After years away from football, former Nease High School and Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow is returning to the NFL.

Philadelphia Eagles Coach Chip Kelly is adding Tebow to his team’s roster. WJCT Sports Analyst Cole Pepper says the First Coast’s favorite quarterback could face an uphill battle in the City of Brotherly Love.

“If he plays and struggles in Philadelphia, where they booed Santa Claus, I think it’s a very difficult city to not immediately play well in. There are more forgiving cities in the National Football League, to be sure,” Pepper said.

Hundreds of faith and community leaders are expected to meet at Jacksonville’s Potter’s House Church Monday to press city officials about Jacksonville’s crime problem, along with discussing other campaign issues like education, jobs and mental health. The event is sponsored by ICARE, the Interfaith Coalition for Action, Reconciliation and Empowerment. We speak with ICARE members Rev. Bruce Havens, of Arlington Congregational, and Rev. James Wiggins, of St. Paul Lutheran Church.
