All you Tim Tebow fans can now say goodbye! Your boy has been dropped! The moving truck has been ordered to stop by the New England Patriots locker room and pack up his gear.
The New England Patriots released Tim Tebow on Saturday, a move that leaves the polarizing quarterback’s future in doubt.
The Pats’ decision to cut ties with Tebow before Saturday’s 6 p.m. ET 53-man roster deadline was first reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tebow, who signed with the Patriots in June, struggled to find consistency throughout the preseason, completing 11 of 30 passes for 145 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in three games. He also ran 16 times for 91 yards.
The move by the Patriots will make for an uncertain future for Tebow, who failed to draw much interest this past offseason after he was released by the New York Jets.
Earlier this week, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he was “rooting for” Tebow to make the Patriots’ 53-man roster, but said the decision was ultimately up to Belichick. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who drafted and coached Tebow in Denver, also was among those to praise Tebow for his work ethic. – ESPN
