and Barkley split the reps and it was Tebow who did more with his reps. Barkley competed 4 of 9 passes for 45 yards with an interception, while Tebow completed 11 of 17 passes for 189 yards with two touchdowns, an interception and another 32 yards rushing.

    When Tebow signed with the Eagles, it was met with the fanfare associated with everything the quarterback does. His jersey immediately became one of the NFL's best sellers and Tebow-themed pretzels were even sold in Philadelphia.

    Injuries and attrition through the season always mean a team could come calling and give Tebow another chance, but for now it appears as though his NFL dream will be shelved once again. Instead he will likely head back to his work as an analyst for ESPN, where he made a good impression in 2014.

    Four years of NFL paychecks for a qb that can't throw.

    Didn't realize he tried to play football again.

    I thought he was working for Disney.

    He should just count his losses, take his money and open the car dealership or furniture store now. Save some face.

    It says something that the guy isn't even good enough to be a second/third string QB. He's just not good at throwing a football..... which apparently a quarterback needs to be good at doing.

    He's been steadfastly against playing any position but QB. It's his own fault - he's limiting his opportunities.
