EXCLUSIVE: For one reason, the Denver Broncos starting quarterback’s NFL jersey is one of the best-selling in the country. I’ve learned that the Hollywood agency WME signed Tim Tebow for endorsements, public appearances, speaking engagements, TV, film, books, the works — even helping with his foundation. With his unorthodox NFL quarterback skills, very public religious devotion, and incredible team success (they made it far in this past season’s playoffs), Tebow has attracted tons of praise, criticism, and attention from the sports world and national media. He’s already been lampooned on Saturday Night Live.
He played college football at the University of Florida, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and appearing on BCS National Championship-winning teams in 2007 and 2009. After graduating, he was drafted by the Broncos as the 25th overall pick in 2010. Tebow is known as a dual-threat quarterback, adept at both rushing and passing. Plus he’s eye candy.
