Sadly, the Philadelphia Eagles cut quarterback Tim Tebow. They needed to make a decision this weekend, and on Saturday he was removed from their 53-player roster.
This seems to bring an end to the outspoken Christian Tim Tebow’s football career, who became famous for his athletic skills and powerful message of Jesus Christ. In addition, he has touched the lives of thousands of young Americans through his charity work.
The decision was unexpected and sudden. But instead of lashing out in anger, Tebow responded in a way that is 100% classy.
Here is what Tebow posted on Twitter, which is going viral!

The Bible verse from Romans he cited reads, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Tebow had a strong showing in preseason play, where he scored two touchdowns against his former team. He left the decision to God.:
Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes against his former team in a strong effort to make his new team’s 53-man roster.
Tebow, whose NFL career stalled after playing for the New York Jets in 2012, is competing with Matt Barkley for the Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 3 quarterback job.
“I’m not going to worry about what I can’t control,” Tebow said after the game. “It’s a blessing being able to come out here and play this game that I love. It was a lot of fun out there tonight. It was a blast.”
Tim Tebow is showing us all how to live like a real Christian. It’s a sport he loves, and he has used his God-given talents to become this successful. He is a role model to millions of young men, and should set an example for every NFL player, at a time when the league needs one.
He will likely return to broadcasting and his incredible charity work.
