Tim Tebow’s rollercoaster ride seems to be taking a maintenance break. Tebow had the opportunity to make an NFL roster after being cut by the New England Patriots on Saturday. Today, there wasn’t a single team to place a waiver claim for the former Heisman winner.
The remaining 31 teams passed on the opportunity to add Tebow to their roster; his NFL career appears to be over, for now at least. Even teams desperate for a quarterback were willing to make due without Tebow’s services.
Tebow’s most successful season came in 2011 with the Denver Broncos. Despite completing only 46.5 percent of his passes, Tebow led the Broncos to a 7-4 record and a playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. With his arm and his legs, Tebow scored 18 touchdowns in 2011 while throwing six interceptions.
With the arrival of Peyton Manning in Denver, Tebow was traded to the Jets at the start of the 2012 season and was converted to fullback and tight end. He only played in three of the Patriots preseason games and failed to impress head coach Bill Bilichick.
If Tebow proved anything while in the NFL, he showed how bad he was at quarterback, but how good he was at winning when he had the chance. Will he find a home in the Canadian Football League, or will there be an NFL squad in need of Tebow’s arm?
