The Los Angeles KISS, the new Arena Football League team co-owned by the rock band, offered quarterback Tim Tebow a three-year contract, the team announced Monday. Tebow is the first player co-owners Brett Bouchy, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Doc McGhee have approached. The team begins its inaugural Arena League season in March 2014. It will play its home games at the Honda Center in Anaheim. "Tim Tebow is one of the most recognized and respected athletes in sport," Stanley said in a press release. "His joining us would mean great things for his fans and for our team, especially from a business standpoint. His credibility within the sports arena is paramount and with our commitment to bringing football without compromise back to LA, we're excited to see how this offer turns out." "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," Simmons said in a press release. "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." "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," Bouchy said in a press release. "We have tremendous faith in Tim's ability to succeed in the AFL." If Tebow's demented view that he's ever getting back to the NFL as a QB -- this offer is about as good as it gets. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return to BobsBlitz.comFollow us on Twitter.
