Despite being one of the most popular players in football, Tim Tebow remains unemployed.

The former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback signed with the New England Patriots over the NFL offseason with the hope of making the roster as a backup to Tom Brady. 

However, he was waived by the team prior to the start of the regular season, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter:

Patriots releases Tim Tebow. More on ESPN.

According to SportsCenter, he was not claimed by any team in the NFL:

QB Tim Tebow goes unclaimed on waivers and officially becomes a free agent.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated, via John Otano, reported that an organization approached Tebow about switching positions but he refused. 

On Oct. 20, a report surfaced that the Rams were interested in Tebow.
