This is not a column about Tim Tebow and the Eagles, really. This is not about whether he'll beat out Matt Barkley for the No. 3 quarterback spot or whether Chip Kelly will use him in short-yardage or special-teams situations or whether his throwing motion is quicker and tighter and no longer resembles Sandy Koufax working out of the stretch. This is not a column about the minutia of football we tend to focus on when we focus on the Eagles. Feel free to stop reading. No one will be offended.

The Eagles' unpredictable offseason continued Monday when the team worked out Tim Tebow, the polarizing quarterback who has not played in the NFL for the last two seasons. Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not comment on the workout. No deal with Tebow was announced, and ESPN reported that the Eagles would not sign him at this time. But the mere mention of his workout became breaking news in the NFL, which speaks to Tebow's popularity. Tebow, 27, was a 2010 first-round pick who last played for the New England Patriots in the 2013 preseason.

Simon Fletcher, the Denver Broncos' all-time sack leader, has decided to come out of retirement for a chance to play for the Eagles. Fletcher, 34, retired at the end of last season, after a disappointing and unhappy 11th year of playing that led many, including Broncos management, to think he was finished. He posted five sacks, his lowest output since 1987, his first year as a starter. Though no negotiations have been completed, the Eagles are believed to want Fletcher as a third-down specialist behind defensive end Mike Mamula in the role held last season by Dan Stubbs, who left for Miami.

Click here for kickers. Chicago Bears: The leadership void left by Brian Urlacher's retirement is being filled by Lance Briggs. As long as cornerback Charles Tillman is forcing turnovers like Jrue Holiday, Da Bears' defense will be a fine option. Cincinnati Bengals: Were third in the league with 51 sacks and have scored seven defensive touchdowns over the last 2 years. Geno Atkins and Michael Johnson combined for 24 of those sacks. Denver Broncos: Three years ago, the Broncos had 23 sacks and 10 interceptions.

Say it isn't so, Roger. Commissioner Roger Goodell said this week that the league's competition committee will consider eliminating the kickoff in the offseason. The league previously moved the kickoff from the 30 to the 35-yard line to cut down on violent collisions, hoping to reduce head injuries. But eliminating kickoffs? Pretty soon the game of football will involve no "foot" whatsoever. Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs doesn't like the possibility that the NFL will do away with kickoffs.

The New York Giants are only four years removed from their last Super Bowl victory, and they have nothing on the Atlanta Falcons in terms of postseason experience. The Giants (9-7) will be the novices Sunday when they host the Falcons (10-6) in an NFC wild-card game at MetLife Stadium. New York is returning to the postseason after a two-year absence that put coach Tom Coughlin's job in jeopardy, while the Falcons will be appearing in the playoffs for the second straight year and third time in four seasons.

SAN DIEGO - Peyton Manning needed only one half to show why he still is one of the best quarterbacks in the game. This time, it was the second half, as the Denver Broncos became the first team in NFL history to trail by 24 or more points at halftime and win by double figures, downing the San Diego Chargers, 35-24. Manning, who threw a critical interception in the second quarter, finished 24-for-30 for 309 yards and three touchdowns. He was 6-for-6 on the Broncos' first possession after halftime, and hit Demaryius Thomas for Denver's first TD of the game at 10:56, throwing for 83 yards on the drive that made it 24-7.

The roster move the Eagles are expected to make Monday shot straight to the top of the publicity charts. A lot of people might have been Tebowing that it was not true, but it is. The Eagles are adding a Heisman Trophy winner to their crowded quarterback depth chart. Oregon's Marcus Mariota remains a long shot to be in Eagles green after the NFL draft. Tim Tebow, on the other hand, will be on the practice fields at the NovaCare Complex after he signs a one-year deal with the team Monday.

It was just like old times for Tim Tebow during organized team activities with the Eagles on Thursday at the NovaCare Complex: It was not very good. Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winner and a two-time college football champion at Florida, showed explosiveness as a runner. But even though Eagles coach Chip Kelly raved about his improvement as a passer before the workout, that was not immediately evident. Thursday was the Eagles' third workout and the first witnessed by the media. At first glance, the new and improved Tebow, who has spent more than a year working on his throwing motion with former major-league pitcher Tom House, looked a lot like the quarterback who completed just 47.9 percent of his NFL passes.

The team that could not score from the 1-yard line two times with the 49ers game on the line in September wants all two-point conversions to be from that distance. And it just so happens that the Eagles could have a roster this year that is better equipped to make those plays. NFL owners will consider three proposals to change the extra point this week at the league meetings in San Francisco. One is from the Eagles, who are proposing to move extra points from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, two-point conversions from the 2-yard line to the 1, and for defenses to be allowed to return a turnover for two points on the play.

Maybe the path to understanding why the Eagles signed Tim Tebow and how Chip Kelly plans to use him begins with a phone call between a pair of New York Jets coaches in March 2012. It has been three years and a month since the Jets completed a trade that sent two draft picks to the Denver Broncos for Tebow, and just before the franchises consummated the deal, Rex Ryan dialed up his special-teams coach, Mike Westhoff, to solicit his opinion on adding Tebow in a jack-of-all-trades kind of role.

ORDINARILY, THE signing of a quarterback who hasn't played in 2 years and who completed less than half of his passes when he did would merit about as much attention as Jason Kelce getting jock itch. But when the quarterback happens to be Tim Tebow, well, as you can see from our front and back pages today, it gets the-Pope-is-coming treatment. Tebow hasn't proven to be a very good NFL quarterback, but he still has managed to achieve Kardashian-like celebrity status, which is why Twitter nearly blew up last night when the news broke that the Eagles had agreed to a deal with the former Heisman Trophy winner.

CHIP KELLY nearly broke the Internet for a wild hour or so yesterday afternoon. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles had worked out Tim Tebow. A team source confirmed the workout, and confirmed that Tebow worked out as a quarterback, though some observers have thought the 6-2, 236-pound 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning QB from Florida might be better suited to play fullback, tight end or safety. Alas, after sounding the nationwide Tebow alarm, Schefter then unrang the bell, reporting that Tebow had left Philly yesterday and that the Birds had decided not to sign him at this time.

The Eagles' 53-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was not any better the second time around for coach Chip Kelly, who dissected the footage and came away with the same impression he had minutes after the blowout. The defense could not stop Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The offense's ineffectiveness on third downs and in the red zone during the first half was compounded by second-half turnovers in a forgettable afternoon. The special teams allowed their first touchdown return of the season.

The inclination is always to compare and debate whenever Tom Brady and Peyton Manning go against one another, which the future Hall of Fame quarterbacks will do for the 16th time in their careers Sunday when the New England Patriots play host to the Denver Broncos. They are not just two of the best quarterbacks of their era, they are two of the best ever, and they remain elite even as they approach the age of 40. You can look for cracks, but it would be a huge mistake to ever think you have found one. They may have a bad game every now and again, as Brady did in Week 4 vs. Kansas City, but neither has ever had a bad season, unless you count the ones they sat out injured.
