Tim Tebow Released by New England Patriots

Kyle Koster

The New England Patriots have released Tim Tebow. He will not be on the team’s 53-man roster. He will not serve as a backup to Tom Brady or Ryan Mallett. He will not be a high-profile punt protector.

Tebow completed just 36 percent of his preseason passes for 145 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. His 47.2 QB rating apparently failed to inspire enough confidence in Bill Belichick.

Tebow himself was unsure if he’d done enough to earn a roster spot. Now we’re all perfectly clear.
