The New England Patriots have released QB Tim Tebow.
Huddle Up: This is no surprise. Bill Belichick doesn't waste roster spots and the fact is New England had no use for Tebow with Ryan Mallett firmly entrenched as the Patriots' No. 2 quarterback. After failing with his third team since 2010, Tebow's NFL career is on life support.

New England Patriots QB Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes and one interception in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 29, which the Patriots won 28-20 over the New York Giants. Tebow had a 52-yard touchdown pass and a 13-yard run. He was 6 for 11 for 91 yards. He also gained 30 yards on six carries.
Huddle Up: Tebow isn't going to push Tom Brady or Ryan Mallett for playing time, but he did show enough that maybe the Patriots keep him around for a package of plays just to throw a wrinkle at defenses.

New England Patriots QB Tim Tebow struggled in his first day of camp Friday, July 26. He reportedly short-armed a few throws, had a delayed read on a 7-on-7 drills and had some passes deflected while forcing throws into coverage on other occasions. However, as usual, his ability to break the pocket and his movement skills stood out.
Huddle Up: Look, if we don't keep you updated on Tebow where are you going to get your information? Okay, besides 24/7 on every ESPN outlet.

New England Patriots QB Tim Tebow is catching passes in an unorthodox drill that has him lining up with running backs and receivers with QB Ryan Mallett throwing to them. It's a non-contact tackling drill.
Huddle Up: Let Tebow Watch II commence! Will he be Tom Brady's backup? Will he be the guy to replace Gronk? Will he deflect some of the media attention from the Aaron Hernandez case? No worries; everything Tebow does will be overcovered by the media so you won't miss a thing.

New England Patriots QB Tim Tebow is expected to work only as a quarterback during training camp and likely will not see any time at tight end.
Huddle Up: Don't despair, die-hard Tebow backers, we're talking about the highly-unpredictable Patriots here -- a franchise which values player versatility and has had LBs catching TD passes, QBs performing drop kicks and WRs playing prominent roles in the defensive backfield.

The New England Patriots will sign free-agent QB Tim Tebow and expect him to report for the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 11. The Patriots are expected to use Tebow as a quarterback during their minicamp; Tebow will also study how to play tight end.
Huddle Up: Tebow isn't about to unseat Tom Brady, but he could figure into a specialty package for the Patriots or even help fill the tight end void if Rob Gronkowski's back and/or forearm prevent him from opening the season with the team. And with Tebow back in the league ESPN has roughly 12-14 hours of daily programming covered.

The New York Jets waived QB Tim Tebow. The Jets allowed Tebow to seek a trade in the offseason, and more than one team inquired about him, but he wasn't willing to play tight end.
Huddle Up: At this juncture it will be tough for an NFL team to take a chance on adding Tebow as a quarterback, even though he's the only Heisman-winning quarterback in the past 25 years to win an NFL playoff game (stat of the day courtesy of The Dan Patrick Show). He may have to take his game north of the border a la Doug Flutie, or agree to switch positions.
