Tim Tebow Offered $1 Million for Two GamesBy: Lindsay McCane - September 15, 2013
Tim Tebow has been struggling to find work in the NFL. However, there is an American team in Russia that is willing to offer Tebow one million dollars for him to play just two games.
The Moscow Black Storm owner, Mikhail Zaltsman, told the Russia Beyond the Headlines that he wants Tebow to play for his team.
Zaltsman wants Tebow to fly to Moscow to play in the Black Storm’s semifinal game against the Moscow Patriots in the American Football Championship of Russia on September 28. He then wants Tebow to help them win the finals.
Zaltsman claims that Tebow’s biggest obstacle standing in the way is his agents. He says: “They’re thinking of using him as a motivational speaker. They don’t want him to play football.” However, Zaltsman is prepared to do whatever it takes to get Tebow on his team. “He says that this is his top choice, but from what we know, it is his only choice,” Zaltsman says.
There is speculation that the only reason Black Storm needs Tebow is to stop the former University of North Carolina fullback Bobby Rome. Rome is now the starting quarterback for the Moscow Patriots. “My advice to him would be to just have fun,” Rome said. “They’re great guys, great athletes, and they’re underestimated.”
Rome says it is very unlikely that Tebow would come to Russia because “that would make a lot of [NFL] teams more apprehensive about signing him.” We all know that Tebow’s dream is to be a quarterback in the NFL and he is determined to get there.
