- Arena League extends invite to Tebow
If Tim Tebow can’t find a job in the NFL, he can always return home to play for …
The Orlando Predators.
Of the Arena Football League.
Predators owner Brett Bouchy told the Orlando Sentinel he’d love to sign Tebow if he’s not on an NFL roster for the 2013 season. Tebow is an icon in the state of Florida and would draw huge crowds in Orlando, not far from Gainesville, where he made his legend as a Florida Gators quarterback.
“Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we’d love to have him,” Bouchy told the newspaper.

The team re-signed Nick Folk on Saturday. From the Jets PR Department: The New York Jets have re-signed unrestricted free agent K Nick [...]
- Put a Folk in him? No, he’s back
Nick Folk decided that four days of free agency was enough. The Jets’ placekicker re-signed Saturday, the team announced. It was a one-year contract, a source said.
Folk, who has held the job for three seasons, is coming off his best statistical year for field goals. He made 21 of 27 tries (77.8 percent), with three of his six misses coming on blocked attempts. It was that kind of year for the special teams, which suffered numerous breakdowns.
Folk, 28, doesn’t have a big leg on kickoffs, but the Jets are willing to live with that.
