Tim Tebow cut

I don't watch NFL. So I don't know much about him. But I read this ...
Timothy Richard "Tim" Tebow (/ˈtiːboʊ/; born August 14, 1987) is an American football quarterback of the National Football League (NFL) who is currently a free agent. He previously played quarterback for the New England Patriots, New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He played college football for the University of Florida, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and appearing on BCS National Championship-winning teams in the 2006 and 2008 seasons. Tebow was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

Tebow attended the University of Florida, where he played for the Florida Gators football team. Tebow became the Gators' starting quarterback during the 2007 season when he became the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy.[1] In 2008, Tebow led Florida to a 13–1 record and its second national championship in three years, and was named the offensive MVP of the national championship game. The Gators again went 13–1 in 2009, his senior year. At the conclusion of his college career, he held the Southeastern Conference's all-time records in both career passing efficiency and total rushing touchdowns, appearing second and tenth (respectively) in the NCAA record book in these categories.[2]

As a member of the Denver Broncos, he started the last three games of his rookie season and became the team's full-time starting quarterback beginning in the sixth game of 2011. The Broncos were 1–4 before he became the starter, but began winning with him on the field, often coming from behind late in the fourth quarter until they won their first AFC West title and first playoff game since 2005, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.[3] Tebow was traded to the New York Jets during the offseason after the Broncos acquired free agent quarterback Peyton Manning.[4] Tebow received little playing time for the Jets and on April 29, 2013, the Jets released Tebow after drafting quarterback Geno Smith.[5] He signed a two-year, non-guaranteed contract with New England on June 11, 2013 before being cut from the team on August 31, 2013.[6]

Tebow is largely known for his outspoken Christian faith as a professional athlete and his charitable work.
Ok...so what's wrong with him? Why was he traded? Was it this..

"I'm blessed, because of my faith, that I don't have to worry about the future because I know who holds my future,"
Or was it this...
The quarterback with two big problems — throwing the ball and reading defences — was cut by the New England Patriots less than 12 weeks after they signed him and just five days before the season.

How the hell did he win the Heisman with those poor QB traits? I wonder if the guy is a little too spiritual.
If his dream is to play in the NFL, I wonder if he'll try the CFL as a stepping stone.
It sounds to me like he needs a coach.
I wonder who has the rights to him?
Pain is inevitable...suffering is optional...
