    Tim Tebow cut by New England Patriots

    The Tim Tebow Experience is over in New England.

    Tebow was released by the team Saturday, ending another chapter in the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's wandering pro career, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport was told by a source informed of the move.

    Despite the requisite fervor draped upon Tebow's every move, it's far from a surprising transaction if the Patriots intended to fill their 53-man roster with the best players available. With Ryan Mallett firmly in place as Tom Brady's backup, Tebow played himself out of the role during an underwhelming preseason.

    Tebow was signed in June, a move that made some sense considering the presence of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels -- Tebow's former Denver Broncos coach who drafted him in 2010 -- and Bill Belichick, whose affinity for University of Florida players is well-documented.

    Still, the Patriots needed to see Tebow develop as a quarterback in time for the regular season, and he didn't come close: His 11-of-30 passing performance over three appearances netted just 145 yards, with a pair of touchdowns and two picks.

    Coming off an unproductive and chaotic 2012 campaign with the New York Jets, it's fair to wonder if Tebow's days in the NFL have drawn to a close.

    Asked after Thursday's preseason finale against the New York Giants if he was worried about sitting on the roster bubble, Tebow was typically stoic:

    "I'm blessed, because of my faith, that I don't have to worry about the future because I know who holds my future," Tebow told reporters. "It's something I try to live by. It really gives you a lot of peace in whatever circumstance I'm in."

    Those circumstances, today, will pull Tebow away from New England. Where he lands next is anyone's guess.

    Nah, some team that cannot draw might give him a call. Talented or not, a lot of people love the guy.

    I see the guy becoming a motivational speaker or getting a gig at ESPN, no one organization has done more to keep him relavent then ESPN.
