Tim Tebow has been described as a heart-and-soul player. If he chooses, he can be a Soul player -- the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena League.
The unemployed quarterback, released last month by the Jets, received a job from Soul co-owner Ron Jaworski, who went to the trouble of sending Tebow a list of plays he could run for the team -- mostly goal-line plays.
"I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," Jaworski told the Philadelphia Daily News. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him."
The former Eagles quarterback, also an ESPN analyst, made it clear that Dan Raudabaugh remains the starting quarterback despite a poor performance last Saturday. Jaworski believes Tebow could benefit from the style of play in the Arena League.
"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."
Tebow received a similar offer from the Orlando Predators of the Arena League. He also has drawn interest from the Canadian Football League. As for the NFL, there appears to be no market for the popular QB.
