Tim Tebow is in between jobs right now, but he's got some very loyal fans doing what they can to get him back in the game.

On Monday, Sept. 16, a small but supportive group of people gathered in Jacksonville, Fla., in front of the Jaguars' EverBank Field. They held signs encouraging the NFL team to add Tebow, who was released from the New England Patriots last month, to their roster.

It doesn't seem too likely, though, that Tebow will wind up playing quarterback in his home state, given that the local NFL team's general manager David Croswell said in January, "I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar—even if he is released."

Tebow is, however, a wanted man in Russia. Per the Los Angeles Times, the 26-year-old athlete has been offered $1 million to play in just two games for the Moscow Black Storm against the Moscow Patriots. Team owner Mikhail Zaltsman claimed he had "talked with [Tebow] personally and he wanted to go," but said the athlete's agents are "thinking of using him as a motiviational speaker. They don't want him to play football."

But according to Tebow's Twitter account, he has no plans of giving up on the game. When released from the Patriots on Aug. 31, he tweeted a thanks to the team and said he'd pray for their success. He also wrote that he "will remain in relentless pursuit... of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."

Keep the faith, Tim Tebow!
