Tim Tebow is reportedly a New England Patriot. 

ESPN's Ed Werder broke the news:

Go ahead and let that sink in for a little bit.

There had been endless speculation as to where Tebow, the most polarizing quarterback on the planet, would sign after the New York Jets released him. Would it be with the Arena Football League? The Canadian Football League? The Lingerie Football League?

Ultimately, it was none of the above. Instead, it would be with Bill Belichick and the Patriots, one of the most successful teams since the turn of the century. 

Tebow plus the Patriots equals the perfect storm for a near detonation of the Internet, and unsurprisingly, Twitter turned chaotic with the news. 

ESPN's SportsNation started it off by giving us the first peek at what Tebow will look like in a Pats uniform:

NFL Network's Albert Breer provided some details concerning New England's thought process in signing the popular QB:

As far as Tebow's role with the team, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller was hoping for a position switch in New England:

But even with zero-percent chance (is there anything less than zero?) of a quarterback controversy, Werder (via Rotoworld's Evan Silva) reported that the Patriots have no intention of changing Tebow's position:

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirmed that belief:

Still, as Rich Eisen pointed out, even if Tebow is technically a quarterback, you can bet Belichick and Co. will find a variety of ways to use utilize his unique and valuable skill set:

Eisen also called New England the "perfect spot" for Tebow:

Now for the "How much do I need to pay to make these things happen?" section.

Yes, please.

Second, Roc Nation Sports' next client (via Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch):

Yes, please, times two.

Finally, a reminder to stay far away from Skip Bayless and First Take for a very long time:
