“Should New England place Gronkowski on the PUP list, it would give the Patriots additional roster flexibility that could mean carrying a third quarterback,” writes Schefter.
However, should Gronkowski be healthy enough to not be placed on the PUP list, Tebow would be a likely roster cut. As things stand right now, Tebow appears to be the “wrong side” of the roster bubble.
