Patriots Make Cuts – Tim Tebow Still On The Roster (For Now)
The New England Patriots have made their final two cuts to get down to the league-mandated 75-man roster and quarterback Tim Tebow is still a member of the team.
In a release, the team announced that it had released tight end Evan Landi and defensive lineman Anthony Rashad White.
The move ensures that Tebow, who has struggled this preseason, will remain on the roster until at least the final preseason game against the New York Giants in Foxborough on Aug. 28. Tebow has struggled in the preseason, completing just 5 of his 19 pass attempts for 54 yards in two games, though he has rushed for 61 yards on 10 attempts. He did not see any action in the team’s last preseason game at Detroit.
Tebow’s reprieve could end up to be short-lived, however. All NFL teams must reduce their rosters to 53 players by 6 p.m. on Aug. 31.
