Omaha Beef indoor team offers Tebow contract

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha Beef have 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


player contract. Beef assistant general manager Andrew Mather said

Tuesday that he doesn't expect to hear back, but he thought

it was worth asking.

The Beef's current 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. McNear said, "I think Tim can learn a lot from me."
