Philadelphia Soul wooing Tebow
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.
According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had drawn up for him — most of them goal-line plays — trying to woo the free agent to join their team.
"If Tim Tebow decides he wants to play in the Arena Football League," Jaworski told the Daily News, "I'd love to have him on the Philadelphia Soul."
But even if Tebow takes his talents indoors, it won’t be as a starter. He’d be backing up former Miami (Ohio) quarterback Dan Raudabaugh. Even so, Jaworski said the experience could be good for Tebow as he tries to bolster his NFL resume.
"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."
Not surprisingly, Tebow has yet to respond to the offer.
"I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," Jaworski told the paper. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him."
