turtleneckjock saidRumor has it Tim just may come back to Florida. Two options were floated today:
The Bucs are looking for a backup quarterback behind Josh Freeman. Not quite near his home in Jacksonville, but not all that far either.
No one saw this one coming.....there is some interest in him going to the Arena Football League and the Orlando Predators are VERY interested in him. That could be a smart move for Tim as not only will they pack 'em in at the Amway Center, he elevates the league and will increase attendance. I like that idea the best as he could be toast in the NFL.
And....again.....the Jags have said they do not want him. Dumb Jags! Bad Jags!
Curiously, the Jags did not sign a starting quarterback, and they had their choice of any of the rookies in the draft. They chose no one. Whether this means anything remains to be seen. Tim Tebow does not officially go on waivers until today at 4pm, so if there are any NFL teams interested, this can't happen until after that.
As for the Arena League, I hate to see Tim reduced to this, because I truly believe under the right coach and the right circumstances he can succeed as starting quarterback in the NFL just as he did at Denver. That being said, the Arena League sure didn't hurt Kurt Warner. Also, Tim Tebow's name recognition is through the roof, so in that respect he could potentially raise the awareness of the Arena League to higher heights as Tebow fans tune in to see him play. I've never even seen an Arena game --- but I'd tune in if Tebow were playing.
