Former NFL starting quarterback and ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski believes that Tim Tebow’s path back to the NFL could go through the Arena Football League. The former Philadelphia Eagles signal-caller has offered Tebow a chance to join the Philadelphia Soul, an AFL team that he is part owner of. When asked about the offer, Jaworski claimed he was serious and that he loved Tebow and would want him with the Soul for his leadership alone. Tebow is coming off a disastrous season with the New York Jets where he attempted just eight passes (completing six) for 39 yards. He also ran the ball 32 times for 102 yards, but accounted for zero total touchdowns. Jaworski related why he thinks the AFL is the right place for Tebow now: “I know Tim’s in a funk right now. But I think he’s got to have a career path. What’s he going to do to get back?” Tebow’s long delivery has been a big problem in his development as a passer, but Jaworski thinks that would change with some time in the Arena League: “You’ve got to learn to get rid of the football, quick. You’ve got to process information, quick. If those are challenges Time has, that’s it. If you get reps and you’re dropping back 40-45 times, with people in your face, you get better. He needs to play. He needs to be on the field.” The Orlando Predators are another AFL team that has expressed interest in Tebow. Honestly the AFL does seem like the best place for Tebow to develop his game right now, though the Canadian Football League might be his best chance to actually put up some solid numbers based on the style of play north of the border. Either way, he doesn’t belong in the NFL at this point. *Originally posted on Rumors and Rants The post Tim Tebow: Ron Jaworski thinks Arena League is path back to NFL for QB appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
