10. Tebowmania comes to New England
It was fun while it lasted. And that was until cut-down day. Tim Tebow joined the Patriots during training camp in 2013 and created mostly positive buzz in the wake of the murder arrest of Aaron Hernandez.
But three is a crowd when it comes to quarterbacks on the New England roster and the throwing-challenged former Heisman winner was not able to sneak ahead of Ryan Mallett in the Patriots pecking order. In his last preseason game, Tebow performed well—completing six-of-11 passes for 91 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. But it wasn’t enough to make him stick with Bill Belichick.
I would like to thank Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, Coach McDaniels and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity...— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013
