Tim Tebow has been blackballed from the NFL, shown zero interest in the CFL, and rejected several offers from the AFL.

Enter the A-11 League.

The new spring professional football league has reportedly extended Tebow an offer to play quarterback, with league officials confirming they've had discussions with his representatives.

"He is perfectly built for this football league," league founder Steven Humphries said, via NJ.com. "He's my favorite football player and always has been."

Good to know.

It's unclear -- and probably unlikely -- Tebow, who's currently working as an ESPN college football analyst, has returned interest in joining the league, which is so new it's yet to announce the location of all of its franchises.

However, A-11 commissioner Scott McKibben is steadfast in trying to harness Tebowmania and everything it represents.

"We would love to have Tim Tebow join our league. Tim Tebow stands for everything we think the game ought to represent -- character, values and role-modeling for young players," McKibben said.

If Humphries and McKibben are determined to land Tebow -- again, a longshot -- they'd be best served planting a franchise somewhere in northern Florida, where he was born, raised, and experienced unparalleled success in high school and college.

According to its website, the league bills itself as "returning the game to its original roots."

"Imagine every player on offense being eligible to receive the ball, depending on how they line up at the line of scrimmage. It’s also a league built by avid football fans who also happen to be successful business leaders and sports executives."

How could Tebow possibly say no to that?
