49ers, Eagles disinterested in Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow may have a hard time finding another NFL team after being released by the Jets on Monday, as teams are already trying to distance themselves from the polarizing quarterback.

Tim Tebow has been a free agent for less than a day, and NFL teams are already going out of their way to say that they are not interested in signing him.

The San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles were speculated to be landing spots for the former Bronco and Jet due to their offensive schemes, but both teams would seem to be going in different directions. The 49ers selected South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels in the seventh round of the draft, and a source told CSNPhilly that the team isn't interested in Tebow. Those aren't the only teams that won't be signing Tebow, though, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also aren't interested, according to Pro Football Talk.

The most common team linked to Tebow has been the Jacksonville Jaguars, since it's his hometown and the team arguably still needs a quarterback. That won't be happening, as a team spokesman said the Jags are not interested in the former Florida Gator.

One team that is interested in Tebow is the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. General manager Jim Popp said that he would welcome Tebow as a backup to longtime starter Anthony Calvillo. The Arena League's Orlando Predators still have a contract waiting for him, as well.
