Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Tim Tebow is out of the National Football League, but that doesn't mean the quarterback will be retiring just yet.

According to private football coach Steve Clarkson, Tebow should consider "a different path" if he ever hopes to pay in the NFL again.

“It’s time now to maybe just reconsider a different path to his ultimate dream,” Clarkson told USA Today. “Tim might want to look to the CFL because he may have run out of options in the NFL."

The Florida native was left out of the NFL Saturday. The New England Patriots cut Tebow, and no other team was interested in bringing him in. In his goodbye message, the 26-year old quarterback vowed to continue "in [his] lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."

“Sitting is not an option for Tim," Clarkson added. "He’s ultra-competitive. He needs to stick to his strength, which is being in a competitive environment. … Clearly, football is still in his blood.”

The Montreal Alouettes currently own Tebow’s rights in the CFL but that doesn't mean they will make a run at the quarterback any time soon.

“The list changes daily,” Alouettes general manager Jim Popp told the New York Times in April. “I can take him off tomorrow, though, and some other team can put him right back on.”
