06:43 PM ET 05.31 | The New York Jets cut Tim Tebow in April, and the quarterback hasn't been able to find a job in the NFL since then. There is a sense now that he may well be finished. People close to Tebow have privately admitted that his pro career is likely over, according to David Fleming of ESPN The Magazine. If this is it for Tebow, it's an abrupt end for a player who became a national sensation while leading the Denver Broncos on a memorable run to the playoffs in 2011 that included a six-game winning streak. He ended up making 11 starts that season but struggled throwing the football, completing just 46.5 percent of his passes.

That's because he can't throw. Maybe he would've made it as a blocking fullback or tight end, but the fact remains that he's a lousy QB. Hines Ward changed positions when he got to the pros, & that got him pretty far!

Maybe it's time for Timmy to consider divinity school.

Tim is already very wealthy with Tebow jersey sales surpassing all others.
