Tim Tebow is done with the New England Patriots. The next question is whether his NFL career is over, too.

A person familiar with move confirmed the Patriots waived Tebow on Saturday morning. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team had yet to announce its cuts.

ESPN first reported the news.

Tebow, 26, signed a two-year contract with the Patriots in June that included no guarantees. In three preseason appearances, he was 11-of-30 passing for 145 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Patriots have carried only two quarterbacks in recent years, and they already have Ryan Mallett backing up Tom Brady.

Tebow is subject to waivers.

Tebow admitted he wasn't sure if he'd done enough to stick Thursday night.

"Go to sleep when I get home, wake up, come work out, watch the film," he answered regarding his immediate plans. "See what I did good, see what I did bad, try to learn from it and get better."
