A second team has expressed interest in Tim Tebow. Now all he has to do is decide to accept a move outside the NFL.

Tebow, cut April 29 by the New York Jets, was quickly offered a job by the Omaha Beef of the Champions Indoor Professional Football League and, over the weekend, the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League expressed interest in him. That could be a more intriguing option, given that former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski is a part owner of the team.

“I haven’t heard back from him and I’m not going to push it,” Jaworski told the Philadelphia Daily News. “If he decides he wants to play Arena football, we’ll make a spot for him.”

That spot would involve using him mostly around the goal line.

“One [criticism] of Tebow is that he is slow and methodical,” Jaworski said. “He would be forced to quicken it up in this league and it would be good training for him. You can learn a lot in this league. It’s about processing information and getting the ball out . . . or you get whacked.”
