Former-New England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow has been offered $1m to play in Russia, according to CBS Sports.

Tebow, who spent two months with the Patriots before he was cut prior to the start of the NFL season, is currently a free agent and looking for a route back into the league.

And the report claims the Moscow Black Storm, a Russian team set to play in the American Football Championship of Russia semi-final that kicks off on September 28, have offered him a spot on the team.

"We have offered him [Tebow] $1m for two games," Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman told Russia Beyond The Headlines.

"I talked with him personally and he wanted to go. [His agents are] thinking of using him as a motivational speaker. They don't want him to play football."

The Black Storm face city rivals the Moscow Patriots in the championship semi-final, and Zaltsman wants to fly Tebow in to help the team reach the final, before a possible spot in the game's showpiece.

The report suggests Tebow, who spent a year with the New York Jets last season, will decline the opportunity.

Speculation has linked the former-Heisman winner with the Canadian Football League, but there are not too many suitors willing to work Tebow out at the moment.
