FOXBOROUGH, Mass - Tebowmania is headed to New England.

Former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a two-year deal with the Patriots with no guaranteed money, according to the Associated Press. He was cut by New York around six weeks ago.

Tebow says he is excited to finally play for the team that beat him twice last season. "I'm looking forward to working hard every single day and getting a lot better," says Tebow.

Some Jets fans who watched Tebow falter last season say he has a good attitude, which will at least keep him confident as he tries to back up Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
