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.
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.
