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.

RON JAWORSKI treats opportunity like a Doberman treats prime rib. So when Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets on April 29, Jaworski took a shot by reaching out to the unemployed quarterback and offered him a roster spot with the Soul. He's still waiting for a reply. "I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," said Jaworski, one of the Soul's owners. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him. " Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had in mind for him, most were around the goal line.

TIM TEBOW is in Eagles camp this spring because he believes he is a changed quarterback, and because Chip Kelly says that he believes that too. "I think mechanically he's improved, but I think he did a lot on his own," the Eagles coach said earlier this week. Tebow has worked hard on his flawed mechanics, but he hardly did it alone. One day he was running through drills alongside Drew Brees or Tom Brady, another he was working alongside Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels. Always he was under the tutelage of former pitcher Tom House, whose well-known biomechanics improvement program has been embraced not only by elite Major League pitchers, but more recently by a slew of elite NFL quarterbacks like Brees, Brady, Joe Flacco and Alex Smith.

Could it be Tebow Time in the Arena Football League? Soul part-owner Ron Jaworski said Wednesday he was serious about his offer to former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to join the AFL team. Jaworski reached out to Tebow a day after the Jets released him in April. Jaworski has yet to hear from Tebow but expects to eventually. "I love the guy," Jaworski said. "I want him here just for his leadership. " Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynamic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez, and a merchandising touchdown for the Jets.

TIM TEBOW said he'll pass, which was probably a good idea under the circumstances. The Jets quarterback turned down an opportunity to speak at the First Baptist Church in Dallas because its pastor has made outrageous statements about gays and other religions. On Thursday, Tebow tweeted that he canceled an April 28 appearance because of "new information that has been brought to my attention. " The Rev. Robert Jeffress, the church's pastor, has said that Islam promotes pedophilia, and has railed against gays, Jews and Catholics.

The Tim Tebow phenomenon has caused me to scratch my head so often, I've actually carved out a tiny road in my hairline. I used to have a free-flowing mane. In my many years of covering sports, I have never seen such a marginally talented athlete so overhyped. With Tebow routinely falling to his feet on a playing field, the sporting public has fallen to its feet. The ESPN poll this week revealed the Broncos' QB to be America's favorite active pro athlete. Only 11 athletes total, in the 18 years of this poll, have reached No. 1 status and most of them were in the stratosphere of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Tiger Woods.

The Broncos are 6-1 since Tim Tebow took over for Kyle Orton at quarterback. Four of those victories have come by either four or three points.   For the record San Francisco's Frank Gore passed Hall of Famer Joe Perry (7,344) for the most yards rushing in franchise history. Gore now has 7,395 yards. The 49ers are wearing No. 34 helmet decals this season in honor of Perry, the first player with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He died in April at age 84. Ben Roethlisberger set a Steelers record for completed passes with 2,026 in his career, one more than the old club record of Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw .   Weird stat Rookie Jeremy Kerley muffed a punt deep in his own territory for the Jets' NFL-high sixth special-teams turnover this season.

By Jonathan Gurwitz Charles Barkley may have said it best: "I am not a role model. " Anyone who looks to famous athletes for moral guidance is almost certain to end up disappointed. There have been notable exceptions - athletes whose success in sports was matched by personal and professional integrity and decency. But behind every amazing dunk, every game-winning touchdown, and every spectacular home run is a fallible human being just like the rest of us, prone to make mistakes, break laws, and sin. Few athletic stories are more inspiring than that of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who fulfilled an improbable dream of playing football at Notre Dame with faith and perseverance.

THE PHOTO hit Twitter yesterday at 4:02 p.m. An Eagles helmet positioned on a desk in front of him, clutching a pen in the left hand that last threw an NFL pass during the 2013 preseason, Tim Tebow was smiling behind a stylish stubble, wearing a midnight green sweatshirt with the team logo on the breast. Tebow's signing of a 1-year contract finally became official, about 21 hours after Fox's Jay Glazer broke the initial report. By the time it was announced, the quarterback's arrival had been celebrated, denounced, scrutinized and dissected by every media outlet this side of People magazine.

NEW YORK - Tebow Time is off the clock.   Tim Tebow was waived by the Jets on Monday, the end of an unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York that had been expected for months.   "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped," coach Rex Ryan said in a statement by the team in announcing the move.   The Eagles are not interested in Tebow.   The Heisman Trophy winner attempted just eight passes after his ballyhooed arrival in a surprising trade from the Denver Broncos in March 2012.

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.

STEVE WEATHERFORD is the punter for the New York Football Giants. He's worked in radio and TV and does a lot of philanthropic work, focusing on children, health and fitness, and family. Seems like a nice man. He now also knows how to backpedal. On Friday, on WFAN's "Boomer and Carton Show," he took shots at Eagles quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford and coach Chip Kelly. "I'm the biggest Tim Tebow fan in the world," he said. "I mean, who wouldn't want their daughter to date a guy like that?

The quarterback who receives the least amount of attention on the Eagles is the one who has been with the organization the longest. He's the lone quarterback Chip Kelly has ever drafted. And he's the only one who has not been traded or released by a team - or at least not yet. Matt Barkley is entering his third season in Philadelphia. He arrived in 2013 expecting to compete with Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the No. 1 job. He now must hold off Tim Tebow from taking the No. 3 job. "He's not taking my reps on the field," Barkley said.

The prospective third-string quarterback of the Eagles stopped in the center of a NovaCare Complex practice field Thursday to shake owner Jeffrey Lurie's hand and chat a while, and then Tim Tebow turned to his right to face a familiar sight in a familiar setting. There, 105 reporters and writers clustered together in a tight, sweat-stinking group under an oppressive midafternoon sun. It was 90 degrees, the air like moist gauze, and from the weather to the horde of media awaiting Tebow, this could have been Gainesville, Fla., in 2008 or Cortland, N.Y., in 2012.

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.

A DUCK never is just a duck with Chip Kelly. There always is a deeper meaning or grander plan to everything The Most Interesting Coach in the World does. Or so we have been conditioned to believe. He is a chess master who always is thinking three or four or five or 100 moves ahead. And when he saw fit to sign Tim Tebow last month, well, our imaginations ran wild with the ways Kelly probably was planning to use him, none of which had anything to do with him throwing the football. He's going to be a short-yardage specialist and be used on two-point attempts.

The Eagles will hold three days of organized team activities this week, which is the NFL's euphemism for voluntary practice sessions that are usually anything but. And while there are collectively bargained restrictions on the nature of the drills and workouts, there is no limit on local speculation regarding what Chip Kelly will learn about his team during these sessions. It might be he already knows plenty. One thing I believe he knows is that quarterback Tim Tebow is probably going to be on the roster when the Eagles open the regular season on Sept.

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.

IT SEEMS there is a method to Chip Kelly's madness. Eagles fans gave Kelly holy hell when he signed Tim Tebow last month. Why add another subpar quarterback when you've already got Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. Because of the "Tebow Rule," that's why. Actually, no such rule exists. Yet. But that's what it will likely be known as if a proposal by the Eagles concerning the two-point conversion is accepted. Next week, the NFL owners will meet and mull over three proposals for changing the way extra points and conversions are handled.
