Philadelphia Eagles’ Brandon Graham thinks not only will Tim Tebow make the team, he will be playing a lot next season.

The linebacker thinks Tebow will play a key part in the Eagles aim next season of winning the NFC East, even after the quarterback being out of the NFL for two years.

Many people think however, Tebow will struggle to make the cut from the 90-man to the 53-man roster come the end of the pre-season.

Graham told Detroit Radio host Lauren Beasley: ““Tim Tebow is going to shock a lot of people, because he is going to make the team, and I think he will play a lot.”

Graham may be a bit optimistic, as Tebow has struggled to make the final cut of a NFL team since his one season with the New York Jets in 2012. He did have time with the New England Patriots in 2013 but he failed to make the 53-man cut.

Tebow hasn’t even been a starting quarterback in the NFL since his time with the Denver Broncos back in the 2011 NFL season, helping them reach the playoffs for the first time in six years.

The 27-year-old quarterback signed a one-year deal with the Eagles in April earlier this year. He is only expected to be a third-string quarterback behind Sam Bradford and ex-Jets teammate Mark Sanchez.

However, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is known as one of the most dynamic coaches in the league with his West-Coast-spread offense and humorous play calling.

He’s made unknown figures, such as Nick Foles, into fan favourites and record breakers. It is unclear how Kelly is going to use Tebow though, or if he is even a key part of the team.

He could contribute as a change-of-pace quarterback because of his ability to run with the ball, or something else entirely. Kelly probably has some magic for Tebow in that playbook of his.

Tebow still has to earn his spot on the team, but taking the Broncos to the divisional round of the playoffs for the first time in six years has to count for something.

In the end, all he does is win.
