Our quarterback, which art in New York ... Tim Tebow be thy name ... YOU'RE FIRED!!!
Tebow will no longer have the opportunity to deliver the New York Jets from evil, 'cause the team cut his ass ... just days after drafting another QB with a more fluid throwing motion (Geno Smith).
Jets coach Rex Ryan said in a release today, "We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow. Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward."
The Jets acquired Tebow last year in a trade, but he threw only eight passes this past season. The move cost the Jets over $4 million.
A 26-year-old Pennsylvania man just pled guilty to trying to extort former NFL star Hines Ward ... but TMZ has learned, he won't get any jail time.
Josh Van Auker pled guilty today to first degree misdemeanor attempted extortion ... after allegedly threatening to release evidence that the former Pittsburgh Steelers superstar paid women for sex. Van Auker allegedly demanded $15,000 for his silence.

NFL draft favorite Jarvis "Dawg Bones" Jones is getting better footlong treatment than Jenna Jameson ... because TMZ has learned, Subway is giving him free sandwiches ... FOR LIFE!
Jarvis -- a projected 1st-rounder in tomorrow's NFL Draft -- just signed a tasty 6-figure endorsement deal with Subway ... that included the elusive Subway Black Card, which can be used to purchase all the sandwiches the holder wants, and never expires.
Jones -- a 6'3," 241-pound linebacker out of Georgia -- joins a pretty exclusive group of black card holders, which includes Michael Strahan and Robert Griffin III.
According to the experts, Jarvis will probably be selected within the first 10 picks of tomorrow's draft -- and will become an instant millionaire.
Just days after his DUI arrest, Al Michaels ventured back out to Hollywood to another fancy restaurant ... but instead of hiring a driver, he decided to take the wheel himself.
TMZ was outside of Toscana restaurant in Brentwood last night when Michaels -- along with his wife -- rolled up in the same black Mercedes-Benz he was driving the night of his arrest.
We broke the story ... Michaels was popped for drunk driving in Santa Monica on Friday after making an illegal U-turn in front of cops. Sources tell us his blood alcohol level was JUUUST above the legal limit.
It's unclear why Al didn't just download the Uber app and get himself a driver last night -- but it's possible he simply didn't booze.
Terrell Owens has no one to blame but himself for losing a fortune ... so says his financial guy.
Owens has sued Jeff Rubin, Edward Rappaport and Pro Sports Financial, claiming they grossly mismanaged his stash ... opening a bank account without his knowledge and then forging his signature, and leading him to really bad investments, including a failed Alabama casino.
Rubin is now firing back ... claiming T.O. was fully aware of everything ... and down with it all. Rubin thinks Terrell is a cry baby who just can't accept the fact that sometimes investments go South.
In a final scold, Rubin snarks ... T.O. was asleep at the wheel by not taking the time to understand what he was getting into and the risks he was taking.
Al Michaels -- perhaps the most well-known sportscaster in the world -- was arrested Friday night for suspicion of DUI ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Michaels went through a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica at approximately 10:00 PM on Friday and when he spoke to officers, they detected an odor of alcohol.
We're told he was pulled over and given a field sobriety and after performing poorly, he was placed under arrest. Michaels was released from jail at 4:15 AM on Saturday on his own recognizance.
According to our sources, Michaels blood alcohol level was right at the legal limit -- he blew a .08 and a .09 in two breathalyzer tests.
Our sources say Michaels could not have been nicer throughout the ordeal.
Michaels was the play-by-play man for "Monday Night Football" for 20 years before moving over to "Sunday Night Football." He's also done baseball and basketball ... but is best known for his call of the legendary "Miracle on Ice" hockey game at the 1980 Winter Olympics.
