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.

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.

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.

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 PAST WEEK, people have stopped me as usual, but not to talk about the mayor's race or the Affordable Care Act, but to ask me, "Is Chip Kelly crazy?" These fans are referring to the news that the Eagles signed Tim Tebow to compete for the third-string quarterback slot. For more than 2 years, the so-called experts have concluded that Tebow cannot be a winning NFL quarterback, saying he can't make coverage reads and isn't an accurate enough passer. I always found this conclusion to be somewhat curious, considering that in four seasons at college, playing in big-time games for Florida, he completed 66.4 percent of his passes, threw 88 touchdowns and had only 16 interceptions.

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.

YOU MUST HAVE known I'd write about Tim Tebow this week. I mean, I've talked about him when he was thousands of miles away throwing ziggety-zaggety passes in Denver, so did you honestly believe I'd ignore this apparition in the grotto occurring in my own backyard? Seriously, if you'd told me that a miraculous spring wouldhave spurted up at Broad andPattison, I couldn't have been more surprised. And while it's too soon to predict what wonders might occur this season, I can promise that a bunch of us limping, bleeding-green fans will hobble up to the stadium and lay down our psychological crutches by the turnstile in the hopes of some healing.

THREE DAYS after signing Tim Tebow, the Eagles yesterday finally got around to commenting on the decision to bring him in. "We were intrigued by what we saw at the workout [in March]," vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz said. "We saw a player that had improved since the last time we saw him live when he was here [last summer] with New England. "We had some conversations and discussions and felt it was an opportunity to bring him in and compete for a [roster] spot.

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.

There's a reason that a quarterback who wins the Heisman Trophy and is part of two national championship teams drifts to the end of the first round in the NFL draft. It would have nothing to do with his upbringing or his religion or his vow to remain chaste until marriage. As long as a quarterback is able to penetrate the end zone on a regular basis, NFL general managers and coaches don't care what he chooses to do with his free time. Tim Tebow was still around for the Denver Broncos to take him with the 25th pick of the 2010 draft because NFL teams are preternaturally hesitant to try anything different - and Tebow certainly qualified there.
