Tim Tebow is out of a job again in the NFL. On Saturday, the quarterback was released by the New England Patriots after a pretty dismal preseason. Many fans and players were rooting for Tebow, including the owner of the Patriots Bob Kraft. But ultimately, the final decision rested in the hands of head coach Bill Belichick who decided Tebow wasn't one of the 53 players to make the team. As CNN reports on September 1, Tebow is still holding on to his dream of being an NFL quarterback.
It is this commitment and belief in self that has made Tim Tebow a man worth rooting for. In 2010, the 26-year-old was able to lead a 1-4 Denver Broncos team to the playoffs. His ability to find a way to win gained him the following that he has and a reason why anything he does is a story.
The former Heisman Trophy winner is the ultimate locker room guy, a player any coach would love to have but is it worth his inefficiencies at the quarterback position?
Tebow, who is very outspoken about his Christian faith, thanked the Patriots for giving him the opportunity that not many other teams were willing to give him at the time. He was grateful to be a part of a "classy organization" , but is also not giving up on what he believes is his destiny.
On Saturday, Tebow tweeted:
"I pray for nothing but the best for you all. I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."
The good thing for Tebow is that every team in the NFL is just a hit away from needing a quarterback. With is locker room leadership, faith and his already established history of winning games, there will be a team that will take the chance. Tim Tebow just has to be ready.
