Tim Tebow's dream is to be a quarterback in the NFL again, but the question that some NFL fans are wondering is, would Tebow want to play in the A-11 Football League.

"We would love to have Tim Tebow join our league," said A-11 CEO and Commissioner Scott McKibben to San Francisco Chronicle adding. "Tim Tebow stands for everything we think the game ought to represent -- character, values and role-modeling for young players."

According to CBS Sports, The A-11 Football League is a new spring professional football league promising to play the game of football the old fashion way.

In addition, it appears there are currently six teams (with two more coming), including the Los Angeles Express, New Jersey Generals, Dallas Wranglers, Chicago Staggs, Tampa Bay Bandits and San Francisco Bay Area Sea Lions, according to the CBS Sports report.

McKibben was a former executive director of the Rose Bowl before creating the new football league.

In addition, former Dallas Cowboys linebacker, scout, and football executive Michael Keller is the A-11 President and Chief Operating Officer.

ESPN, Tebow's recent employer, is presently set to air two A-11 games on its network. One game will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on May 17. The other game will be played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on June 5, reported to Mercury News.

"We have made an offer to Tim Tebow," said McKibben to San Francisco Chronicle. "We've had probably three or four discussions with people in the Tebow camp. We'd love to have Tim Tebow join our league. we think that if Tim came to play in the spring, he could still very much honor his obligations to ESPN."
