Philadelphia Eagles Sour On Tebow, Drop Him From Roster

Quarterback Tim Tebow of the Philadelphia Eagles warms up on the sidelines against the New York Jets on Sept. 3, 2015 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The team cut Tebow from its roster two days later.

The Philadelphia Eagles are a no-go on Tim Tebow.

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news in a tweet Saturday morning, putting an end to speculation the on-again-off-again quarterback had secured a third-string spot on the team's roster.

In his final preseason game with the team, Tebow outplayed fellow third-string contender Matt Barkley, notes SB Nation. Apparently the effort wasn't enough to save either player; Barkley has since been traded to the Arizona Cardinals.

USA Today blames the cut on Tebow's inconsistent performance in the preseason, despite his much-ballyhooed reworked throwing motion.

The former Heisman Trophy winner and 2010 first-round draft pick last appeared on an NFL roster in 2013, when the Patriots signed, then cut him -- also in the preseason. 

Last year, he started working as an analyst for ESPN while continuing to train for the NFL.
