PHILADELPHIA — Could it be Tebow Time in the Arena Football League?
“I love the guy,” Jaworski said. “I want him here just for his leadership.”
Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynamic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez and a merchandising touchdown for the Jets. Instead, he attempted just eight passes for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards — and no touchdowns.
It’s a path that could go through Philadelphia. The Orlando Predators have also expressed interest in Tebow.
Tebow is currently a free agent and hasn’t garnered interest from NFL teams since being cut.
Agent Jimmy Sexton did not immediately return a call for comment.
Tebow’s inaccurate passing, in addition to the relentless media attention he draws, makes him a risky acquisition for any NFL team.
Instead, it was a miserable season for Tebow as the Jets failed to find an effective way to use him, and he didn’t impress Rex Ryan and his coaching staff enough in practice to force them to give him more playing time.
That would all change with the Soul, Jaworski said.
“You’ve got to learn to get rid of the football, quick. You’ve got to process information, quick,” he said. “If those are challenges Tim 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.”
