While the decision hasn’t been announced officially yet, it hasn’t stopped the fan reaction on social media.
One person on Twitter tweeting out “College football is cancelled, so ESPN brings you 24 hours of Tebow.”
A person close to the decision says the Patriots waived the former Florida Gator QB on Saturday morning. Does this mean Tebow’s NFL career is over as well?
Tebow signed a two-year contract with the team which included no guarantees. In three preseason appearances with the organization, he was 11 of 30 for 145 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
The Patriots have carried only two quarterbacks in recent years, and they already have Ryan Mallett backing up Tom Brady. Tebow admitted on Thursday night he wasn’t sure if he’d done enough to stick.
Prior to the final preseason game Thursday with the Patriots, Tebow was asked what he would do if he was cut.
“I’m blessed, because of my faith, that I don’t have to worry about the future because I know who holds my future,” Tebow told reporters. “It’s something I try to live by. It really gives you a lot of peace in whatever circumstance I’m in.”
If no one from the NFL calls him, maybe he can become a preacher.
