(NEW YORK) — While New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow’s NFL future is in doubt, it doesn’t mean he’s still not in demand. The Arena Football League’s Orlando Predators are interested in the former Heisman winner.
Tebow still remains with the Jets, but with Mark Sanchez and David Garrard under contract, Tebow’s role with the team is unknown. In fact, there is some concern that no NFL team will be willing to give Tebow a chance if he is released by the team. That is not an issue for the Predators.
“Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we’d love to have him,” Predators president Brett Bouchy told the Orlando Sentinel. “I think he would definitely improve as a quarterback in our league. Kurt Warner told me once that when he got back to the NFL after playing in the Arena League, the NFL game was like slow motion.”
The last time Tebow was a starting quarterback, he led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, but was traded to the Jets during the offseson when the team signed Peyton Manning.
But he was used sparingly in New York, throwing just eight passes for 39 yards.
