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.

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.

WHAT WOULD YOU say about a guy on a plane who comes to the aid of a family whose member is experiencing a heart attack and comforts them, stays with them when they get off the plane, gets their luggage and goes with them to the hospital? The guy who did all this is Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow. Many on Twitter and social media went wild when photos of Tebow leaked out of him praying with the stricken family aboard the plane. How dare Tebow pray with the family.

In the end, there weren't many surprises after the Eagles announced their league-mandated 53-man roster on Saturday. Well, maybe that there were only 52 players. A day after he dealt Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals, Chip Kelly waived Tim Tebow and kept open the possibility of adding a third quarterback off the street. The Eagles coach was blunt in his assessment of Tebow - "We didn't feel like he was good enough" - and all you could do was nod in agreement. There were a few other minor decisions that may not have been forecast.

The Eagles' third-quarterback competition did not have a winner. Tim Tebow was among 22 players the Eagles waived on Saturday to reduce the roster to 52 players. Coach Chip Kelly left one spot open, which could go to a quarterback on the waiver wire. Tebow outperformed Matt Barkley in the preseason finale and appeared in line to earn a roster spot after the team traded Barkley to Arizona on Friday night. But Tebow's body of work did not impress Kelly enough to keep him in Philadelphia.

The Eagles traded quarterback Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday for a conditional seventh-round pick in a deal that clears the way for Tim Tebow to make the 53-man roster. The trade headlined the eve of cut-down day, when NFL rosters must be reduced from 75 to 53 players. The Eagles informed multiple players that they will be waived, according to sources and reports, and still have a few more moves to make by 4 p.m. on Saturday. The highest-profile move was trading Barkley.

A FEW MONTHS from now, this might amount to little more than a footnote; we might forget why we cared. But context is everything, and on Labor Day weekend's Friday afternoon, when NFL teams were paring their rosters, what the Eagles did counted as monumental, breathtaking news. The Eagles' final preseason game Thursday night against the Jets was what we thought it was - confirmation that Tim Tebow will back up Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, and that Matt Barkley's time with the Eagles was at an end. The Arizona Cardinals agreed to send a seventh-round draft choice to the Eagles for Barkley, the Eagles said, confirming a Fox Sports report.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Matt Barkley packed his belongings for the bus ride back to Philadelphia on Thursday night without much of an audience. A few feet away, a phalanx of cameramen formed around Tim Tebow's locker - and Tebow wasn't even there. They just waited. There were Tebow jerseys in the stands Thursday night at MetLife Stadium and the fans cheered when he entered the Eagles' 24-18 preseason loss to the New York Jets. His performance merited the attention. In a game that could decide who might be the third quarterback for the Eagles, Tebow outplayed Barkley and bolstered his stock in the final audition of the preseason.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - If last night's game was the only Eagles preseason action you caught, you're thinking that Chip Kelly intends to run his offense through Raheem Mostert, and that Tim Tebow pretty much has to make the team. Through three quarters of last night's 24-18 loss to the New York Jets that blessedly ended the preseason, Mostert had run for 59 yards on a dozen carries, and caught seven passes for 88 yards. The Eagles had completed only 10 passes, seven of them caught by Mostert.

After practice finished on Monday and Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez retreated to the Eagles' locker room, Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow remained on the field for a few minutes of extra work. Barkley and Tebow, in competition for the No. 3 job, must prepare for the final preseason game on Thursday. It will be a "big week" for those playing in the game against the New York Jets, coach Chip Kelly said. The game could determine which quarterback makes the roster. What might be the most scrutinized No. 3 quarterback competition in the NFL is facing its expiration date.

IF GOOD SENSE prevails, as it usually does for Chip Kelly, then the Tim Tebow era in Philadelphia will end with final cuts, due Saturday at 4 p.m. Oh, there were some fun times: the fourth quarter against the Colts in the preseason opener, and . . . well . . . Anyway: How could Kelly let such a good thing die? Well, because Tim Tebow does not throw the football very hard, or very accurately, or very quickly. These, for a quarterback, are called liabilities. Shortcomings.

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.
