A couple of weeks ago, Tim Tebow received an offer from the IFL’s Omaha Beef to come play arena football for $75 a game. Tebow’s camp of course never even responded.
Tebow now has an offer from the actual Arena Football League, and it’s one he might consider simply because of who’s offering it.
The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that former Eagles quarterback and current ESPN quarterback guru Ron Jaworski has offered Tebow an opportunity to play with the Philadelphia Soul.
“I haven’t heard back from him and I’m not going to push it,” said Jaworski, one of the Soul’s owners. “If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we’ll make a spot for him.”
Jaworski of course is the owner of the Soul and knows a little bit about playing quarterback. Of course the offer comes with a catch.
He was only offered goal line opportunities. Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had in mind for him, most were around the goal line.
“One [criticism] of Tebow is that he is slow and methodical,” Jaworski said. “He would be forced to quicken it up in this league and it would be good training for him. You can learn a lot in this league. It’s about processing information and getting the ball out . . . or you get whacked.”
