Tim Tebow Released by New England Patriots
Tim Tebow has gone through three NFL teams in a little over a year. Will there be a fourth?
ESPN (“Patriots release Tim Tebow“):
The New England Patriots have released polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tebow, who signed with the Patriots in June, struggled to find consistency throughout the preseason. He never seriously threatened Ryan Mallett for the backup job behind Tom Brady.
Tebow is a by all accounts a great guy and one of the great college quarterbacks—indeed, college football players—to ever play the game. He’s just not an NFL quarterback. One wonders what his next move is. Does he go to Canada or one of the minor leagues and try to prove himself? Or does he switch to another position, likely tight end or H-back? He’s too young and too good an athlete to give up on the game entirely.
