Tim Tebow: CUT By New England Patriots!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Tim Tebow is done with the New England Patriots, with the team waiving him early Saturday, a week before the 2013 NFL season even begins.

The bigger question? Whether his NFL career is also over.

Tim Tebow, Patriots

ESPN first reported that Tebow, one of the NFL's most popular players, was among the casualties of the team's final cut-down day before the season.

The 26-year-old Tebow signed a two-year contract with the Patriots that included no guarantees. In three preseason appearances, he was not great.

Completing just 11-of-30 passes for two TDs and two interceptions, Tim Tebow admitted Thursday that he was not sure he had done well enough to stay.

He hadn't. Ryan Mallett will be Tom Brady's backup.

There is still a possibility that Pats coach Bill Belichick could have an interest in bringing Tebow back on his 53-man roster at some point in 2013.

If he believes Tebow can help him win a game as a potential read-option situational package wrinkle, and there is an open roster spot, you never know.

Tebow could also help Belichick's defense prepare for facing a read-option attack from an opponent by running the scout team offense in practice.

That's all speculation for the time being, though. The former Heisman winner once again being without an NFL team despite his popularity is a fact.

There's always the Omaha Beef.
