Recently released from the New York Jets, many questions now surround the future of Tim Tebow's football career.

That may not be the case for long, thanks to an offer from an unlikely source—the Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League.

According to Jay Busbee at Yahoo! SportsLingerie Football League president Mitchell Mortaza contacted Tebow's agent, Jimmy Sexton, in regard to whether his client would be interested in being the national Quarterbacks Coach.

Here's the letter in full:

The Jets officially released Tebow on Monday morning, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Jets coach Rex Ryan also issued a statement. Via Newsday's Kimberley A. Martin:

Rex statement: “We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow. “Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped." #nyj (pt1)

Rex (contd): "Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving fwd.” #nyj

After leading the Denver Broncos on a sensational run to the 2011 NFL playoffs, Tebow was then traded from Denver to New York. It was thought that the national phenom was going to compete with the struggling Mark Sanchez for first-string duties, but he was not given a start under center all season and it became clear that the Jets' plan for Tebow was nothing more than on special teams or in the Wildcat formation.

Once the Jets signed veteran David Garrard this offseason and then selected West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in the second round of the draft, the writing was on the wall that Tebow was no longer part of the team's plans in any capacity, and they promptly released him.

Tebow attempted just eight passes in 2012, and was sacked twice. 

His fate in the NFL is seemingly up in the air at the moment, with few teams viewing him as a legitimate option at quarterback. NFL.com's Marc Sessler listed a number of possible landing spots for the 25-year-old QB, with the consensus being that he could end up in the Canadian Football League.

Maybe it's time to put the Lingerie Football League on that list as well.
