According to Russia Beyond the Headlines, a Russian football team called the Moscow Black Storm has made a contract offer to Tim Tebow.
“We have offered him $1 million for two games,” Moscow Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman told RBTH. “I talked with him personally and he wanted to go.”
The team’s plan is below.
Zaltsman’s plan is for Tebow to fly into Moscow for the Black Storm’s semifinal against the Moscow Patriots in the American Football Championship of Russia on Sept. 28, sweep the team to victory and then win the final.
The only problem is that Tebow’s agents don’t want him to play in Russia.
“They’re thinking of using him as a motivational speaker,” he said. “They don’t want him to play football.”
The Black Storm owner is apparently ready to play “hard ball” with Tebow.
“He says that this is his top choice, but from what we know, it is his only choice,” Zaltsman says.
What Zaltsman fails to realize is that even though Russia might be Tebow’s only option right now, he’s still willing to turn them down.
