Tim Tebow Has An Arena Football League Contract Waiting For Him
The New York Jets are currently looking to unload quarterback Tim Tebow via trade, but have yet to find any takers for the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner out of Florida.
A far more likely scenario would be the Jets releasing the popular Tebow.
No need for Tebow to worry however, as he has a job waiting, even it it’s not in the National Football League.
The Arena League Orlando Predators, of Tebow’s home state, have said they would gladly take Tebow.
“Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we’d love to have him,” Orlando Predators owner Brett Bouchy told the Orlando Sentinel. “I think he would definitely improve as a quarterback in our league.
“Kurt Warner told me once that when he got back to the NFL after playing in the Arena League, the NFL game was like slow motion. Everything in the Arena League is just so much faster and quicker and predicated on accuracy. Whenever Tim is willing, we have a contract waiting for him to sign.”
Tebow was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, with the 25th-overall pick, by Denver Broncos, where he started 14 games, over two years, before joining the Jets in 2012.
Last season, Tebow attempted only eight passes, completing six, for 39 yards.
For his three-year career, Tebow has completed 173-of-361 passes, for 2.422 yards, along with 17 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He has also rushed for 989 yards and 12 touchdowns.
