PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Two people familiar with the move say the Philadelphia Eagles have released Tim Tebow.

Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't announced the decision. The NFL's roster deadline is Saturday afternoon.

Tebow had seemingly won the No. 3 quarterback job when Philadelphia traded Matt Barkley to Arizona on Friday. But coach Chip Kelly cut Tebow following his best preseason performance at the New York Jets on Thursday night.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner was trying to return to the NFL after missing two seasons.
