My Sports Rumors:
There’s been so much talk about Tim Tebow and his religious beliefs but maybe we’ll see soon how much soul he really has. Ron Jaworski of the AFL’s Philadelphia Soul has offered the “quarterback” a chance to play for the team. This isn’t the first AFL offer that Tebow has received but it could be the most intriguing.
The Omaha Beef put an offer on the table for the former Bronco and Jet shortly after he was cut loose by the Jets and now he’s also gotten an offer from the Philadelphia Soul. What might make the Philly offer a more interesting one for Tebow is that the Soul are owned by Ron Jaworski, whose playing career suggests he knows a thing or two about how to be a successful NFL quarterback.
Here’s the rub, though: Jaworski, who said last summer he thought Tebow’s throwing motion had improved, isn’t looking at Tebow as a starting quarterback. He told the Philadelphia Daily News that he and Soul coach Clint Dolezal sent Tebow a list of plays that they would want to use him on, most of which occur near the end zone, but that Dan Raudabaugh would remain the team’s starting quarterback. Jaworski also shared why he believed playing arena football would help Tebow.
“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.”(Josh Alper – ProFootballTalk)
ProFootballTalk says the team and Jaworski haven’t heard anything back yet. So I guess it’s safe to assume that Tebow still isn’t entertaining AFL offers which isn’t a surprise since he still wants to be a quarterback in the NFL.
What’s surprising but not surprising is that the Soul isn’t even offering a starting quarterback role. Tebow would be a huge draw for any AFL team but you can see even there, they care more about winning.

ALL ABOUT TIM
Tim Tebow may longer be part of the New York Jets, but that doesn't mean he's still can't make headlines in the Big Apple.
The offers haven’t been pouring in for quarterback Tim Tebow since the Jets released him last month. In actuality the only offer the NFL’s most polarizing player has received has been from the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, who own Tebow’s negotiating rights by the way, and that was to come in and compete for a spot as the backup QB to starter Anthony Calvillo. Not exactly...
Tim Tebow is on the hunt for a new quarterbacking job after being released by the New York Jets, and Ron Jaworski is offering to help him find work.

Since the New York Jets released quarterback Tim Tebow, NFL teams

Over the last 16 months, Tim Tebow has gone from leading the Denver Broncos to the NFL playoffs to looking for a job after being released by the New York Jets.

Tim Tebow is loved by fans far and wide, just not too many coaches or team executives. Since getting cut from the New York Jets the young QB has not received even a nibble from another team. In fact, the lack of interest coupled with teams publicly stating a lack of interest in him has led many to say he's been blackballed by the NFL.
What Tebow needs is a friend--and it...
As the man who compiles Football Nation's Top 100 Quarterbacks Since the Merger list, I'd be lying if I said Tebow was, at this time, qualified for the list. The No. 100 entry, Gus Frerotte, had a rather distinguished career as a journeyman backup, and was one of the best seventh round picks in recent memory.Tebow, to my way of thinking, hasn't quite done enough to surpass...
TMZ caught up with New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch and asked him about Tim Tebow’s career.
“I think him going from the Broncos to the Jets was not in anybody’s best interest,” Tisch said.
“Had another team picked him up after the Broncos, maybe he’d have a career.”
Tisch just stated the obvious. We all know the Jets didn’t help Tebow at all. They never used...
New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch is an animated kind of guy, and we can assume that some of that stems from his work in films.
Tisch and his franchise battle with the New York Jets on a daily basis for back page headlines, so it’s only right that when the Jets are trying to clean up their mess of a franchise, Tisch feels the need to take a shot.
