RON JAWORSKI treats opportunity like a Doberman treats prime rib. So when Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets on April 29, Jaworski took a shot by reaching out to the unemployed quarterback and offered him a roster spot with the Soul. He's still waiting for a reply. "I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," said Jaworski, one of the Soul's owners. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him. " Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had in mind for him, most were around the goal line.

TIM TEBOW said he'll pass, which was probably a good idea under the circumstances. The Jets quarterback turned down an opportunity to speak at the First Baptist Church in Dallas because its pastor has made outrageous statements about gays and other religions. On Thursday, Tebow tweeted that he canceled an April 28 appearance because of "new information that has been brought to my attention. " The Rev. Robert Jeffress, the church's pastor, has said that Islam promotes pedophilia, and has railed against gays, Jews and Catholics.

Could it be Tebow Time in the Arena Football League? Soul part-owner Ron Jaworski said Wednesday he was serious about his offer to former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to join the AFL team. Jaworski reached out to Tebow a day after the Jets released him in April. Jaworski has yet to hear from Tebow but expects to eventually. "I love the guy," Jaworski said. "I want him here just for his leadership. " Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynamic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez, and a merchandising touchdown for the Jets.

The Tim Tebow phenomenon has caused me to scratch my head so often, I've actually carved out a tiny road in my hairline. I used to have a free-flowing mane. In my many years of covering sports, I have never seen such a marginally talented athlete so overhyped. With Tebow routinely falling to his feet on a playing field, the sporting public has fallen to its feet. The ESPN poll this week revealed the Broncos' QB to be America's favorite active pro athlete. Only 11 athletes total, in the 18 years of this poll, have reached No. 1 status and most of them were in the stratosphere of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Tiger Woods.

The Broncos are 6-1 since Tim Tebow took over for Kyle Orton at quarterback. Four of those victories have come by either four or three points.   For the record San Francisco's Frank Gore passed Hall of Famer Joe Perry (7,344) for the most yards rushing in franchise history. Gore now has 7,395 yards. The 49ers are wearing No. 34 helmet decals this season in honor of Perry, the first player with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He died in April at age 84. Ben Roethlisberger set a Steelers record for completed passes with 2,026 in his career, one more than the old club record of Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw .   Weird stat Rookie Jeremy Kerley muffed a punt deep in his own territory for the Jets' NFL-high sixth special-teams turnover this season.

By Jonathan Gurwitz Charles Barkley may have said it best: "I am not a role model. " Anyone who looks to famous athletes for moral guidance is almost certain to end up disappointed. There have been notable exceptions - athletes whose success in sports was matched by personal and professional integrity and decency. But behind every amazing dunk, every game-winning touchdown, and every spectacular home run is a fallible human being just like the rest of us, prone to make mistakes, break laws, and sin. Few athletic stories are more inspiring than that of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who fulfilled an improbable dream of playing football at Notre Dame with faith and perseverance.

NEW YORK - Tebow Time is off the clock.   Tim Tebow was waived by the Jets on Monday, the end of an unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York that had been expected for months.   "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped," coach Rex Ryan said in a statement by the team in announcing the move.   The Eagles are not interested in Tebow.   The Heisman Trophy winner attempted just eight passes after his ballyhooed arrival in a surprising trade from the Denver Broncos in March 2012.

The Eagles' unpredictable offseason continued Monday when the team worked out Tim Tebow, the polarizing quarterback who has not played in the NFL for the last two seasons. Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not comment on the workout. No deal with Tebow was announced, and ESPN reported that the Eagles would not sign him at this time. But the mere mention of his workout became breaking news in the NFL, which speaks to Tebow's popularity. Tebow, 27, was a 2010 first-round pick who last played for the New England Patriots in the 2013 preseason.

NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, will speak at Plumstead Christian School's annual Founder's Day Forum April 15 in Souderton. Tebow will deliver a message of "faith, family and football," at two events at Calvary Church. The New York Jet quarterback has been outspoken about his Christian faith which is a focus of Through My Eyes , Tebow's best-selling memoir published last year. Tebow will be the first professional athlete to speak at the annual event which has featured several high profile figures including President George W. Bush, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Vice President Dan Quayle.

Besides sports, I can't think of anything as universally polarizing as religion. Yes, I'm making this observation as a believer. Just look at history. Wars waged because of it. Slavery condoned in its name. Lunatics carrying out unspeakable acts for the glory of God - or so they claim. Even now, religion plays a part in our political and cultural consciousness like never before. Heck, Republicans - and religious conservatives - would have anointed Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate a long time ago if he wasn't so, so Mormon.

CHIP KELLY nearly broke the Internet for a wild hour or so yesterday afternoon. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles had worked out Tim Tebow. A team source confirmed the workout, and confirmed that Tebow worked out as a quarterback, though some observers have thought the 6-2, 236-pound 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning QB from Florida might be better suited to play fullback, tight end or safety. Alas, after sounding the nationwide Tebow alarm, Schefter then unrang the bell, reporting that Tebow had left Philly yesterday and that the Birds had decided not to sign him at this time.

IS TONY DUNGY a hypocrite? You make the call. The former NFL coach turned mentor told the Tampa Tribune that he would not have taken defensive end Michael Sam in the 2014 draft because he wouldn't want to deal with all the drama the first openly gay NFL player is likely to bring to a team. Sam was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. A lot of so-called experts think he fell so far because he announced he was gay only 3 months before the draft. "I wouldn't have taken him," Dungy said.

A FEW YEARS ago, around the time Tim Tebow burst upon the scene with his Heisman trophy and his refreshing piety, the genuflecting Gator made headlines when he starred in a controversial commercial with his mother. Tebow's mom had been urged to have a therapeutic abortion when she was pregnant with the future all-star, and had categorically refused. The commercial celebrated her "choice. " Inspiring, right? Well, apparently not to those who lobbied to ban the spot from its Super Bowl slot.

When Brad Smith took the field Sunday for his first play as an Eagle - he lined up at quarterback on first and goal and dropped a shotgun snap and had to scoop up the loose ball and everyone began wondering why Chip Kelly had put him in the game in the first place - it was hard not to think of Rex Ryan. Smith's first five seasons in the NFL had been with the New York Jets. The final two were under Ryan, and Ryan loved Smith. He loved him so much that, throughout the 2012 season, from beginning to end of the Jets' disastrous experiment with Tim Tebow, Ryan often would lament how much the Jets missed Smith and all his Swiss-army-knife-style attributes.

Playing quarterback in the NFL is a high-risk proposition, as Sunday's games demonstrated. Besides the Eagles' Nick Foles, two other signal-callers went down with injuries that may keep them out for a spell. St. Louis' Sam Bradford was hurt in the fourth quarter of the Rams' 30-15 loss to Carolina when he landed on his left knee after being shoved out of bounds by Panthers safety Mike Mitchell. The team offered no update on the extent of the injury, but coach Jeff Fisher said Bradford "was in significant pain on the sideline" while noting the injured knee was the one "with the brace on it. " (In other words, don't bet the update will say Bradford is just tip-top.)

IT WAS ONLY one win, but it's already had a profound effect on the Eagles' season. On Monday night, the Eagles debuted their hypersonic offense in a 33-27 win over the Redskins. Less than 24 hours later, the Birds' Super Bowl odds dramatically improved. At the start of the season, Daily News handicapper Vegas Vic had the Birds' odds to win the Super Bowl at 50-1. Now, he has them at 30-1. And some national oddsmakers have them as low at 25-1. The win also affected after-market ticket prices, according to an online site.

But on Monday came reports that Andy Reid's 2011 first-round pick has received some interest from another team. According to Grand Slam Sports, the offensive lineman was to have a tryout with the Dolphins. It's unclear when.

Tim Tebow smiled and said nothing. The New England Patriots quarterback wasn't going to discuss the imbroglio involving a certain Eagles wide receiver, even if that Eagle was his former roommate at Florida, even if the two were close enough to pillow-fight each other in the apartment they shared. Coach Bill Belichick passed, too. Running back LeGarrette Blount didn't want to touch the issue. The Patriots practiced Tuesday with the Eagles, as they will for the next two days leading up to the teams' preseason game Friday.
