Jaworski serious about Tebow in AFL
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Could it be Tebow Time in the Arena Football League?
Philadelphia Soul part owner Ron Jaworski says he's serious about his offer to former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to join the AFL team.
Jaworski, a former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, reached out to Tebow a day after the Jets released him in April. Jaworski has yet to hear from Tebow, but expects to eventually.
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.
Jaworski says Tebow's "in a funk" right now and needs to consider his career path back to the NFL.
