Tim Tebow Signed by New England Patriots

Posted on June 11, 2013

Tim Tebow has been signed by the New England Patriots after being cut by the New York Jets. ESPN reports that Tebow signed a two year deal. The Patriots already have Tom Brady, one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, so it is not clear whether they plan to have Tebow available as a backup quarterback or possibly also use him as a fullback or receiver.

Tebow said in a statement, "First and foremost, I just want to thank the Patriots for giving me an opportunity. I'm very thankful. It's such an honor to be a Patriot and play for coach Belichick and for coach McDaniels, and learn under Tom and be a part of this great franchise. It's a very successful franchise. I found out first hand. I lost to them several times."
