ROME — Tim Tebow has been offered a four-month contract by the Italian federation for American football.

The Milano Seamen say they would be “more than happy” 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.

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

A federation spokesman tells the AP that the offer is for $200,000.

Tebow was cut by the New England Patriots before this NFL season. He would be the most prominent player to appear in the eight-team Italian league — by far.

The league is divided into two divisions. The other teams are located in Ancona, Bologna, Bolzano, Parma, Reggio Emilia and Rome. Milan has two teams.

The season begins in March and concludes with the Italian Super Bowl in July.

In last season’s title game, the Parma Panthers beat the Seamen 51-28.

The Seamen have the league’s largest stadium, with 8,000 seats. Fashion designer Giorgio Armani is a former owner of the team.
