FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - (AP) Tim Tebow finally has a new team.

The New England Patriots announced the signing of the former Jets quarterback on Tuesday, six weeks after he was cut by New York.

Two people with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Tebow was signed for two years with no guaranteed money. One person says he will make the veteran's minimum salary, with incentives.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because terms of the deals had not been announced.

ESPN first reported terms of the signing.

The deal comes just in time for the start of the three-day Patriots minicamp that runs through Thursday.
