I think at this point a lot of people commenting on Tim Tebow’s release from the Jets and his future are just piling on, but that comes with the territory when you are who he is.
Tebow’s CFL rights are owned by Montreal Alouettes and their GM Jim Popp was asked about Tebow possibly making the trip north to play for them.
You would assume that Tebow having been an NFL starter would be welcomed and given preferential treatment in Canada. Not so fast according to Popp.
According to TSN Canada, Popp says Tebow would have to compete just to be the backup.
“If he wants to come to Canada he would be in the same situation as the one he was in with New York,” said Montreal general manager Jim Popp. “He can come here and compete to be the backup to Anthony Calvillo and learn the game, just like Jeff Garcia did (behind Doug Flutie). And one day he might be the guy; that’s our vision. He can learn from the best.”
Popp said he had no plans to contact Tebow’s agents and assumes the quarterback w...

NEW YORK'S NOT MY HOME
After one tumultuous season, the Tim Tebow Experiment by the New York Jets has come to an end, with the team releasing the quarterback early on Monday morning.
Since the Jets released Tim Tebow yesterday, there's been some talk around the NFL community that another team may be willing to pick up Tebow if he's willing to play a different position such as fullback or tight end. Now, it seems, the Jets never considered changing his position, viewing him as a quarterback to till the end. On "Mike and Mike in the Morning,"...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, a source told him that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is “probably gone” soon. I know the Jets just might be naive enough to think they can still trade Tebow, but they need to face reality that they won’t be able to and stop wasting his time as well as their own and just get rid of him.

It appears that Tim Tebow ride in the NFL came to an end, as the N.Y. Jets cut him from the team on Monday, but according to a report, Tebow is now looking at a new career.According to the Tampa Bay Tribune, Tebow will be opening up three chicken restaurants. The report goes on to say that Tebow will invest money into three PDQ [People Dedicated to Quality], which specialize in...
According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, Tim Tebow is opening up a restaurant down in Jacksonville, Florida.

It looks like Tebow has new job lined up outside of the NFL since he was just released by the Jets.

Tim Tebow was officially released by the New York Jets. Where do you think he is headed now? Jacksonville? Canada? It's time to Settle It.
ESPN shed thousands of collective tears when the New York Jets released their personal protector on the punt team Monday. Some fans laughed. Others thanked greater powers (why, I don’t know). Some NFL general managers confirmed publicly that their team had no interest in the newly-waived former quarterback. The ears of some GMs perked up. Lions GM Martin...
Former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow through waivers unclaimed today and is now officially a free agent. He can sign with any team at any time.
Just because no teams put in a claim for Tebow doesn’t mean no one is interested. Now that he’s a free agent, we’ll find out if anyone really wants to really sign him.

In a move that surprised no one, the Jets released Tim Tebow. So ends one of the most bizarre moments in Jets history. As many of you know I haven’t been shy about saying that getting Tebow was a mistake and while so many thought the Jets were getting a winner, it was clear that it rattled Mark Sanchez and that Tebow turned out to be anything but what his press clippings said he...
The New York Jets don't know what they're going to do with their quarterback situation, as now it's being reported that the Jets could keep Mark Sanchez and just simply DUMP Tim Tebow.The rumor started making the rounds after the Jets drafted West Virginia QB Geno Smith in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft on Saturday. With the added addition of Smith, the Jets...
So it begins.
ESPN and other media outlets report that the New York Jets released little-used quarterback Tim Tebow this morning, leaving the team with five quarterbacks on the roster.
New York's little brother team might have cut less heralded Greg McElroy, Matt Simms, or, um. Mark Sanchez. Instead they excised the most useless outsider in NFL history.
Thanks to the media, Tim Tebow is crammed down the publics throats every single chance they can get. The New York Jets releasing Tim Tebow was given more publicity on ESPN than Jason Collins coming out as the first active gay athlete in a major sport, which is pathetic given Tebow’s NFL career. Mandatory.com feels similarly about the Tim Tebow circus and made a hilarious LinkedIn...
Thankfully, we haven't heard too much noise lately from the Bristol underworld kingdom of First Take. Tim Tebow's NFL career being on life support and the brilliant play of LeBron James have worked against two of the show's long-standing pillars - that Tebow is a winner and James is not. Instead of building a show on a solid foundation of insight and analysis, ESPN...
April 29th, 2013 will be remembered as an important day in American pro sports as Jason Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated exclusive as the first active gay athlete in the four major sports.
It will not be remembered as the day the New York Jets replaced Tim Tebow or the day after the 8th seeded Los Angeles Lakers were swept from the NBA Playoffs.
And yet, if you watched...
