Tim Tebow is available. He wants to play in the NFL. The NFL currently doesn’t want him.
Other teams in other leagues want him. More importantly, they want free publicity.
And the L.A. KISS of the Arena Football League have found a way to get their name on the ESPN scroll by offering Tebow a contract.
The team, owned in part by KISS co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, claims Tebow is “currently reviewing the offer.”
Per a source close to Tebow, the offer isn’t being reviewed, it won’t be reviewed, and it won’t be accepted.
“Tim’s not playing arena football,” the source said.
The fledgling AFL team wisely piggybacked on remarks from former AFL star Kurt Warner, who recently told Dan Patrick that Tebow would benefit from playing in a league other than the NFL.
It doesn’t matter. Tebow wants to play only in the NFL. And it’s still too early to claim he never will again.
Regardless, the L.A. KISS have picked up plenty of extra attention — just like anyone who has ever publicly offered Tebow a job.
Meanwhile, ProFootballTalk.com officially has offered Tebow a job as the starting quarterback in the NFL franchise that we’ll purchase if we ever win enough lotteries to buy a team.
