Allen Iverson Gets Lucrative Offer From Professional Indoor Soccer Team

Allen Iverson's name has been all over the news lately, as the former MVP has been looking into both the NBA D-League and overseas play as possible avenues back into the NBA. But this weekend, A.I. received a different kind of contract offer: one to play soccer.

The Rochester Lancers of the Major Indoor Soccer League are offering Iverson $20,000 per game to finish out the season on their roster, plus a bonus of $5,000 per goal scored.

"Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time," Lancers vice president Rich Randall said in a statement. "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."

Iverson is in dire financial needs -- a Georgia judge recently ordered his wages garnished in order to repay an $850,000 debt to his jeweler. He has been linked in rumors to both the D-League and potentially playing in Puerto Rico, but if the price is right, Iverson may have to consider crossing over and trying soccer.
