Tebow was reportedly signed by the New England Patriots, and was expected to join the team for minicamp Tuesday in Foxborough, Mass. Financial terms and contract length were not revealed.
New England already has a full-time quarterback in Tom Brady, and a reliable backup in Ryan Mallett, so it's likely Tebow will still need to fight for a spot on the roster.
