The 25-year-old Tebow, who the Denver Broncos took out of the University of Florida with the 25th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, has thrown 17 touchdowns, against nine interceptions, for 2,422 yards in 14 starts.
“We’d love to have him,” Predators owner Brett Bouchy said. “I think he would definitely improve as a quarterback in our league. Whenever Tim is willing, we have a contract waiting for him to sign.”
Tebow, who led Denver to a 7-4 record under center and propelled the team to a stunning 29-23 victory in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2012 playoffs, was acquired by Gang Green from Denver for a fourth and sixth-round selection in last April’s draft.
Inexplicably enabling the porous performances of Mark Sanchez, Jets coaches staunchly refused to give the 6-foot-3, 235 pound Tebow an opportunity to perform as a field general.
A native of the Jacksonville area, the winner of the 2007 Heisman Trophy connected on six of eight tosses for 39 yards last autumn in the swamps of Jersey.
Despite throwing like a glorified version of Corky Thatcher, Tebow, who completed a putrid 46.5 percent of his 271 pass attempts in 2011, is a proven winner on both the collegiate and professional levels.
Dismissing past success, many insiders believe the erratic southpaw will struggle to find another job in the NFL.
Hence, Tebow working in “The City Beautiful” makes sense.
As an Orlando Predator, Tim Tebow would return to thriving on the gridiron and temporarily muffle his legions of critics.by
