Tim Tebow officially has two job offers. A day after the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League told Tebow he could come compete for their backup quarterback job, the Omaha Beef of the Champions Professional Indoor Football contacted Tebow’s agent, Brian Sexton, and offered him a standard player contract — which pays $75 per game.
Now this has to simply be a publicity stunt by the Beef because the team’s general manager, Andrew Mather, told The Associated Press that he’s not expecting a reply from Sexton or Tebow, but “it was worth asking.” Regardless of whether Tebow replies, thousands of people now know of the Omaha Beef, which was certainly not the case before Tuesday.
However, that’s not even the best part. When asked about the possibility of Tebow joining his team, Beef starting quarterback James McNear had the best line of the day:
“I think Tim can learn a lot from me.”
McNear is 5-1 as a starter this season and, according to ESPN, has completed 70 percent of his passes for 21 touchdowns and just two interceptions. Of course, the defenses against which he’s throwing probably don’t measure up to those of the NFL, but those are still impressive stats.
Well, if Tebow stays unemployed, he can’t say he didn’t have opportunities.
