By the end of the 2012-13 season, he had participated in only 72 offensive snaps with the New York team.
In late April 2013, it was announced that the New York Jets had released Tebow. The team had reportedly not been able to find a trade partner for Tebow from the time the season ended until he was released in the early spring.
Apart from his skills on the field, Tim Tebow is known for his devotion to his Christian beliefs and his charity work. The former is displayed often on the field with what has become known as "Tebowing"—dropping to one knee in prayer with his head resting on one hand. The move is both widely imitated by Tebow fans and widely mocked by others. Whatever the intent behind the fad, Tebowing became a cultural phenomenon in the 2011 football season.
While active in charity work even in college, Tim Tebow founded the Tim Tebow Foundation in January 2010. The faith-based outreach group works with children in need in both the United States and the Philippines, building facilities for sick children, granting wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses and building playrooms in hospitals and orphanages, among other far-reaching charitable works.
