The City of Brotherly Love may also be the city of second (and third) chances, as the Philadelphia Eagles officially signed quarterback Tim Tebow to a one-year contract on Monday.

Tebow, 27, hasn't played a snap in the NFL in over two years since being cut by the New England Patriots before the 2013 season.

Originally a first-round draft choice of the Denver Broncos in 2010, the 6-3, 236-pound Tebow worked out with the Eagles last month and must have impressed Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly. 

Philadelphia missed out on the playoffs despite compiling a 10-6 record and Kelly has made a number of surprising roster moves this offseason. 

The Eagles already have four other quarterbacks on their roster: Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. 

Bradford and Tebow faced each other in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game.

Tebow's Florida Gators defeated Bradford and the No. 1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners 21-14. 

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper went to Florida and was Tebow's roommate in college. 

Former Patriot and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez was also Tebow's college teammate. 

Fans can already purchase a Nike Tim Tebow midnight green Philadelphia Eagles game jersey for $99.95. 

He will wear No. 11 with the team. 

News of the deal leaked Sunday, the same day Tebow tweeted: 'Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32.' 

Tebow has thrown 173 completions, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 35 games in the NFL

Tebow hasn't played in a regular season game since 2012 when he was with the New York Jets. 

He worked as a television analyst last year with the SEC Network and ESPN.

Before signing his deal, Tebow was working out with noted throwing coach Tom House, according to the Eagles

His accuracy and skill as a NFL-caliber passer has been questioned since he was drafted. 

Tebow is still highly popular after leading Florida to two national titles and spending two seasons with Denver.

He helped the Broncos win an AFC West title and won a playoff game before being dealt to the Jets after the 2011 season when Peyton Manning arrived in Denver 

Many fans follow Tebow because of his strong Christian beliefs.

A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Tebow has served as the chairman for the Tim Tebow Foundation since its inception in 2010.
