Right after the NFL Draft is over, the first overall pick or the top player whose name had been bantered about for months usually has the hottest jersey in the NFL.
It’s not usually a 33-year-old.
However, this year, newly-inked Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tim Tebow will probably be the most talked about player in the NFL until he either walks away or is released.
The Jaguars announced the ‘official’ signing of Tebow on Thursday, and the team welcomed him along with QB Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne on the cover of their merchandise page.
The jersey that’s being sold is a black Tebow No. 85 jersey. There’s no word on whether you can return the jersey if, in fact, the former Denver Broncos quarterback is released.
If you click on the Tebow jersey, you get the following message: “This is a special event item. Orders containing this item will be shipped separately. This item will be shipped 2-4 weeks after the player’s number is officially confirmed by the NFL.”
Reports say that the Jaguars are technically not the ones selling the jerseys. Instead, they are being sold by Fanatics.com, another merchandise provider of the NFL.
