If New York Jets’ quarterback Tim Tebow can’t find a new home in the NFL, there is a team that wants him to come play for them. The Orlando Predators, of the Arena Football League, are expressing interest in signing Tebow, and bringing him home to Florida.
While speaking with the Orlando Sentinel, Predators owner Brett Bouchy said he’d love to have Tebow on the team, though, “Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL.” Bouchy thinks some time in the AFL would help Tebow improve, which could make him a bigger asset to the NFL. Bouchy cites retired Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, who played in the AFL after going unpicked in the NFL draft. Warner says that after playing arena football, the NFL was like slow motion.
Bouchy says whenever Tebow is ready, the Predators have a contract waiting for him. Is this the next stop for the quarterback, though? The Jets have been looking to trade Tebow since the season ended, but even his hometown team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, aren’t interested in bringing him on board.
