Tim Tebow Offered $1 Million to Play for Moscow Black Storm

Tim Tebow is a wanted man. By Moscow, that is. People in Russia want to see Tim Tebow play football.

After being let go from the New England Patriots on Aug. 31, 2013, Tim Tebow has been without a job. The job he wants is to be an NFL quarterback. He even turned down an NFL football position offered by another NFL pro team.

Tim Tebow played for the Denver Broncos during the 2011-12 post season. He was let go as quarterback after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning. Tim Tebow then had a lackluster performance while playing a season for the New York Jets.

Jacksonville Jaguars Fans Rally for Tim Tebow

Right now, people have started a weekly rally outside of EverBank Field in Jacksonville, FL in an attempt to bring Tim Tebow to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said back in January 2013: “I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar – even if he’s released.”

Will Tim Tebow Play Football in Moscow, Russia?

Tim Tebow has been offered $1 Million dollars by the Moscow Black Storm to play in two playoff games. The owner of the Moscow Black Storm, Mikhail Zaltsman, has said: “I talked with him personally, and he wanted to go.”

According to Yahoo! News, Tim Tebow’s agents are recommending that Tim Tebow not go to Moscow to play quarterback. Perhaps this could hurt his chances to re-sign with an NFL football team, especially if Tim Tebow were to get injured while in Russia.

If Tim Tebow were to go to Moscow to play American Football, he would fly to Russia to play in the Black Storm’s semi-final game against the Moscow Patriots on Sept. 28, 2013. If they were to beat the Moscow Patriots, then Tim Tebow would also play in the finals with the Moscow Black Storm. 

Do you think Tim Tebow should fly to Moscow, Russia and play for the Black Storm or should he hold out to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars?
