Tim Tebow gets an offer to play pro football in Italy

Tim Tebow's dream of playing quarterback for a professional football team might be over in America, or at least the NFL, but Italian league team Milano has offered him a four-month contract.

Milano team President Marco Mutti told the Associated Press that the offer has been sent to Tebow's agent and the club is awaiting an answer.

“We would be more than happy to have him,” Mutti said.

The Milano Seamen lost last season's championship game to the Parma Panthers, 51-28. The new season begins in March.

Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and two-time BCS champion, last played for the New England Patriots, who cut the former Florida star before the regular season began.

A spokesman for the Italian league told the Associated Press that the contract was worth about $200,000.
