Over the weekend, the New England Patriots ended the Tim Tebow era when they cut the four year veteran out of Florida, deciding to keep only two quarterbacks on their roster.  Upon his release, Tebow said that he would continue to pursue his dream of being an NFL quarterback.  With that said, here are five teams that could potentially use his services:Buffalo BillsIn their third preseason game against the Washington Redskins, the Bills were running the read-option with Kevin Kolb at quarterback who is not exactly known for his athleticism.  As we know, Kolb suffered a concussion in that game and with his history of sustaining head injuries, the Bills cannot count on him to return. When rookie E.J. Manuel is back he will be the starter, but anytime you run an offense in the NFL, when the quarterback is a primary runner, there will always be the threat of an injury looming.  Should Manuel get hurt again, Tebow could slide right in and take over.  Put him in shotgun with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson and the Bills could have a dynamic running offense which would also have the added benefit of keeping their suspect defense off of the field as much as possible.Jacksonville JaguarsIf nothing else, Tebow would sell tickets and jerseys and give some excitement to a franchise desperately in need of some energy.  Anywhere Tebow goes will turn into a media circus which is the last thing that third year quarterback Blaine Gabbert needs, but why let that get in the way of revenue, right? Minnesota VikingsI can envision Tebow in the shotgun with Adrian Peterson next to him quite easily and it's not exactly like Christian Ponder is making us conjure up images of a young Peyton Manning when it comes to the passing game.  Plus, playing indoors will make Tebow's ducks, I mean throws, look better. San Francisco 49ersWith the wide receiver position being extremely thin in San Francisco, it will be "ground and pound" for the Niners, a perfect fit for Tebow.  Plus, unlike Rex Ryan, Jim Harbaugh knows how to be creative on offense and put Tebow in situations where he can succeed.  Like in Buffalo, Tebow could slide in should something happen to Colin Kaepernick.Carolina PanthersAgain, with the Panthers running the read-option, Tebow would serve as a nice backup for Cam Newton and there would be no quarterback controversy even if Tebow plays well; this is Cam's team.  Tim Tebow will never be a long-term solution for any team at quarterback as he does not throw the ball consistently enough.  However, he could be an effective backup when thrust into the right situation.
