I would be surprised if he isn't a backup on some team this year. He simply isn't going to get the same money he had with the Jets. I know everyone says he could play other positions, but I just don't see it. FB maybe, but can be block? Can he catch and be a TE? These are not skills he got in college, so I find it hard to believe he would be NFL quality. He is an ok backup QB for when your primary goes down for a few games. Get him cheap enough and I feel it can fit that role. The baggage that comes along with him might be too much though. I know I certainly wouldn't want fans questioning when he will play every bad week.

It's up to him if he will take less money and settle for a backup or rare situation role.

I've read multiple articles with a total of about half a dozen GM's saying they have no interest in him. He's not a good enough player at any position to have the circus that comes with him.

I'd say the chances are more likely that very few, if any GM's are interested in him and unless there is a pre-season injury, he will not be in the NFL this year.

We'll see...

There are 32 GMs. The fact that 6 of them have gone on record saying they don't want him doesn't mean that some number of the other 26 haven't kicked the tires, possibly asking him to change positions in the process.

It all comes down to your opinion/perception of how NFL GMs perceive Tebow. I think he was successful enough in his brief starting stint with the Broncos in 2011 for someone to be interested. The Jets certainly fucked him over though, that's for sure.

The J-E-T-S kicked him to the curb - what a classless and clueless organization. Waited until all likely QB slots drafted up and then dumped him. Just sick, with their arrogant coach, know nothing GM and useless owner falling all over themselves to sign The Sanchise to an extension so he could stink up all of New Jersey and then tempting Tebow to come to town so they could shit on him. Really poor...

The Jets have now replaced the Steelers as the team I most hate, and I never cared one way or another about Tim Tebow, previously.

Their explanation was that they didn't want to release him before the draft because they were hoping to get an offer of a pick for him. In my opinion, the fact that no one would even offer a 7th round pick means that it makes no difference one way or the other, no one wanted the guy regardless. His situation would be unchanged no matter when he was released.

I respectfully disagree with that, it may just mean that nobody wanted to use that pick on a QB whose weaknesses are already known to compete for a third-stringers spot when you might be able to use that pick on a guy to compete for a third-stringers spot who may surprise you. Perhaps there would have been a team that said, "We don't want to use a pick to get another quarterback for spring training, but if we must use a pick, we'll use it on someone else...or maybe someone with the potential to start for this team in the future." Had Tebow been released earlier, then a team may have just picked him up and used that 7th Round Pick (or whatever pick with which they ultimately took a QB) to draft someone of a different position.

I understand, but that team can still sign Tebow as a FA. Holding on to him until now was the only way the Jets could have received any value at all. And it's not like the rest of the NFL didn't know he was going to be available. The Jets put the word out. No one wanted him enough to compete with another team for him, is what it meant. Because that is why you would trade a pick, even a low one.

With no draft day trade and them just releasing him, it shows he has almost no value. His skills minus the circus atmoshphere he brings with him are not worth even a late round pick. He may or may not ( I would say not) get picked up during training camp, but even if he does nobody is going to invest much into him. He can't pass and it's only a matter of time before a linebacker blows him up while he's running and ends his season.

There's value and then there's price. A QB with a proven record and some actual NFL experience is ahrdly without value. But Tebow's price may be too high for his record. Fairly or not, QBs are judged almost entirely on their passing numbers. Tebow's are mediocre at best.
