Tim Tebow to play in Philadelphia?

USA TODAY Sports

Tim Tebow will play football here in Philadelphia... if former Eagle and current Soul owner Ron Jaworski gets his way.

Could we be seeing Tim Tebow playing football in South Philadelphia? If Ron Jaworski gets his way, yes we could. Jaws has extended Tebow an offer to play for his arena league team, the Philadelphia Soul.

Jaws says he hasn't heard back from Tebow yet, but went so far as to send him a package of plays designed specifically for him. The former Eagles QB says that some time in the arena league could even benefit his NFL areer.

"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."

Jaws reaching to Tebow could be like some bizarro world version of what happened in Denver where the presence of the great John Elway lured the great Peyton Manning.

And actually, it could work out better. Think about it. For the Soul, it's a massive win. Even up here in Philadelphia Tebow would still likely be a big draw and given ESPN's obsession with him they'd probably even start covering Soul games on SportsCenter. Interest in the league would go up, TV rights would be more sought after... It would be a massive get for them.

For Tebow, it would obviously take some swallowing of pride to take the step down from the NFL, but the most important thing is that he'd play. No more fading away on a bench somewhere while the likes of Greg McElroy takes snaps ahead of him. He'd actually get to be a quarterback again or even if he was used somewhere else on the Soul, he'd still be playing and giving NFL teams a chance to stop thinking about Tim Tebow the media circus and watch a little bit of Tim Tebow the football player.

I don't know if his ego can handle it, but if he can't get an NFL job and is willing to be a little humble... I'd love to see this happen.
