According to several media reports, Tim Tebow will not be on the New England Patriots’ regular-season roster when they take the field against the Bills in Buffalo next Sunday.
ESPN first reported Tebow being cut, citing a league source who spoke on the condition of anonymity Saturday because the Patriots had not officially announced the move.
Tebow played in only three of New England’s four preseason games, including Thursday night’s game against the New York Giants. The Patriots won 28-20, with Tebow completing six of 11 passes for 91 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed six times for 30 yards and was sacked four times by the Giants defense.
In a series of tweets this afternoon, Tim Tebow reacted to the news of being cut by the New England Patriots: “I would like to thank Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, Coach McDaniels and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a classy organization. I pray for nothing but the best for you all.”
