Tim Tebow Offered A Football Gig In Florida

By: Amanda Crum - July 21, 2014

Tim Tebow has been off the field for a while following stints with the Jets and Patriots that were less than successful, but he may have another chance to get back to the game if he takes up an offer from Orlando Predators owner David Siegel.

Siegel, who just took over ownership of the team, said he’s looking to recruit some big names now that the Predators have reached number one in their division. With two Arenabowl wins under their belts, the team certainly has what it takes to garner some national attention.

“I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished with the team that we have. But when you have an owner like this and you come back to the Amway Center, it’s fair to say that our recruiting package just got a lot better,” Predators coach Rob Keefe said.

Tebow isn’t far from them now that he’s bought some new sprawling digs in Jacksonville, his former home. And while some of his fans are hoping he’ll come play for the Jaguars, he hasn’t announced any plans to suit up again anytime soon. In fact, he’s working with ESPN as a commentator for the SEC Network.

Tebow was released from the Jets last April after a disappointing season that hardly saw him on the field at all. Despite high hopes that he would bring some fire to the team, because they already had veteran QB Mark Sanchez, the coaches seemed unsure of what to do with him. Coach Rex Ryan said he still believed Tebow was a talented player, and wished him all the best.

“We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow,” he said. “Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward.”

    I doubt it happens. We will just have to wait and see.

    I think things like this should light a fire under Tebow’s A$$. He went from being a Heisman Trophy Winner, to a danger in Denver as well as a playoff team, to losing his starting spot to peyton (ok i can see that) but then it seems like he just gave up, literally, settled for 2nd string with the Jets, PROBABLY had about the same change of beating out Tom Brady as he did Peyton, but he settled for 2nd string there (a place he shouldnt even have signed) and now an analyst? say what you want about Tebow, i think he can be a Smart, GOOD NFL QB, not great, but i do believe with the right opportunity he could give some good teams a run at a playoff spot. He def. cant turn JAX around by himself but he is still dangerous enough to have linebackers watching if hes going to run or pass. he has a great arm, 100% they need a lot more help than Tebow, but i dont think it would be a TERRIBLE idea, i mean how much worse can they get?
