Eagles Release QB Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow's dream of being an NFL quarterback has been taken away again, after the Philadelphia Eagles released him before the final roster deadline.

The 28-year-old was competing for the third-string quarterback job, but he didn't make the cut, reports ESPN.

All NFL teams must reduce their rosters to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday (September 5).

With Tebow out, the Eagles have just two quarterbacks on their current roster -- Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

Tebow has not appeared in an NFL regular-season game since December 2012.
