ROME (AP) — Tim Tebow has been offered a four-month contract by the Italian federation for American football.

The Milano Seamen say they would be happy to sign the free agent quarterback.

Excerpts of an offer sent by federation president Leoluca Orlando to Tebow’s represntatives were posted on the federation’s website Thursday.

Seamen president Marco Mutti tells The Associated Press, “The offer has been made to his agent and now we’re waiting for a response. … We would be more than happy to have him.”

A federation spokesman tells The AP that the offer to play the Italian season beginning in March is for $200,000.

Tebow was cut by the New England Patriots before this NFL season. He would be the most prominent player to appear in the eight-team Italian league — by far.
