NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s been a rough week for Tim Tebow.
After all the hubbub this season, Tebow was passed over for the Jets’ starting job on Tuesday. Now he reportedly wants out.
And then there’s this: according to Us Weekly, the chaste quarterback and actress Camilla Belle — gasp! — have split up.
“It just didn’t work out,” a source told the publication.
Tebow had reportedly introduced Belle to his parents, who gave their approval of the 26-year-old beauty. The couple even attended church together, according to the New York Post.
But like his career with the Jets, it went from sizzle to fizzle.
The Jets finally took the starting job away from Mark Sanchez after his implosion in Monday night’s debacle. But Tebow, the former first-round pick, wasn’t given the gig. It went instead to 2011 seventh-round selection Greg McElroy.
Yep, the opportunity Tebow waited all season for was handed to the team’s third-stringer. And he wasn’t happy about it.
“All you can ask for and all you want is a chance,” Tebow said Wednesday. “A chance to go out there and play the game you love, and help this team win football games. That’s all I wanted.”
So much for Tebow Time.
Looks like it’s back to playing the field.
Here’s the big question: Do you care? Sound off in the comments…
