After a restless night, hundreds of NFL players nervously checked their cellphones Saturday morning, cringing every time it buzzed.
Tim Tebow was among those who got the dreaded call telling him to come see the coach and bring in his playbook.
Teams had to whittle their rosters to the 53-man maximum Saturday, and although his release wasn't a big surprise, Tebow was by far the biggest name among the notable cuts.
After being let go by his third team in 18 months — and with the season just five days away — the quarterback's chances of immediately catching on with another team seem slim.
Undaunted, Tebow tweeted, "I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."
