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.

New York Jets QB Tim Tebow has worked with independent quarterbacks coach Steve Clarkson this offseason, and Clarkson said he believes Tebow has fixed his throwing motion. Clarkson said he believes the flaws in his throwing motion were due to bad footwork. Clarkson also believes that Tebow was too heavy this season to play well.
Huddle Up: Tebow's new mechanics will be on display for any team that wishes to check them out; just contact the Jets' front office.

New York Jets QB Tim Tebow reported for the first day of offseason workouts Monday, April 15.
Huddle Up: We haven't had a Tebow update in a while, but apparently the Jets are getting a start on their punt protection practice.

The St. Louis Rams say they are not interested in trading for New York Jets QB Tim Tebow. The Rams were believed to be interested in Tebow last offseason.
Huddle Up: Tebow's options seem to dwindle by the day ...

The Seattle Seahawks did look into the possibility of trading for New York Jets QB Tim Tebow but likely will not pursue him at this point.
Huddle Up: Hey, it's at least as much interest as any team has shown in Tebow in a while. Keep this warming on the back burner until Seattle settles on another veteran backup.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said QB Tim Tebow will also receive an opportunity to compete for the team's starting quarterback job in 2013 as long as he is on the roster. "He's on the roster, and he'll get a chance to compete," Ryan said of Tebow. "We'll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster." Nothing has changed, however, with regard to Tebow's status on the team, according to a league source. The Jets are holding out hope they can trade him and are in no rush to do so. They could stretch the process out to the NFL Draft, but failing a trade, the team will release him.
Huddle Up: It's been a while since we've had some Tebow news, but indications are he won't make it to training camp with the Jets in order to compete for the starting gig.

The New York Jets will try to shop QB Tim Tebow at the NFL Scouting Combine. The first day they can trade Tebow is March 12, so they might keep him until then with the hope that they can swing a deal. Chances are, however, the Jets will not receive interest, so they will likely end up releasing Tebow.
Huddle Up: Good luck to the Jets, as they have effectively killed any market that once existed for Tebow. Expect him to be released at some point, with a shot at catching on with a team looking for a run-first backup quarterback.

Out of the past 15 quarterbacks selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, New York Jets QB Tim Tebow is the only one not starting.
Huddle Up: Could it be that Tebow was overdrafted by a round -- or 3 -- when Josh McDaniels and the Broncos moved up into the first round to snare the QB in 2010?

The New York Jets wanted to use QB Tim Tebow at tailback this year, but they never got around to doing so, according to a person with knowledge of the team's plans. It was the team's original vision when they initially traded for him, and it was going to be more than just in an emergency situation. However, former offensive coordinator Tony Sparano didn't make that happen. It's unclear if the team's next offensive coordinator will be willing to work Tebow in as a tailback, which would keep Tebow around.
Huddle Up: It's hard to imagine a position switch sitting well with Tebow, who still sees himself as a starting NFL QB. It's also hard to see Tebow on the Jets' roster next season after repeatedly being passed over for starts and playing time during the sad circus that was the team's 2012 campaign.

New York Jets QB Tim Tebow will request to be traded or released after the season assuming that QB Greg McElroy starts the final two games. Tebow's desire to part ways with the Jets came to a head after McElroy leapfrogged him on the depth chart, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Tebow has played the good teammate all season while the Jets have struggled at the quarterback position. And now that it's become crystal clear the Jets have no intention of using him for anything other than selling jerseys and punt protection, expect him to make some noise about punching his ticket out of New York.
