Even though he threw two touchdown passes in New England's final preseason game on Thursday, quarterback Tim Tebow's future with the Patriots remained tenuous on Friday.
When asked if he thought he had done enough to earn a roster spot, Tebow said: "I'm not sure. I don't make those decisions," CBSSports reported.
The Patriots cut 10 players on Friday and still must reduce their roster by 12 by Saturday's 6 p.m. ET deadline. And coach Bill Belichick is not saying much as he and his staff are studying film and considering who to keep and who to release
"I think whenever you put a roster together you look at it and say 'OK, we're a little heavy here and we're a little light here' relative to where your team has been in the past or maybe relative to what the norm is around the league," Belichick said in a conference call Friday.
Against the new York Giants on Thursday, Tebow was 6-for-11 for 91 yards, and he rushed for 30 yards. In addition to his two TD strikes, he was intercepted once and sacked four times.
Tebow said he will keep preparing as if he will be on the roster after final cuts are made Saturday.
"I'm just taking it one day at a time and be able to enjoy playing this game tonight and come in here ready to work out tomorrow," Tebow said.
If the Patriots decide to keep Tebow he will be relegated to third string behind starter Tom Brady and third-year backup Ryan Mallett, who was drafted in the third round in 2011 and has four pass attempts and one completion in his career.
