OMAHA, Neb. – The Omaha Beef has a job waiting for Tim Tebow if he wants it – and the Nebraska indoor football team will even pay him $75 a game.
A day after Tebow was cut by the New York Jets, the Beef called the office of Tebow agent Jimmy Sexton to offer a standard player contract.
Beef assistant general manager Andrew Mather said yesterday that he doesn’t expect to hear back, but he thought it was worth asking.
Tebow went unclaimed on NFL waivers yesterday.
The Beef’s quarterback, James McNear, has led the team to a 5-1 start. He’s completing 70 percent of his passes and has thrown for 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions.
McNear is anything but insulted by the Beef’s wooing of Tebow.
“I think Tim can learn a lot from me,” McNear said.
