of Tim Tebow that is.
It seems like just a couple of weeks ago I wrote my list for Top 10 Reasons Bronco's Need Tebow. Now it looks like Tim may be playing football in Denver again. Sadly its not for the Broncos but in a spring arena football league.
The possibility of the Mile High Messiah returning to play quarterback for Denver is mind-boggling, but not as far-fetched as it may seem.
A new spring, outdoor professional football league has been created and financed. Tebow's reps have been approached about the former Broncos QB playing in the league, and a franchise most likely will be awarded soon to Denver. ESPN, which now employs The Big Tebowski, will televise league games.This will give die hard Tebow fans in Denver, something to cheer for. It may even prove to be a very smart marketing move for arena football. People seem to legitimately like Tim Tebow. Perhaps having him on the team will increase the fan draw in a sport venue that has never caught on in the way that organizers have hoped.
A career path of NFL to ESPN is an acceptable retirement option for a man leaving sports. It was a good choice for the young, popular and photogenic Tebow. By all accounts Tim will keep the ESPN gig as his day job. A career path of NFL to Arena Football is like saying all I can do is play ball and I'll keep at it till all I can do is coach JV.
I don't know if its time for Tim to give up his NFL dream. I don't see arena football as a spring board back to the Broncos. Stranger things have happened. I hope they do for Tim. Maybe after playing ball in Denver again Bronco's management will see Tebow as a popular personality who benefits the team simply by being on it. I'm not willing to make book on it.
