The New England Patriots have cut Tim Tebow from the team after just about 12 weeks with the team, according to a Huffington Post report on Saturday. This is the third team to release the famed football quarterback star in the past year-and-a-half. The source of the information remained anonymous since the team has not officially made the announcement yet. The anonymous source’s information was initially announced by ESPN – an extremely reliable source.
With the regular season just about to begin, it appears that he won’t be picked up elsewhere – which means this could be the end of his NFL career. After being signed on with the Patriots on June 11, many thought that coach Bill Belichick would find would use Tebow in other positions, but that reportedly never materialized. Tebow was said to only be useful in the quarterback position. The signing of Tebow involved a two-year with no guaranteed money. An anonymous source said he would make $630,000 this year when including incentives.
The New England team, by mandatory regular-season rules, had to cut its players’ roster down by 12 players to meet the 53-player limit by 6 p.m. EDT on Saturday.
Previously, Tebow played with the Denver Broncos, the New York Jets, and with Florida – where he was involved with two teams that won national championships.
