Tebowmania has been put on hold. Maybe permanently.

The Former Florida quarterback was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, according to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter. NFL teams are required to trim down their rosters to 53 men on Saturday, and Tebow did not make the cut.

It was a highly anticipated return, as the Eagles signed Tim Tebow in April. The thought was that if anyone could hone in on Tebow’s talent that it would be offensive mastermind Chip Kelly. Philly traded quarterback Matt Barkley to the Cardinals on Friday, according to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal—only adding the thought that Tebow would make the roster.

But it seems that the Eagles will go with just two quarterbacks in Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez. It’s been a tough road for Tebow in the NFL, and the future just got a dimmer for the former Heisman winner.

Have we seen the last of Tebow in the NFL?
