Five veterans on the bubble tonight--cover32: Latest on cover32:
1. Jermaine Cunningham
The 25-year-old vet out of Florida has had little to no impact on the Patriots since being drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft. Cunningham has played in a total of 27 games for the Patriots while, recording just 3.5 sacks.
Cunningham projected as a reliable pass-rush option at the next level coming out of college, but he has yet to live up to expectations.
With this being Cunningham’s final year left on his rookie contract, the Patriots might want to part ways and bit the bullet on the $309,375 cap hit.
2. Tim Tebow
In all seriousness, I do believe that Tebow will find himself on New England’s final 53-man roster. Granted, I do not believe that there will be many weeks that he’s active in 2013 but he’ll still be a member of the Patriots.
In the event that Tom Brady goes down with an injury, I’m not completely sure that Bill Belichick, Josh McDaniels and the Patriots are sold on Ryan Ma...

AROUND THE WEB
Thursday night may or may not have been the last sighting of Tim Tebow in an NFL uniform but it is at least a strong possibility.
The Patriots preseason finale against the Giants at Gillette Stadium — a 28-20 New England win — represented a last stand of sorts for Tebow and as he always seems to do he left a confounding impression. Tebow was underwhelming for most of the night...
Tim Tebow showed promise during his short tenure with the Patriots, but New England ultimately decided to let the quarterback go Saturday afternoon.
After making it through one cut, the 26-year-old couldn’t survive the final roster trimming before the regular season gets underway. Tebow Time was short-lived in Boston, but should it have been?
In the past, the Pats have only employed...
A person familiar with the situation says Tim Tebow has been cut by the New England Patriots.
After being let go by his third team in 18 months - and with the regular season just five days away - the quarterback's chances of immediately catching on with another team seem slim. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Patriots had not announced the move. It was...
Tim Tebow is done with the New England Patriots. The next question is whether his NFL career is over too.
The Patriots waived Tebow on Saturday morning ESPN reported.
Tebow 26 signed a two-year contract with the Patriots in June that included no guarantees. In three preseason appearances he was 11-of-30 passing for 145 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Texas A&M will be without its quarterback for the first half of Saturday's season opener against the Rice Owls, but that is not going to stop the Aggie QB from trying to do his part to help the team out (hey--a little prayer never hurts anyone, right?).
The big question may be this--now that Tim Tebow has been cut by the New England Patriots and likely done in the NFL...
Patriots not expected to play in finale--ESPN Boston: Just an FYI per ESPN Boston:
But let’s examine those Patriots whom we would not expect to play because of recent injury issues: Wide receiver Danny Amendola Offensive lineman Marcus Cannon Defensive end Jermaine Cunningham Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard Defensive end Justin Francis Tight end Rob Gronkowski (on PUP)
From ESPN: “The New England Patriots have released polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tebow, who signed with the Patriots in June, struggled to find consistency throughout the preseason. He never seriously threatened Ryan Mallett for the backup job behind Tom Brady.”
The New England Patriots could care less...
The Patriots will release quarterback Tim Tebow on Saturday, FOX
Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo confirms.
What would happen if Tim Tebow didn’t make the Patriots roster? I can tell you, ESPN would blow up and it would be Tebow Time again, until he lands on a roster or retires. Well today Tebow was given a vote of confidence, not from his coach but the Patriots owner Robert Kraft. “I’m rooting […]
It is like Tebow has some sort of cult like hold over Robert Kraft.
“I’m rooting for him big time,” Kraft told reporters prior to the Patriots’ annual kickoff gala. “I’m in his corner, but I have the privilege of letting Bill make those decisions. He has a pretty good record doing it.”

Despite having both God and Patriots owner Robert Kraft lobbying for Tebow to make the final roster, common sense ruled as head...
Not like this was a surprise, but at least Kraft was rooting for him? Timmy Tebow has officially been released by the New England Patriots today.
Patriots released Tim Tebow.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock made an embarrassing blunder when he somehow mistakenly referred to New England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow as Peyton Manning during the fourth quarter of Thursday night's NFL preseason game in Foxboro.
It happened after Tebow underthrew a pass which was intercepted by the New York Giants. Mayock summed up the play as "a very...
Robert Kraft has learned not to meddle when it comes to roster decisions. But that doesn’t mean he won’t be lobbying Bill Belichick if there’s a player or two he’d like to see make the cut, such as a certain Tim Tebow.
Tebow’s time as a Patriot may be close to ending as New England trims its roster down to its final 53 players. While some people think Tebow has a future...
Can Kenbrell Thompkins parlay his preseason success into the regular season in 2013?
After embarrassing themselves with four turnovers in the first quarter last week against the Lions, the Patriots look to get back on track against their enemies in their preseason finale tonight at Gillette Stadium. While ball security was not an issue in 2012, this young offensive unit has one...
