Tim Tebow has no job offers coming here in the NFL, so maybe he should try his luck in Moscow.
Mikhail Zaltsman is the owner of an american football team in Russia. Zaltsman, the owner the Moscow Black Storm, told the state-owned Russia Beyond the Headlines that he wants Tim Tebow.
Zaltsman believes that if Tebow can show up in time to play in the semifinal of the American Football Championship of Russia on September 28, Tebow can lead the team to a victory in the semifinal (against the Moscow Patriots) and then win again in the championship game.
Zaltsman claims he personally spoke with Tim Tebow, and offered him more money than he would have made for playing a full season for the New England Patriots, and that Tebow actually wants to do it.
“We have offered him $1 million for two games,” Zaltsman told Russia Beyond the Headlines. “I talked with him personally and he wanted to go.”
Reports are that Tebow’s representatives are strongly against the move, and it’s unlikely to happen now.
