Tim Tebow may be short on interest from NFL teams at the moment, but at least he has plenty of other job offers. Ron Jaworski, a former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and current ESPN NFL analyst, says he offered Tebow a job to play for the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League. Jaws is one of the team’s co-owners. Jaworski told the Philadelphia Daily News that he and the Soul’s coach drew up some plays they sent to Tebow as part of their offer. Most of the plays they had in mind for him reportedly were around the goal line. Jaws says the team was not planning to give Tebow the starting quarterback job, but Jaws thinks some time in the league could be beneficial to the former Jets and Broncos QB. “One [criticism] of Tebow is that he is slow and methodical,” Jaworski told the Daily News. “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.” No surprise, Tebow has not responded to the offer. The former Heisman Trophy winner is looking to stay in the NFL. Tebow is good enough to be a backup quarterback in the league, but teams don’t want a backup who’s going to invite a media circus. His chances of getting a gig in the league might be improved if he switched positions, but he does not seem ready to do that. In the meantime, Tebow can continue working with his quarterback coach while contemplating offers from the AFL and Lingerie Football League. Helmet smack to Pro Football Talk
