Tim Tebow Leads in NFL Jersey Sales

For all of our friends in Jacksonville who continue to insist that drafting quarterback Tim Tebow wouldn’t have helped cement the Jaguars in place for the next decade or longer, here’s the ultimate rebuttal.

Darren Rovell of CNBC reports that the league leader in jersey sales made through NFLShop.com for the period of April 1 through June 30 is none other than Mr. Tebow. And that’s not just among rookies — it’s among all NFL players.

Considering that he wasn’t even on any NFL team for a third of the reporting period, it shows that Tebow brings to the table the kind of entry-level marketing punch not seen since Reggie Bush was taken No. 2 overall in 2006.

Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb finished at No. 2, followed by Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Vikings quarterback Brett Favre (who still hasn’t committed to playing in 2010) finished at No. 4, No. 5, and No. 6, respectively.
