May 14 (UPI) -- Tim Tebow has had a wild ride as a free agent. He first earned a promotional deal with Omaha Beef for $75 per game.

Later, his fans started a petition to the White House to get President Obama's help in getting Tebow to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But Ron Jaworski, part-owner of the Philadelphia Soul, has an offer that Tebow might actually consider. Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays the team would use should Tebow join the AFL team, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The AFL and NFL seasons do not conflict, but signing would prevent Tebow from going to an NFL camp this summer. Several teams have said they do not have interest in Tebow after he was cut from the Jets.

Jaworski said that even if the former Heisman Trophy-winner joins the team, he will not be starting quarterback for the Soul.

"I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," Jaworksi told the Philadelphia Daily News. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him."

Tebow has not yet commented on the offer.
