Tim Tebow drawing interest from new A-11 football league


There are a lot of folks out there that want to see Tim Tebow back on the football field. Yes, believe it or not, those people still exist, and they also now include league officials from the new A-11 football league, according to SFExaminer.com.

“We would love to have Tim Tebow join our league,” A-11 commissionerScott McKibben said. “Tim Tebow stands for everything we think the game ought to represent — character, values and role-modeling for young players.”

This new professional football league will feature the A-11 offense, which basically means that every player on the offensive side of the ball is an eligible receiver. According to the report, league officials have had multiple discussions with Tebow’s representatives, although there’s no indication so far that the interest is mutual.

When speaking of Tebow, league founder Steven Humphries expressed his admiration for the Heisman winner.

“[Tebow] is perfectly built for this football league,” league founder Steven Humphries said. “He’s my favorite football player and always has been.”

It’s probably unlikely that this becomes a reality, but these rumors will always be around. Recently, Tebow accepted probably the most lucrative deal of his post-playing career so far when he was hired by ESPN as an analyst for the upcoming SEC Network.

But  still, for the Tebow apologists, this is a good sign that people still want him on a gridiron.
