The New England Patriots have released quarterback Tim Tebow, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tebow, who signed with the Patriots in June, struggled to find consistency throughout the preseason. He never seriously threatened Ryan Mallett for the backup job behind Tom Brady.
The third-string quarterback completed 6 of 11 passes for 91 yards with two touchdowns Thursday night, one interception and four sacks in a 28-20 win over the New York Giants.
Other veterans cut were defensive end Marcus Benard, wide receiver Johnathan Haggerty and linebacker Mike Rivera.
