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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Though my father rarely dispensed advice, he constantly warned me and my siblings about the perils of discussing politics and religion, no doubt because one side of the family was Protestant and Republican, the other Catholic and Democrat. That seems so quaint now. In an increasingly polarized society, loud, mean-spirited debate on either topic is not only socially acceptable, it's demanded. Pointed punditry has become a national pastime. Such an atmosphere requires that we wear our affiliations on our sleeves like uniform numbers.

They did not chant his name, or give him a standing ovation, or stay out in the heat for an extra two hours just to say they saw him rumble into the end zone against a defense loaded with hangers-on and roster fodder. They did all those things for the man who followed him. Matt Barkley jogged onto Lincoln Financial Field in relative silence, his entrance into the Eagles' 36-10 preseason victory over the Colts just the opening act for Tim Tebow's return to the NFL, as if Barkley were an acoustic singer-songwriter warming up the crowd for the E Street Band.

The calls from the 303 area code began to pop up not long after the Eagles signed Tim Tebow this spring. Radio stations wanted to know how Philadelphia was handling Tebowmania. Colleagues from other newspapers and websites wanted to grasp the enormity of the media blitz that was certainly engulfing the Eagles beat. Kinda quiet, actually, they were told, and this really disappointed them. Denver in 2010 and 2011 was ground zero for one of the most divisive quarterback controversies in recent memory.

MARK SANCHEZ will get the start tomorrow in the preseason opener against the Colts, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly cautioned that Sanchez probably will take only a handful of snaps. The bulk of the quarterbacking will be done by Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow, who would seem to be fighting for a single roster spot as the Eagles' third QB. "I want to see what happens with those guys," Kelly said. Barkley has taken exactly one live snap since the preseason finale last year against the Jets (at the end of the blowout win over Carolina last Nov. 10)

Linebacker DeMeco Ryans did not practice Wednesday, the first training camp workout he has missed while recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. "Just taking a little rest," Ryans said. He did sound not concerned, and a maintenance day is not unusual at this point in training camp for a 31-year-old who is coming off a major injury. The Eagles were thin at inside linebacker Wednesday, even though they are deeper at the position this year. The top three players on the depth chart were all out or limited.

A little less than a month remains until the Eagles whittle their quartet of quarterbacks to just three. For Matt Barkley, every practice matters. Back in the spring, Barkley spent practices getting regular reps in the second-string spot behind Mark Sanchez as starter Sam Bradford recovered from knee surgery. But with Bradford healthy again and with the arrival of Tim Tebow in April, Barkley does not even have the third-string spot locked up anymore. Whether or not Barkley's name will be on the roster come Sept.

HE RAN A LITTLE, threw a lot, shifted in the pocket from time to time. There was even a point yesterday when Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow looked a little like baseball pitchers sliding into second or third, or even oversized (and poorly trained) gymnasts, tumbling to the ground and bouncing up again. "That was new to me," Bradford said later as he met with the media for the first time since Sunday, when training camp began. "Something we're working on. I don't think it looked very pretty.

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.

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.
