It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
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 Mayhew did neither. It’s as though he had never thought about whether Tim Tebow could find a niche on the Lions.
In an interview with Detroit’s 97.1 The Ticket, Mayhew wouldn’t rule out pursuing Tebow.”I feel good about our quarterbacks right now,” Mayhew said. “We’ve got four on our roster and we typically go with four. But I’m the kind of guy who never says never.”
You hear that, Lions fans?
As of right now, Tebow is reportedly unwilling to change positions away from quarterback (despite toying around on the Jets’ special teams units). However, should Tebow agree to play tight end or running back or safety, I think Mayhew’s ears might perk.
The Lions don’t need a wrinkle. They don’t need a gimick. They have some of the most loyal fans in all of the National Football League.
But who knows, maybe Mayhew enjoys circus music. Because that is exactly what Tebow would bring.
BEST OF MAXIM
NOT GOOD ENOUGH, EH?
Warren Moon, who spent six seasons in the Canadian Football League, believes that Tim Tebow has no greater chance of success in that league than he does in the NFL.
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,"...
The Allen Event Center wasnt too small a stage for Terrell Owens. But what about Tim Tebow?
The quarterback, recently cut by the Jets, has been offered a contract by the Texas Revolution, according to The Dallas Morning News. The Texas Revolution is an arena football team that plays in the Dallas suburb of Allen.
We feel like Tim Tebow can give his testimony of his faith on family...
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.
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.

Today marks the official end of Tim Tebow’s run in New York. Tebow played 70
offensive snaps last season while making $4 million in total salary (or about $57 grand per snap), getting passed over for Greg Mcelroy after Mark Sanchez struggled late in the year. When the Jets made that call, they had no shot at the playoffs, several major contributors were injured (see: Santonio Holmes...
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...
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...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Heres the thing that doesnt make a shred of sense: Collin Klein is a smart guy. Surely, hes watched enough of Tim Tebow to know that this is not the path that lands you at Candy Castle in the end.
Surely, hes seen enough NFL games to know that quarterbacks whove been trained to run first, run second, and throw third usually wind up getting their knees bent like...
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...
