In the odd saga that is Tim Tebow, a group of Jacksonville Jaguar fans held a rally Monday to encourage the team to sign the free-agent quarterback. That wasn't Tim Tebow's only recent boost of support however, as a team in Russia actually offered the unemployed athlete $1 million to play in just two games, according to CBS Sports on Sept. 16.
A group of Jacksonville Jaguars fans held a rally Monday in the EverBank Field parking lot beginning at 3:16 p.m. ET, in order to encourage the team to sign the former Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Florida.
The rally lasted three hours and 16 minutes. The start time and duration correspond to the bible verse John 3:16, which Tebow infamously inscribed on his eye black for the 2009 BCS title game, according to ESPN .
Jacksonville native James Stewart, 56, said regardless of the turnout the group accomplished its purpose. They basically got the ball rolling for their movement, and plan to hold future rallies every Monday.
Meanwhile, another more bizarre story broke the same day, that a football team in Russia made a $1 million offer to Tebow to come play in their semi-final and final games.
The Moscow Black Storm, a Russian team competing in the American Football Championship of Russia on Sept. 28., extended the lucrative offer to Tebow.
Team owner Mikhail Zaltsman claims he personally spoke to Tebow and he's game for the idea. "(His agents are) thinking of using him as a motivational speaker. They don't want him to play football", Zaltsman admitted.
Black Storm first plays the Moscow Patriots in the semifinal game. Zaltsman's hope is that Tebow might somehow help the team to a championship.
Of course if neither of those opportunities pan out, there's still Gene Simmon's offer for Tim to "make millions" playing arena football for the LA KISS.
