LA KISS offers Tim Tebow a three-year contract to play arena ball
Tim Tebow’s NFL career might have hit a wall, but there’s still a place for him where football has walls.
The Arena Football League’s LA KISS -- yes, the rock band KISS bought an arena team -- is offering Tebow a three-year deal.
The offer “will encompass a three-year contract with the possibility for Tebow to earn millions,” the team said in a news release Monday.
“As a former NFL player, the LA KISS will offer intense training and unwavered commitment to the former New England Patriots player, with the hopes to take him to the next level, the release said.
“The chance for Tebow to improve as a quarterback is immense as the AFL is a pass-happy league with 90% of the league’s offensive plays coming from throwing the ball.”
The release added: “If accepted, the contract will need to be approved by both the AFL’s Board of Directors and the AFL Players Union.”
There are even quotes from Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.
“Tim Tebow is one of the most recognized and respected athletes in sports,” Stanley said. “His joining us would mean great things for his fans and for our team, especially from a business standpoint.”
Simmons added: “Acquiring Tebow would not only be a great investment for the team, but his exciting style of play would definitely send shockwaves through the League. We’re excited for the opportunity to see him with an LA KISS uniform on, and for the LA KISS fans to be rockin’ their Tebow shirts and jerseys.”
No word from Tebow about whether he’s interested.
As for KISS, they wouldn’t do something purely for publicity, right?
