Tim Tebow released by New York Jets

April 30th, 2013

Tim Tebow has been released by the New York Jets after an poor first season.

The 25-year-old quarterback, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 was initially a cult figure with the Denver Broncos. Tebow became widely known – and impersonated – for his ‘Tebow Time’ touchdown celebrations, going down on one knee in prayer to celebrate touchdowns, joined the Jets 13 months ago.

Struggling badly, Tebow attempted only eight passes after his surprise trade from the Broncos in March 2012, throwing for only 39 yards, and rushed 32 times for 102 yards.

News of his departure had long been anticipated and became inevitable when the Jets selected former West Virginia star Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday.
