Much to the dismay of Tebowmaniacs everywhere, the New England Patriots cut ties with the controversial quarterback on Saturday as they made the cut down to their final 53-man roster. While Tebow is now left searching for a new job, the media decided to ask Patriots head coach Bill Belichick whether or not he would consider bringing back Tebow down the line.

In typical Belichick fashion, he tip-toed around the question and would not rule out the possibility.

From Sports Illustrated:

Belichick says he can’t predict the future. But when asked if there was any chance Tebow could be back, the coach said that it’s quite common for players who were in training camp to be brought during the season.

The Patriots have only two quarterbacks on the active roster. If starter Tom Brady or backup Ryan Mallett are injured, they would need another.

If the Patriots were to watch Tom Brady go down to an injury, they would have a much bigger problem on their hands than whether or not they would bring back an incapable signal-caller. However, Tebow did study the system, so he would have the advantage over a number of players on the open market.

For Patriots fans, that would be a disaster.

They were happy to finally watch the Tebow circus leave town, and bringing him back for an encore performance would just ruin their appetites and leave them praying for a Matt Cassel return.
