The Rochester Lancers of the Major Indoor Soccer League announced they have offered a contract to former NBA star Allen Iverson.

The Lancers have offered Iverson $20,000 per game,  with a bonus of $5,000 per goal scored, win bonuses and merchandise bonuses.  More than 12 goals are scored, on average, per game.

One caveat: The Lancers have only two games left this season.

"Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time," said Rich Randall, Lancers vice president.  "With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport."

There have been reports in recent days that Iverson has received an offer to play for a pro basketball team in Turkey but would rather remain in the U.S. Here is his chance!

If Iverson accepts the deal, the Lancers have also offered to host his friends and family through the duration of his stay.
