Miracle Worker Tim Tebow, whose much-hyped trade to the New York Jets resulted in just 72 offensive snaps, was officially cut from the team’s roster on Monday, head coach Rex Ryan confirmed in an “Ugh, let’s pretend this never happened” statement.
“We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow,” Ryan said Monday. “Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward.”
The writing had apparently been on the wall ever since the Jets drafted West Virginia’s Geno Smith last week.
As for what will happen to Tebow, who somehow managed to take the Denver Broncos to the playoffs in 2012, some say he’ll have to switch positions completely if he wants to have a future in the NFL.
If that doesn’t work out, there’s always Dancing With the Stars.
