Former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is currently looking for employment after being cut by the team after one season of service on Monday.

While he waits to field offers from other football teams or leagues, one league is offering their services as a quarterbacks coach.

The Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League) sent a letter to Tebow’s representatives to try to land him a gig, reports Yahoo! Sports. 

Part of the letter reads:

Now that it appears that Mr. Tebow’s career in the National Football League may be coming to an end, we at Legends Football League, LLC, would like to extend him an offer to become our Quarterbacks Coach nationally.

Tebow’s NFL credentials: 47.9% career passer, 17 touchdowns, nine interceptions and 989 rushing yards.

The league is going through a change, getting rid of the skimpy outfits its players were known for wearing, hence the word Lingerie.

What complete and utter disrespect. "Now that it appears that Mr. Tebow's career in the National Football League may be coming to an end..." And from the Lingerie league too, of all places. Seriously? They would be lucky to have someone of that much celebrity pull involved in their league, yet they word their offer in such a way as if they are throwing him scraps? I wouldn't even dignify that letter with a response. Tebow is not out of the league yet. There is no reason that he should be. Everyone constantly complains about him because of his stats, and yes, that's understandable, but sometimes stats aren't all there is to it! Tebow has the heart of a champion, and he willed his team to the playoffs in his one starting season. Does that automatically mean he will keep it up in the future? No. Does he deserve a shot? Of course he does.

People have been trying to crucify Tebow since before he stepped on the field the first time in Denver. He gets no respect. While I would never venture to say that he is a top QB in this league, he gets the job done more often than not, and doesn't deserve the venom people heap on him.

Plus, if you believe Steve Clarkson, the throwing motion problem as been fixed this offseason. I'm not saying it's as simple as taking his word for it, but THE MAN HAS EARNED A CHANCE.Jacksonville should take him. Floridians would likely embrace having their hero back, and he can't possibly be much worse than Blaine Gabbert.

Tiny Tim replied to the offer with a beat-red, blushing face.  "I'm sorry, but there's too much...too much skin showing."

Tim has a lot of time left, I'm sure another team is already trying to get him, besides the "girly" league.  Plus did he actually play for the Jet's?  That's a valid question, the ball boy had more playing time, what did the Jet's expect?

Vengeance is when he beats them when he's quarterback on another team.

Can YOU believe those M-O-R-O-N-S ??!!  They had a great athlete, a Heisman trophy winner (as a sophomore) and a hard working, dedicated player. I believe Rex Ryan had an apriori against Tebow: he's different, he can't possible pass AND run. Well, we will see who has the intelligence and fortuitousness to pickup the young, basically untested q.b. Tim fits in EVERYWHERE: Patriots as a fullback / tight end; Eagles and their run and shoot / read option / or whatever;  We WILL see won't we? WHY did the Jets bother to bring in Tebow only to give him about 9 plays in 16 games?

 @DanielDavis "Does he deserve a shot"  Uh, what do you think the last 5 HORRIBLE games in Denver was?  What do you think last season was?  Being on an NFL roster for a full year IS "a shot".  It's enough of a shot for each of the other 1500+ players in the NFL, so why does he "deserve" any more of a shot than he's already had?

 What you are missing, Paco, is the fact that Tim Tebow went on record as saying that he is a quarterback. He went to Jets coaches and told them he wouldn't play the wildcat QB anymore, he only wanted to play QB. By the way, Tebow isn't the only Heisman winning player to come into the NFL and show flaws in his game. If he was willing to change position and become a RB, TE, or FB, he wouldn't be in this position. True the Jets didn't use him to his fullest potential, but the Jets also didn't have the personel to teach him how to play QB properly, who was going to teach him, Sparano? Think about it. So with that said understand that if the Jets had kept Tebow, they would have done him a disservice. Releasing him was the best thing for both parties, and if you are right, then someone else will pick him up.

 @pacoNmartinez From his time in the NFL, it was obvious he couldn't pass. 47% career completion? That screams sub-par. Just because he's Tim Tebow doesn't mean he's an NFL caliber player. He might even be able to play somewhere at a different position, but HE chose to be qb in the NFL. He wasn't good. Stats don't lie.

 @pandah462  @bobmartin30 The Omaha Beef will play a barnstorming tour of the AFC East in July.  They'll team up with the Lingerie League and the Harlem Globetrotters, and in this manner Tim Tebow will exact his revenge on the NY Jets!

Tim Couch comes to mind. Finalist two years in a row. He was a much better QB than Tebow will ever be and he sucked in the NFL as well. Tebow is done.
