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.
