Tim Tebow to Pursue ‘Lifelong Dream’ After Release by Patriots

Backup quarterback Tim Tebow was released by the New England Patriots on Saturday after failing to make the final roster for the new season.

Tebow, who was signed to the Patriots in June, made the final 75 earlier in the week but lost out in the final cut.

NFL teams had until 6 p.m. ET Saturday to reduce their rosters to a maximum of 53 players before the season kicks off Thursday.
