Tim Tebow‘s time with the Patriots came to an end on Saturday afternoon when the team announced they had released the quarterback. Throughout an up-and-down preseason, Tebow seemed to be making strides with the Patriots offense, but the improvements he made ultimately weren’t enough as he was let go by his third team in 18 months. His play on the field may have been inconsistent, but Tebow’s positive attitude and bright outlook never wavered during his stint with the Pats, and being cut wasn’t going to change that aspect of the former Heisman Trophy winner. Tebow took to Twitter after the news broke, and expressed nothing but gratitude and appreciation to the organization and people who took a chance on him. He also guaranteed that this setback wouldn’t deter him from continuing his dream of becoming a quarterback in the NFL. I would like to thank Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, Coach McDaniels and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity...— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013 ...to be a part of such a classy organization. I pray for nothing but the best for you all. I will remain in relentless pursuit...— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013 ...of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback. 2 Corinthians 12:9: And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient...— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013 ...for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather...— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013 ...boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.— Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) August 31, 2013
