ROME (CBSNewYork/AP) — Tim Tebow has been offered a four-month contract by the Italian federation for American football, and the Milano Seamen are hoping to sign the free agent quarterback.

Excerpts of an offer sent by federation president Leoluca Orlando to Tebow’s representatives were posted on the federation’s website Thursday.

“The offer has been made to his agent and now we’re waiting for a response,” Seamen president Marco Mutti told The Associated Press. “We would be more than happy to have him.”

A federation spokesman, James Dewar, told AP that the offer is for $200,000 and that it was sent Wednesday on the recommendation of a sponsor.
