Russian football team trying to lure Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow can’t find work in the NFL, but there’s an American football team in Russia that says it will offer him $1 million for two games.

Yes, there are American football teams in Russia.

Mikhail Zaltsman, the owner of one of those teams, the Moscow Black Storm, told the state-owned Russia Beyond the Headlines that he wants Tebow. Zaltsman believes that if Tebow shows 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 Tebow, offered him more money than he would have made for playing a full season for the New England Patriots, and that Tebow 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.”

Unfortunately, according to Zaltsman, Tebow’s agents are strongly urging him not to play, and as a result, Tebow is unlikely to participate in the American Football Championship of Russia.

I thought I heard the LA KISS signed him.

That was about 4 or 5 days ago for 3 yrs. He evidently has not taken it or the other AFL team (I think in Pennsylvania) or CFL offer.
