Jet's Drop Tebow, NFL Career Jeopardy?

Ad Feedback

Tim Tebow's NFL career could be in jeopardy. On Monday, the Jets announced they've dropped him as their back-up quarterback after only one season.

Tebow enthusiasts blame Jets head coach Rex Ryan, who decided to give the starting quarterback job to third-string quarterback Greg McElroy.

"I can answer this question a million ways -- frontward, backward, sideways, anything else," Ryan said. "It's my decision and I based it on a gut feeling -- or whatever."

"Everything it comes down to is, I believe it's the best decision for our team," Ryan continued. "That's the only factor that goes into these decisions."

Ryan left Tebow fans with these parting words in USA Today: "We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow," Ryan said. "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."

There are no confirmed NFL offers on the table so far, but the Canadian football league has shown an interest in him, as well as an Orlando arena football league.

Not unexpectedly, Tebow took to Twitter a few hours after being cut, quoting Proverbs 3:5-6.

Trust in the Lord will all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

It's now a faith game for the former quarterback in limbo.
