Tim Tebow is receiving plenty of offers these days. Unfortunately, none of them are from the NFL. The latest team to offer Tim Tebow a job is the Philadelphia Soul.
Unlike other offers made by the Omaha Beef and the Lingerie Football League, the Soul actually have a chance to land Tebow.
Tim is still holding out for a job in the NFL but there aren’t too many teams looking for a third string quarterback at the moment. Tebow may have to swallow the fact that, for now at least, he’s days in the NFL over.
But that’s where the Soul could help Tebow. Team owner Ron Jaworski, a former Pro Bowl quarterback, said that the Soul could give a Tebow to improve his skills before making another try at the NFL. Jaworski said that Tebow is often criticized for being slow and methodical and that playing in the Arena league could help him speed up his game.
Jaworski said: “One [criticism] of Tebow is that he is slow and methodical … 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.”
Jaworski could help Tebow improve his quarterback skills but the Soul owner admitted that he didn’t plan on using Tebow as the starting QB. Instead, Tebow would be in a situation similar to last year where he was used as a backup QB for special plays. The only difference is that Jaworski actually plans on using Tebow instead of putting him out there as media bait.
