(Newser) – Tim Tebow has been dumped by a third NFL team. The Patriots have cut Tebow less than a week before the start of the regular season, reports ESPN and the AP. Not that he would have played much anyway: Tebow would have been backing up Ryan Mallett, who is himself backing up Tom Brady. The Broncos and Jets previously got rid of Tebow, but don't count him out of the NFL just yet, writes Mike Chiari at Bleacher Report. The former Florida star "has been chewed up and spit out by the NFL machine over the past couple of years, but he is certainly resilient." Click for the full column. (Or maybe politics is in his future?)

somebody tell Tim that God moved to Canada. He'll be in the CFL before you can say "bless you".

I'm a Patriots fan. They made the right move, but I don't get why so many people think it's hilarious that he was cut. I guess it's trendy to cheer for thugs, and guys who are out getting arrested. I don't agree with Tebow's theological beliefs, but I still think he's a good guy. When he's not on the football field, he's usually at a children's hospital, or making a phone call to a fan. He's a good guy, and I'm not sure why so many hate him. Maybe it's because his actions remind some people of just how ugly they are on the inside. Good luck Tim.
