Tim Tebow has been released by the New England Patriots according to multiple sources. The quarterback struggled in limited action during the preseason, and displayed the same awkward throwing motion that has made scouts cringe throughout his career.
The next question is whether or not this spells the end of Tebow’s NFL career. After failing to impress during a stop in New York last year, and now New England, how many more chances are out there for the former Heisman Trophy winner?
According to some scouts earlier in August, Tebow’s skills have regressed throughout his career to the point where he would now struggle to make an Arena Football League roster.
Whether or not that is true, Tebow did not do enough to impress Patriots coach Bill Belichick and unseat Ryan Mallett for the right to back up Tom Brady.
In three preseason games (he did not appear in week 3) with the Patriots, Tim Tebow was just 11-30 passing for 145 yards with a pair of both touchdowns and interceptions.
Standing strong in the face of his latest adversity, the devoutly religious Tebow stated that “I’m blessed because of my faith, because you don’t have to worry about the future, because I know who holds my future. A lot of times people use that as a cliche, but it’s something I try to live by. It really gives you a lot of peace in whatever circumstance you’re in.”
