Tim Tebow has been from the top of the mountains in Denver, to the bottom of the sewers of New York. Now, he could very eel go even lower.
Partial owner–and former Eagles’ Quarterback–Ron Jaworski reached out to Tebow recently. The topic? A roster spot on the Philadelphia Soul, in the Arena Football League.
“I haven’t heard back from him and I’m not going to push it,” Jaworski declared. The Soul are currently at 3-4, having lost 53-48 this past Saturday. Jaworski has already stated that current QB Dan Raudabaugh is the team’s starter.”If [Tebow] decides he wants to play Arena Football, we’ll make a spot for him.”
According to Ed Barkowitz of the Philadelphia Daily News, who first broke the story, Soul coach Clint Doleze has sent Tebow a sample of plays. These packages are based on red zone, goal line calls, similar to the presumed role Tebow was going to have with the Jets.
“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,” Jaworski speculated.
Whether Tebow accepts the offer is unclear. For a 3-4 Soul team, however, this may be the right move. Adding Tebow would generate excitement around the club, and may ignite the Soul offense. For Tebow, this would merely be another stop on a long trek to survive in football.
