It's been a very busy season for the Eagles, who have already made a TON of moves this offseason, and it certainly seems like the quarterback position is up for grabs!

Tebow will be competing with Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, and Matt Barkely, and none of them really seem to have to slot locked up!

So does this mean we'll get to see Timmy back in action next season? We guess we'll just have to wait and find out!

Amazing news!

Oh say did you see this yet?

Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil performed the National Anthem at the United States Football League's Las Vegas Outlaws game on Tuesday, and it was… let's say "a little pitchy, dawg."

But while the singing was a bit off, the experience was unforgettable!!

Despite the fact that Vince's Star-Spangled Banner veers off-key quite a lot — and we're not sure all the words were there — this version is still pretty entertaining. And it's all thanks to the vet rocker's showmanship!

Check out the video (below) and fast forward to around the 5:00 mark to get the anthem party started!!

Openly Gay Football Player Michael Sam Drops Bomb: 'I Am Not The Only Gay Person In The NFL'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballNFLMichael Sam

no title

Michael Sam was the first openly gay football player to be selected in the NFL draft.

That is a huge milestone for the concussion-causing, overly macho sport.

But Sam isn't the only one, according to him! He said:

"I am not the only gay person in the NFL. I'm just saying there is a lot of us. I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL.

Was it a risky move? Yes. But at that moment, the reason why I came out is I thought it wasn't going to be a big deal. Maybe I was naive. Maybe I thought it was 2014, and people will understand that there's gay NFL players. There's gay athletes everywhere. But I was clearly wrong. It was a huge deal.

The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I'm just saying there's some famous people, and I'm not the only one."

That's incredible!!

It'd make sense to assume that obviously there'd be a percentage of gay men playing in the NFL but "some famous" players??

Sam makes it seem like even he was shocked at how many players reached out to him.

We hope others can follow his example. It's time to swing wide the closet doors in professional sports and let the fab out!!

It's 2015 people. The time for equality for all is now. Thank goodness for people like Michael, who are willing to take that first, crucial step!
