It seems unlikely that Ron Jaworski will be rooting for Alabama against Notre Dame in the BCS title game on Jan. 7. And it's definitely unlikely that Jaworski wants to ever be in the same room with Alabama Coach Nick Saban. Saban's name is one that comes up frequently when it comes to college coaches making the jump to the NFL next season. Saban coached the Miami Dolphins for a couple of years, and since leaving that job to take the Alabama reins, he has turned the Crimson Tide into an NCAA powerhouse.

Tim Tebow may not have a job in the NFL right now, but at least he has the support of a former NFL great, Ron Jaworski. The former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and part owner of the Philadelphia Soul told the Philadelphia Daily News that his Arena Football League team has offered Tebow a job. “One [criticism] of Tebow is that he is slow and methodical,” Jaworski said . “He would be forced to quicken it up in this league and it would be good training for him. You can learn a lot in this league.

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski, the new free agent, arrived in town Wednesday but not, as a Philadelphia TV station claimed, to try out with the Raiders. Jaworski checked into the Century Plaza, where the NFL Players Assn. is holding its convention, and announced he is here on union business. The Raiders say he isn't scheduled for a workout. However . . . Coach Tom Flores said that if he is in town, it might be nice if Jaworski stops by El Segundo.

The Chargers will look at veteran free-agent quarterback Ron Jaworski in a workout Thursday but apparently don't view him as competition for starter Dan Fouts. Jaworski, 36, who was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles after the 1986 season, recently tried out with the Raiders, and the Chargers will give him a look before the start of Friday's mini-camp. He also is scheduled to work out with the Seattle Seahawks.

Into an already uncertain Raider quarterback situation popped another prospect, Ron Jaworski, the 36-year-old former Philadelphia Eagle, who flew all the way from the East Coast for a workout with Coach Tom Flores and a chat with Al Davis Monday. The result? The Raiders say they won't decide anything until after next Tuesday's draft. "My original thought, I hoped to get it done (sign with a new team) as soon as possible," Jaworski said at the Raider offices after the workout.
