According to NFL.com's Mike Silver, the Rams have at least internally discussed the possibility of signing free agent QB Tim Tebow.

This isn't the first time we've heard of a link between the Rams and Tebow. And now that Sam Bradford (knee) is down for possibly a significant amount of time, the rumors are heating back up. The only other quarterback on the Rams' roster is Kellen Clemens, someone Tebow could conceivably start over. Silver said Sunday night that he doesn't expect a signing to happen, but it's a story to monitor for more than just a tabloid story. Tebow's legs make him a better fantasy quarterback than real-life signal-caller.

SI's Peter King reported on NBC's 2013 NFL Kickoff that free agent Tim Tebow received an "inquiry" from an undisclosed team this week about playing a position other than quarterback.

He turned it down. Per King, Tebow "wants to keep the NFL dream alive," but only as a quarterback. We firmly believe he exhausted all NFL quarterback opportunities when the Patriots dumped Tebow at final cuts. Somewhat interestingly, King reported USA Rugby approached Tebow about changing sports. Again, no dice. There is no question Tebow would be given another shot were he willing to try tight end or H-back. He is simply not open to it.

Free agent Tim Tebow has not been in contact with the CFL.

The Montreal Alouettes hold Tebow's CFL rights. "Really nothing to discuss unless he came to the CFL," said GM Jim Popp. "Have never had a conversation with him or his agent." Tebow has never shown any interest in proving he can play the quarterback position by earning a starting job up north. Perhaps he'll change his mind if he remains without a job for the entire 2013 season.

Tim Tebow has cleared waivers and is now a free agent.

Having likely exhausted his final shot with old pal Josh McDaniels, Tebow's NFL future looks bleaker than ever. He turned 26 years old last month. To get another chance, Tebow is going to have to be amenable to a position change.

WGR 550 Buffalo reports the Bills have "zero interest" in free agent Tim Tebow.

The Tebow-Bills connection made some sense. Buffalo only has two quarterbacks on the roster -- both are rookies and one is injured -- and the Bills play the Patriots in Week 1. Tebow is subject to waivers. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora confirms the Bills haven't placed a claim on either Tebow or injured ex-Jets QB Greg McElroy. Buffalo will likely add a quarterback somehow.

Montreal Alouettes GM Jim Popp says he's never had a conversation with free agent Tim Tebow or his agent about joining the team.

"[Tebow is] just one of the 35 names on the [negotiation] list," said Popp. "Really nothing to discuss unless he came to the CFL. Have never had a conversation with him or his agent." The Alouettes hold Tebow's rights should he head north to the CFL. We can't see him playing in the NFL this season.

Patriots released QB Tim Tebow.

No. 3 Patriots QB Tim Tebow didn't play in Thursday's regular season dress rehearsal.

The Pats held Brian Hoyer out of last year's third preseason game before sending him packing at final cuts. Looking for patterns with iconoclastic coach Bill Belichick usually doesn't get you far, but Tebow's roster spot is certainly on thin ice.

ESPN's Adam Schefter suggests that Tim Tebow's roster spot could depend on whether Rob Gronkowski (back) lands on reserve/PUP.

If the Patriots place Gronkowski on the regular season PUP list, he won't count against the 53-man active roster for at least the first six weeks. That would give them some flexibility to keep a third quarterback like Tebow. Regardless, we suspect the roster spot would be better used on someone else. Through two preseason games, Tebow has gone 5-of-19 (26.3 percent) for 54 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. He can't run New England's offense and isn't working at any other positions.

Coach Bill Belichick said there's a "lot of competition out there" when asked about Tim Tebow's roster spot.

Tebow got plenty of reps behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett in last week's preseason opener. He finished 4-of-12 for 55 yards, rushed four times for 31 yards and took three sacks that resulted in negative-23 yards. In other words, he's shown little progress as a passer. The Patriots have to decide if it's worth keeping Tebow as a developmental third quarterback -- they aren't using him at any other positions.
