A couple of days ago, we told you about a football squad from Russia called the Moscow Black Storm offering Tim Tebow an astounding $1 million to play in only two games for the team. And, as of right now, Tebow hasn't flat out declined the offer, which can only make you wonder, is he seriously mulling this over?
Honestly, we don't blame him if he ultimately decides to just take the money and run because that's exactly what he should do. Look, aside from the Arena Football League's LA KISS, there aren't any offers to play football in North America, so just take the offer by Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman. Are did he secretly agree to the contract already?
Discovered by Eye On Football, an ITAR-TASS story from Sept. 18, 2013 at 2:36 PM local time states: "Tim Tebow signs contract with Russian football team." President of the Black Storm, Dmitry Popkov, added to the rumors, saying, "Tebow himself, after finding out that people play American football in Russia, was surprised and wanted to see it for himself, to play with Russian players. And then again, an extra million dollars won't harm him. As far as popularizing American football in Russia, he doesn't really care about it. It's interest.”
Hmm. Guess we'll find out by Sept. 28 when the Black Storm play in the championship game, which the team is hoping Tebow will suit up for as their quarterback.
