Tim Tebow works out for the Philadelphia Eagles

Tebow gets yet another shot at making an NFL roster, while the Eagles make yet another head-scratching move

Tim Tebow still hasn't given up on his NFL dream.

And the Philadelphia Eagles might not done making over their roster.

The wildly popular -- and wildly inconsistent -- quarterback, who hasn't played in the league since 2012, worked out for the Eagles at quarterback on Monday morning but left without signing a contract, according to multiple media reports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.

Tebowmania was all the rage back in 2011, when the former Heisman Trophy winner out of Florida led the Denver Broncos to an improbable playoff victory. But when the Broncos decided to go with Peyton Manning at quarterback, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets, with whom he spent a nondescript season.

After he failed to make the New England Patriots' roster at their 2013 training camp, Tebow settled into his job as an analyst on the SEC Network with his NFL career at an end.

Or so it seemed.

Then came Monday's news. The Eagles have been quite active this offseason, to say the least, and a lot of that action has come at the quarterback position. First, they re-signed Mark Sanchez, who started half the season after Nick Foles went down with a broken collarbone. Then they traded Foles to the St. Louis Rams for quarterback Sam Bradford, whose last two seasons ended with ACL injuries.

Where Tebow fits in all this is anyone's guess. For what it's worth, Tebow was Sanchez's backup in New York, but I'm pretty sure neither of them wants to relive that year.
