Tebow has stated many times that he wants to play in the NFL as a QB, and nothing else. It’s his destiny, if you will, to play in the league as a starting QB.
Unfortunately for Tebow, the odds of that happening are pretty slim right now, but according to NBC Sports, he currently has an offer on the table from a Russian football team.
Mikhail Zaltsman, the owner of the Moscow Black Storm, told the state-owned Russia Beyond the Headlines that he wants Tebow.
Zaltsman believes that if Tebow shows up in time to play in the semifinal of the American Football Championship of Russia on September 28, Tebow can lead the team to a victory in the semifinal (against the Moscow Patriots) and then win again in the championship game.
The owner claims he personally spoke with Tebow, offered him more money than he would have made for playing a full season for the New England Patriots, and that Tebow wants to do it.
Alas, according to Zaltsman, Tebow’s agents are strongly urging him not to play, and as a result, Tebow is unlikely to participate in the American Football Championship of Russia.
It’s safe to say Tebow’s mind is set on playing in the NFL, and no place else. Maybe it’s time for him to face the facts, and realize if he wants to play, he’s going to have either go elsewhere or wait around for a team to give him another chance.
One thing’s for sure, he’s not getting any younger, and his arm still hasn’t improved.
Good luck, sir.
