Chuck Norris is petitioning to get the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow because the Florida native could turn "that mediocre team into a championship one," the actor and martial artist wrote in an online ode.

"I have been following Tim since he became a QB for the University of Florida Gators, and I never have seen a more determined or inspiring athlete to play the game of football," Norris wrote in a 1,500-word manifesto on WorldNetDaily.

"So what team do I feel should give Tim the opportunity to excel as a quarterback and usher it to Super Bowl status? My present pick would be the Jacksonville Jaguars. Why? To put it simply, it's because Tim could help turn that mediocre team into a championship one. Tebow works miracles on the field, and his inclusion would embolden the spirit of the Jaguars' players and fans."

Tebow was released from the New York Jets in April after just one season with the team. He never lived up to the fanfare of his arrival and failed to unseat starter Mark Sanchez. According to official play-time documents, Tebow played in just 6.8 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps last season.

Since his release, there has been much speculation as to what Tebow will do next. He's reportedly been offered a coaching gig with the Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League) and a spot as a spokesman for the Vatican.

But Norris hopes Tebow, the "ultimate clutch player," will be picked up by the Jaguars, a move he claims will increase the team's revenue.

"Whatever you would pay Tebow would be recouped tenfold by the increase in attendance and the fan base," Norris wrote. "With Tim as the QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team would add thousands (if not tens of thousands) of additional fans to the stadium, including me — even though I don't live in Florida!"
