Tim Tebow waived by New York Jets after one season

The Tim Tebow error in New York finally -- mercifully -- is over.

The New York Jets announced Monday morning that Tebow was waived after one season with the team. NFL.com's Albert Breer and Ian Rapoport reported that Tebow was told face-to-face by new general manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan when Tebow arrived for phase two of the Jets' offseason program.

Idzik insisted on keeping Tebow through the 2013 NFL Draft in case the Jets could find a trade partner or use for him. After selecting quarterback Geno Smith in the second round, Tebow -- not Mark Sanchez -- is the odd man out.

Tebow threw only eight passes as a Jet and rushed the ball 32 times, without great effectiveness. Despite awful quarterback play in front of Tebow, Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano never wanted to use Tebow as a starter. And they had no idea how to use him as a backup. The Jets wasted a fourth- and sixth-round pick in exchange for Tebow in a trade last offseason that smacked of ownership involvement.

Jets owner Woody Johnson wanted headlines; he got them. He just didn't get a lot of victories. Ryan threw one, last useless verbal bouquet to Tebow on his way out the door.

"We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow," Ryan said in a statement released by the Jets. "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward."

No way Tim Tebow could pass on Patriots

Bill Belichick always says he makes moves with the best interests of the team in mind and doesn’t care about the headlines. He wasn’t afraid to bring in controversial receiver Randy Moss or let fan-favorite Wes Welker leave in free agency.

But his latest move will surely test that mantra.

Belichick signed unwanted “quarterback” Tim Tebow yesterday. The lightning rod was let go by the Jets this spring after a season in which he barely got off the bench on a very bad team.

On his way out, and even before, there were plenty of coaches and players claiming he just couldn’t play quarterback because he simply can’t throw the football well enough.

That may still be true, but Belichick has always liked Tebow’s makeup and competitiveness. He brings intangibles that can’t be taught. How else could he lead the Denver Broncos to the AFC divisional round before losing to the Pats two seasons ago?

While there was plenty of speculation Tebow’s days were done as an NFL quarterback, he wound up in one of the few places where he provides absolutely no threat to the incumbent, and where the accompanying media circus will immediately be squelched.

Im glad to see him make it on somewhere. I think he can be a good football player outside the qb position. If there is any team that can get him to change its the Pats.

Unless he agrees to play another position, I don't see him playing at all this year. It's been said there will be no Tebow package/wildcat plays for him. Brady won't be taken off the field in the redzone. For him to be able to learn under Brady/McDaniels can only be a positive. If he improoves his play, Pats could end up with a trade chip. If not, the #3 qb is never expected to provide much anyway.
