Quarterback Tim Tebow currently has no NFL team, and he can sign a contract with any of them.
A move isn’t likely in the immediate future. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Tebow will remain unattached until, at the earliest, after rookie minicamps are conducted.
In theory, a team that has signed an undrafted quarterback could decide after the minicamp that the player doesn’t have what it takes to at least be a camp arm. Which could open the door for Tebow.
The bigger question is whether a team would be willing to welcome Tebowmania to town if he’s merely going to be battling for a spot at the bottom of the depth chart. Still, given the trend toward mobile quarterbacks, having Tebow on a team makes sense; Redskins backup Pat White hasn’t played in the NFL since Tebow was drafted.
But Tebow remains a victim of his own popularity. And, in a roundabout way, of his own nature. By not launching a public campaign aimed at getting himself cut in early March, Tebow remained the property of the Jets through free agency, the draft, and the post-draft land rush for undrafted players.
Handcuffed by his image, Tebow couldn’t try to talk his way out of town. Thus, the Jets squatted on him, and now his options are limited.
“Limited” may be an overstatement. No team seems to be interested in giving him a chance to continue playing quarterback.
