INDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots released wide receiver Tiquan Underwood less than 24 hours before Super Bowl XLVI. Underwood's agent, Ethan Lock, told NESN.com the Patriots did not give him an explanation for why Underwood was cut. Defensive end Alex Silvestro was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. Underwood, who was at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday for the team photo, shaved the Patriots' "Flying Elvis" logo into his high-top fade before traveling to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl.

  • The Truth is this was a classless act. You have a man on your team all season and all week at with the team at the Super Bowl and then the day before the super bowl you cut him? This just shows who the Patriots really are.

    The Truth about Tim Tebow:

    Let me say I am sick of Tim Tebow he is a subpar quarterback who has been give a lot of undeserving praise because of his religion. Really you could take any running back and put him at quarterback and have the same numbers as Tebow. The Dolphins did it with their running back they just called it the wildcat. Their running back and Tebow throw passes with about the same success. Lastly let me tell you clearly The Truth. If Tim Tebow was a Muslim they would not have him on TV kneeling to pray or interview him after the games and have hime praising Allah !!! They would have told him he could not bring his religion into professional sports and made sure he got no national coverage promoting his religion. They also would have said he was not an NFL caliber quarteback and the fans would have insisted he be benched. The Truth is if Tim Tebow was any other religion no one would have heard of Tim Tebow this is a predjudice country and the Christians have made Tebow a star because of being Christian not because of his quarterback skills if he were Muslim they would not even play him and that is The Truth !!!
