Tim Tebow’s NFL Career Is Basically Over

He was let go by the New England Patriots on Saturday, and yesterday every other NFL team passed on him. Tebow took to Twitter to extend his thanks to the Patriots and quote scripture.

Quarterback Tim Tebow, as well known for his oft-publicized faith as for his football prowess, was cut from the New England Patriots on Saturday.

Adding insult to injury on Sunday, and essentially dooming his prospects in the NFL, every other franchise in the football league passed on his minimum salary contract.

Tebow was a Heisman Trophy winner as a college quarterback with the University of Florida and made a big splash in the pros as a backup QB for the Denver Broncos. He never followed through on his initial promise and was traded to the New York Jets, then the Patriots.

A devout Christian and evangelist, Tebow spoke publicly of his religion at every opportunity and led prayer circles before every game. On Saturday, following the news of his ouster from New England, Tebow characteristically quoted the Bible on Twitter.
