Tim Tebow won a Heisman Trophy at Florida partly because he was good at rushing. The question now appears: is he fluent in Russian … currency.
“We have offered him $1 million for two games,” Moscow Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman told RBTH. “I talked with him personally and he wanted to go.”
We can’t make this stuff up, folks. Apparently they play American football in Russia and one of those owners is willing to pay seven figures if Tebow shows up to play in the semifinal.
Tebow’s agents are urging him to not play and to focus solely on becoming a motivational speaker, according to Zaltsman. The big-time payday would be more money than Tebow would’ve earned this season if he would’ve been made the New England Patriots’ regular season roster.
Last time we heard any news about Tim Tebow, he was in Los Angeles taking pictures with USC lacrosse girls. We here at Laces Out wonder what’s next.
