Contrary to beliefs, quarterback Tim Tebow's NFL career is not yet over as he reportedly agreed to terms with the New England Patriots.
According to a source, Tebow will be at the Patriots' minicamp this week to complete the deal, details of which are not yet known.
Preparatory to Tebow's entry, the Patriots released quarterback Mike Kafka and defensive lineman Dewayne Cherrington. Kafka was the third quarterback on the depth chart behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett.
The move will reunite Tebow with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was the head coach of the Denver Broncos when they drafted the quarterback in the first round in 2010.
The Broncos traded picks in the second, third and fourth round to select Tebow in the first round of that draft.
A Heisman trophy winner at Florida, Tebow saw limited action during his rookie year but took the starting job from Kyle Orton and went 8-5 down the stretch, including a playoff victory against the Steelers.
In three career seasons, Tebow is 8-6 in the regular season and 1-1 in the playoffs. He has completed 173-of-361 passes (47.9 percent) for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 35 career games.
Last season, the Jets signed Tebow to back up Mark Sanchez but saw limited action as signal-caller before he was released in late April.
