TEBOW FINDS TEAM: Tim Tebow may still have a future in the NFL after all.

The New England Patriots seem to think so and plan to sign him today if he passes a physical.

He won't be a starting quarterback, of course, with Tom Brady on hand in Foxborough. But certainly he's an intriguing reclamation project — yet another chance for coach Bill Belichick to torture the New York Jets, who failed to find a role for Tebow last season.

And that could make for quite a Boston Tea-bow Party.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that Tebow will join the Patriots' minicamp on Tuesday and sign with the team, pending the medical exam. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. Even when Tebow signs, there is no guarantee he will play for the Patriots.

BEARS SIGN 3, WAIVE FULL BACK: The Bears have waived fullback Evan Rodriguez after he was charged with driving under the influence last month.

The Bears also waived wide receivers Demetrius Fields and Dale Moss on Monday. They signed wide receivers Devin Aromashodu and Jerrell Jackson and fullback Tony Fiammetta.

Rodriguez was ticketed on May 31 for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage. He was also charged in March with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer in Miami. Those charges were eventually dropped.

HAWKS, 2 OTHER TEAMS FINED FOR TAMPERING: The Atlanta Hawks and two other teams have been fined an undisclosed amount by the NBA for tampering.

A league spokesman says a memo was sent to teams informing them of the penalties, but didn't say which clubs were punished or provide the amount of the fines.

However, the Hawks say Monday they were one of them, saying that they "fully understand and respect the NBA's decision."

The team recently sent a letter to potential ticket-buyers promoting its chances of signing Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, who will become free agents on July 1.

Teams are not allowed to discuss their interest in players who are under contract to other teams.

MUNSTER GRAD PICKS PURDUE CAL: Munster's Jacob Wojcik will play men's soccer at Purdue Calumet, the school released Monday.

The 6-foot-1 defender was a two-year letterwinner for the Mustangs, helping the team to a pair of sectional titles and a Northwest Crossroads Conference championship in 2011. He has spent the past four years playing club soccer for Three Lions FC, leading the program to a Indy Burn Cup U19 Gold crown in 2012.

WASHINGTON TWP. PRODUCT RETURNS TO REGION: Washington Township grad Lauren Chambers will join the Purdue Calumet volleyball team, the school announced.

The 5-foot-11 outside hitter was a three-year letterwinner for the Senators, who went 56-16 from 2010-11. She was among the state’s leaders in aces, blocks and kills, while garnering All-Porter County Conference honors.

Chambers spent this past season as a member of an Oakland Community College team that went 22-10.

Thornwood has named Billy Bundy as its interim football coach, interim athletic director Kai Freeman said on Monday. He takes over for Will Milhouse, whose contract was not renewed. ... North Dakota State University suspended star linebacker Travis Beck from the team indefinitely after allegedly hitting a man until he was unconscious in a weekend altercation in Fargo. Beck was suspended from the two-time defending Division I championship team Monday after he was charged with aggravated assault, head coach Craig Bohl said in a statement.
