Tim Tebow is officially a member of the New England Patriots. The Patriots announced Tuesday morning that the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback out of Florida has signed with the team, although contract terms were not disclosed. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that it's a two-year contract with no guaranteed money. In just three NFL seasons, Tebow has become one of the most popular yet polarizing players in league history. His quarterbacking skills at the pro level have always been debatable, yet he had a run of success in his two years with the Denver Broncos that included a playoff victory.

It's a good thing Tim Tebow didn't agree to a season in the arena leagues. Tebow will sign with the New England Patriots just in time for Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, ESPN is reporting. He will reunite with Patriots offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels, who was the coach of the Denver Broncos when the team traded up to select Tebow with the 25th pick in the 2010 NFL draft. When the New York Jets traded a fourth- and sixth-round pick for Tebow last season, it created a quarterback controversy that loomed over the team throughout the season as starting quarterback Mark Sanchez struggled.

The comparisons between Kansas State's Collin Klein, a Heisman Trophy candidate, and former Florida star Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman in 2007, are not lost on people. Both are big, physical, run-first quarterbacks who aren't the prettiest of passers. The are also humble, straight-laced Christian fellows who are known as fierce competitors. Their statistics may end up being similar, too. In 13 games during his Heisman-winning season, Tebow passed for 3,286 yards and 32 touchdowns with six interceptions, completing 66.9% of his throws.

The Denver Broncos have traded quarterback Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, according to multiple reports, a move that isn't stunning in that it comes a day after Denver signed Peyton Manning. The acquisition of Tebow also comes after the Jets extended the contract of quarterback Mark Sanchez. According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets will send a fourth-round draft pick to the Broncos for Tebow. In a news conference Tuesday to introduce new quarterback Manning, Broncos executive John Elway praised Tebow but added: “I think with the opportunity to have Peyton Manning's services, we had to take advantage of that.

Has Tim Tebow come to the conclusion that his NFL days are over? There were conflicting reports Friday about the feelings of the quarterback's inner circle, with ESPN magazine's David Fleming reporting that members of Tebow's camp are “privately admitting that the NFL run is probably over,” and a source close to Tebow telling NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, “It's not true.” Regardless, the New York Jets parted ways with Tebow last month, and...

Tim Tebow didn't do anything. Why should he be mocked? Actually, that's exactly why the New York Jets quarterback is being mocked in a display at a West Nyack, N.Y., Dick's Sporting Goods -- he did nothing, or close to it, all year. In photos tweeted this week by ESPN's Scott Hochenberg, the store has mannequins wearing the jerseys of various Jets and New York Giants players standing tall and proud -- all except the one wearing Tebow's No. 15. That poor guy is sitting by himself on a bench.

This week's Friday edition of our NFL Google+ hangout -- "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam," starring Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and Mark Thompson of "Mark and Brian" radio fame -- will start at 11:30 a.m. today and cover a host of topics. One topic could include the fast decline of Tim Tebow. As Farmer wrote earlier this week , "For a guy who can find the good in just about anything, even Tim Tebow is having problems putting a positive spin on what's gone on with the New York Jets this season.

Tim Tebow keeps ticking off those New York rites of passage, and Monday's Costume Institute Gala held at Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art was the latest. The newly crowned New York Jet caused quite the stir in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo (talk about All-American), distracting red carpet beauties, journalists and designers. "I'm just so blessed to be here," Tebow told Vogue magazine's William Norwich on the red carpet. The bespectacled writer quizzed the football star as to whether he prayed before arriving at the fete, which drew attendees like Cate Blanchett, Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen, Rihanna and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift shared a meal together Monday, so clearly they're in a super serious relationship. On the real, whether the pair have a star-studded romance (?), friendship (?) or business partnership (?) has become an enigma, a viral comet of Internet lore. Since they've remained mum about their rapport, we can only speculate which of the country singer's songs best describes her relationship with the Denver Broncos quarterback. Here are a few options... "Love Story" (If you've been to a wedding recently, you've heard it.)

Many say Tim Tebow doesn't possess the skills to be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL. Tebow is tremendously skilled, however, in answering critics. And the critics are not letting up. Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, who hosts a morning New York radio show, is the latest to bash the former Heisman Trophy winner, and Esiason's opinion continues to reverberate via the New York airwaves. “If I were the Jets . . . I would cut Tim Tebow, I really would,” the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback said during his show.
