Tim Tebow is no longer on the New York Jets, the team announced on Monday.
Tebow, 25, went from being a starting quarterback who led the Denver Broncos to a playoff run in 2012 to being signed on with the Jets last March where he was mostly utilized for special teams options. While Tebow only completed eight pass attempts, six completions, 32 rushes and 102 yards with no touchdowns for the Jets, head coach Rex Ryan released a statement speaking about the team's appreciation for the 25-year-old who became the third string QB for the team.
"We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow," Ryan said in a statement obtained by ESPN. "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward." more >>

No one seems to question Tim Tebow's capabilities when it comes to inspirational speeches. So it was with open arms that Wichita State University men's basketball team, fresh off an upset victory over top-seeded Gonzaga during NCAA's March Madness, granted the Jets QB his request to talk to the players on their bus.
"This you will remember for the rest of your lives," said Tebow, whose plane was refueling in Wichita when the Shockers' bus arrived Sunday. "Some of you might go play in the NBA and have great lives, but this is the time you will remember … these are the special times in your lives regardless of what you do in the future."
As the result of Wichita State's 76-70 victory, the Shockers advanced to the "Sweet 16" and are scheduled to play La Salle on Thursday. The Shockers went into the tournament as a No. 9 seed. The team made five consecutive 3-pointers in the win that ousted the West Region's top seed and the nation's No. 1 team during the regular season. more >>
Tim Tebow is no stranger to television cameras, but one movie producer is giving the New York Jets quarterback the opportunity to star in his next film.
David Dginguerian, a producer of the 2012 film "Crossroad," sent a letter to Tebow in which he praised the Christian quarterback for being a positive role model.
"You have been a great idol for so many by your display of courage and strong faith that all things work together for those who love God and are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)," wrote Dginguerian, according to the letter obtained by TMZ. more >>
Pastor Miles McPherson of Rock Church in San Diego, who played defensive back for the Chargers in the early '80s, recently said that the National Football League has likely abandoned the idea of the Jets' Tim Tebow ever re-establishing himself as an NFL quarterback.
"It appears the NFL is convinced he can't play quarterback. From all I hear, they are convinced of that," McPherson told The Christian Post when asked about Tebow at the end of an interview discussing his new book, God in the Mirror – Discovering Who You Were Created to Be.
While admitting he has no insider information about Tebow's fate, when asked for his opinion about the evangelical Christian athlete's future in the NFL, he said, "It depends on what he wants. If he is saying, 'I'm only going to play quarterback,' it's very likely he will not play again. If he says, 'I'm willing to do something else (play another position)' then he will go some place because he is such a great leader, athlete, and competitor." more >>
