The Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League reportedly have an offer on the table for current Jets’ QB Tim Tebow if he's unable to find interest from an NFL team. Predators’ owner Brett Bouchy pointed to the development of Kurt Warner as an example of why the Arena would be a good option for him at this point in his career. “Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we’d love to have him,” 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.“ As of now, Tebow remains on the Jets roster, but many expect him to be cut loose at some point this offseason. New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg recently mentioned that Tebow is expected to continue “taking reps at quarterback,” but that’s assuming he’ll even be on their roster by the time training camp rolls around. New York is reportedly still trying to shop him for some amount of draft compensation, which seems unlikely given the Jets didn’t do him any favors last year with regards to the way he was utilized in their offense. It’s safe to assume that the Jets’ poor handling of the situation has had a negative impact on his perceived value as an NFL player. Jacksonville, who was reportedly interested in acquiring Tebow last year, has already publicly stated that they will not pursue him as a trade option or even as a free agent. It’s hard to say what the future holds for Tebow. A change of position could buy him some time in NFL, but he’s said that intends to remain at quarterback. Others have proposed the idea of him possibly signing with the CFL at some point, but there’s been little talk regarding that idea in the past few months.
