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 a sweet deal for a guy who’s looking to stay in the NFL, and it was of little surprise to no one that the 25-year-old Florida Gator product declined the offer.
Which doesn’t bode well for Ron Jaworski, ESPN analyst and part-owner of the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League, who have made a similar offer to Tebow for his services. While Soul QB Dan Raudabaugh remains entrenched as the team’s starting quarterback, Jaws thinks that playing in the up-tempo AFL would help Tebow with his mechanics, specifically his release, which the former Eagles quarterback described as “slow and methodical.”
“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.”
“If Tim Tebow decides he wants to play in the Arena Football League,” Jaworski said, “I’d love to have him on the Philadelphia Soul.”
So far Jaworski has yet to hear back from Tebow, and despite his earnestness to have the former Broncos and Jets QB on his team, he probably shouldn’t wait by the phone to hear from Tebow or his agent. However, as the offseason drags on, and it becomes apparent that no team is willing to take a flyer on the unemployed Tebow, maybe he will take Jaworski up on his arena league offer. Hey, playing in the arena league worked wonders for Kurt Warner, and Jaws thinks there’s no reason it wouldn’t do the same for Tim Tebow and his awful throwing motion.

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.
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. Unfortunately for Tebow, Jaworski, the longtime Philadelphia Eagles QB and current ESPN NFL analyst, is also the opportunistic co-owner of an Arena League team, the Philadelphia Soul

Lincoln Haymakers (of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League) head coach Dave Brumagen did the unthinkable and clearly very stupid when he decided to show his players how to take a running back down. Problem is he did it during a game when he nailed Omaha Beef running back R.J. Rollins.

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...

“I think him going from the Broncos to the Jets was not in anybody’s best interest,” Tisch said.

Tisch just stated the obvious. We all know the Jets didn’t help Tebow at all. They never used...
