Is the Arena League in Tim Tebow's future? Well if the Jets QB doesn't catch on in New York or any other NFL city, he has an open invitation from the Orlando Predators of the Arena League.
According to ESPN today, March 17, Predators owner Brett Bouchy is willing to sign Tebow anytime he needs a job. Bouchy told the Orlando Sentinel he'd love to sign Tebow if he's not on an NFL roster for the 2013 season.
"Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we'd love to have him," Bouchy told the newspaper. "I think he would definitely improve as a quarterback in our league. Kurt Warner told me once that when he got back to the NFL after playing in the Arena League, the NFL game was like slow motion. Everything in the Arena League is just so much faster and quicker and predicated on accuracy. Whenever Tim is willing, we have a contract waiting for him to sign."
Tebow is a living legend in the state of Florida and he would definitely be a huge draw with the Predators, but it still boggles my mind on how much flack this guy gets.
Sure his spiral is not the best, his play calling seems very green at times, but never in the history of the NFL has one non-starting player been so criticized or under the microscope than Tebow.
He is yet to get a real shot at leading a team, yet as a backup QB he led the Broncos to the playoffs and a win over the Steelers two seasons ago.
No one knows if Tebow is better than Mark Sanchez because the Jets never gave him a chance.
I may be in the minority, but if Tebow had a shot to run an offense like the 49ers do now or the old Florida Gators, he would probably be pretty successful in the NFL.
He's not as fast as the 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, but Kaepernick also has a great cast around him. The Jets do not.
