Will Tebow follow advice, head to CFL?

It’s not getting any easier for Tim Tebow.

After being cut by the Patriots on Saturday and clearing waivers, Tebow got some advice from his former quarterback coach – but it probably isn’t what Tebow wants to hear.

"It's time now to maybe just reconsider a different path to his ultimate dream. Tim might want to look to the CFL because he may have run out of options in the NFL,'' Steve Clarkson told USA Today on Sunday. "Sitting is not an option for Tim. He's ultra-competitive. He needs to stick to his strength, which is being in a competitive environment.

"Anyone who wants to work on their craft the way Tim does, he just needs to give himself a couple of days and really decide, 'Is this what I want to do?' Clearly, football is still in his blood.''

Clarkson worked with Tebow on his mechanics in February. Tebow, 26, completed just 11 of 30 attempts for 145 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in the preseason.

Tebow played with the Jets last season, attempting just eight passes for 39 yards in 12 games.
