It looks like the Tebow dominoes have started to fall.

Moments after it was reported that the Patriots would sign Tim Tebow, the team announced that it had released quarterback Mike Kafka.

Kafka gave the Patriots a little bit of experience at the quarterback position behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. The former fourth-rounder played in four games for the Eagles as a rookie in 2011. He was released prior to the 2012 season, and after spending a season out of the league, the Patriots signed him to a future contract in January.

The Patriots also released rookie defensive lineman Dewayne Cherrington on Monday. Cherrington was signed as a rookie free agent out of Mississippi State last month.
