Tim Tebow is not going to accept a job for anything other than quarterback. But will he accept a job outside of the NFL? The former New York Jets quarterback has just been offered a position to play for the LA KISS in the AFL.
And in case you were wondering, yes, the band is owned by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the rock band Kiss.
Simmons and Stanley extended an official contract offer to Tebow to come play for the LA KISS on Monday. The deal would be for three years and “millions of dollars. It would also send a “shockwave through the league.
Simmons said: “Acquiring Tebow would not only be a great investment for the team, but his exciting style of play would definitely send shockwaves through the League… We’re excited for the opportunity to see him with an LA KISS uniform on, and for the LA KISS fans to be rockin’ their Tebow shirts and jerseys.”
But don’t expect Tebow to jump to the AFL just yet. The former Jets QB is still dead set on landing a job in the NFL and he may not be willing to swallow his pride and play in the NFL. Still, Tebow is running out of options as the first week of the NFL is already over and he is still without a team.
Team co-owner Brett Bouchy said that Tebow could be the next Kurt Warner.
Bouchy said: “Similar to how Kurt Warner blossomed in the NFL after becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks in AFL history, we feel our league is the best place for Tim to refine his skills and gain valuable repetitions. We have tremendous faith in Tim’s ability to succeed in the AFL.”
