Earlier today, the New England Patriots released quarterback Tim Tebow, but it appears Tebow is holding no grudge, thanking the organization on Twitter this afternoon, complete with Bible scriptures
I would like to thank Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, Coach McDaniels and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity……to be a part of such a classy organization. I pray for nothing but the best for you all. I will remain in relentless pursuit…..of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback. 2 Corinthians 12:9: And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient……for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather……boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
Tebow was a long shot to make the roster in the first place, though, hung around until the final 53-man roster cut.
It seemed as if the Patriots had long decided Tebow would be a roster causality weeks ago, yet, he remained – either because they really did want to give him a true shot at the roster or because he was free publicity and thousands of jersey sales.
I’m going with the latter.
