After two and a half short months as a New England Patriot, Tim Tebow has been released from the team. This has his fans in a bit of an uproar, how does a man with a Heisman Trophy and an international following get lose three jobs in less than two years? Tebow has suffered from some pretty crappy luck if you ask me, being traded to the New York Jets started this downward spiral. From the start we knew that Tebow didn’t perform well during team practices, but because of this, Tebow wasn’t given the chance to start in New York.
Then what everyone was expecting to happen, happened. Tebow was waivered by the Jets and signed by the New England Patriots on June 11th. Now, just 12 weeks after being hired by the team and just a couple days after he threw two touchdown passes and led the Patriots to beat the New York Giants in their final preseason game, Tebow is no longer part of the team.
Is it just me or does that seem a little unfair? Granted, the Pats didn’t need another quarterback anyways, but with Aaron Hernandez being tried for murder and being released from the team, couldn’t they implement Tebow elsewhere, like at the tight end position? One would think that they would try to keep such an internationally known player on their team, but apparently the publicity doesn’t mean anything, or are they taking advantage of a different type of publicity?
There are a lot of questions that we can ask about this situation, but the one I have is, where will Tebow end up? Or is his career over at the ripe old age of 26? Honestly, I have never been a fan of the Patriots, that comes with being a Giants fan, but I have been a fan of Tebow since his days as a Florida State Gator. I will keep you posted on any new details on Tebow and where he will end up, someone is bound to pick him up, he deserves to play in the NFL!
