(Newser) – Reports of the death of Tim Tebow's NFL career were perhaps at least premature: The controversial QB is set to sign with the New England Patriots, sources tell ESPN and the AP. Tebow, who was released by the New York Jets after they failed to find a role for him last season, will join the Patriots' minicamp today, pending a physical, insiders say. Tebow won't be a starting quarterback with the Patriots as long as Tom Brady remains healthy, USA Today notes, but pundits believe New England coach Bill Belicheck will be able to find a place for him—sticking it to the Jets once again.
