Tim Tebow Is About to Sign With the New England Patriots

Tim Tebow, the Heisman Trophy-winning, God-loving quarterback who last year inflicted pain and harm on New Yorkers everywhere when he joined the Jets, will apparently do the same thing to Bostonians this fall as a member of the New England Patriots.

Sources told ESPN on Monday that the 25-year-old is expected to report to the team’s minicamp later today, and will be competing with Ryan Mallett to become backup quarterback for Tom Brady.

If confirmed, Tebow will be reunited with Josh McDaniels, who coached Tebow’s highly publicized stint with the Denver Broncos. (McDaniels is now the Patriots’ offensive coordinator.)

Tebow was cut from the Jets in April after a stint that resulted in 72 offensive snaps and a whole bunch of headaches for twentysomething gay writers who just don’t give a s*** about New York-related sports.

UPDATE: It’s official, says Twitter:
