LeSean McCoy: Tim Tebow is worse than my two-year old son

It must be tough being Tim Tebow sometimes.

Once predicted to star in the NFL after an impressive college career that included a Heisman trophy, the much-maligned quarterback is now out in the cold having not appeared in the pro league since 2012.

And it doesn't look like he is being backed for a return anytime soon - certainly not by Philadelphia Eagles star LeSean McCoy.

McCoy spoke to TMZ recently and the 25-year old didn't exactly hold back when giving his opinion on the former Jets and Patriots signal-caller when asked:

"My son is two, and I'd pick my son over Tim Tebow," said McCoy after laughing at the suggestion that Tebow was one of the most talented players currently without a team.

When you struggle to get a pick ahead of someone who wasn't even born the last time you stepped out on to the gridiron that might be a sign that your talents lie elsewhere.

And Tebow may well be of that opinion to as he settles into his new role as college football analyst for ESPN - a position he took up in late 2013.

But, whilst he called time on his playing career in December last year, at just 26-years old the former Florida QB would surely be tempted back to the game should he find a team willing to take him on.

It just looks like for now, he should avoid the Philadelphia Eagles when sending out his résumé.
