Tebow thinks it’s not time to cash in off the field

For Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, the iron may never be hotter than it is right now.  He’s become the biggest name in football, putting him in position for maximum exposure and, perhaps more importantly, millions of dollars when it comes to his off-field earning potential.  The recent move by his agent, Jimmy Sexton, to powerhouse entertainment agency CAA ties Tebow to an even larger machine for making marketing money.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, however, Tebow plan to move very, very slowly when it comes to cashing in on his wildfire popularity.  (He already has marketing deals with companies like Jockey and FRS, and he published an autobiography earlier this year.)  Tebow has turned down multiple national media and endorsement opportunities, from late-night talk shows to an opportunity to host Saturday Night Live in the offseason.

Tebow desperately wants to remain one of the guys.  To do so, he believes he needs to avoid doing things that would be perceived as something that puts him apart from and/or above his teammates.

Of course, that’s already happening via the intense media coverage of Tebow.  But those things are happening without Tebow’s direct involvement.  He’s just doing what he does, without seeking out the spotlight.

Still, he can’t delay the process of profiting from his position for too long.  At some point, there inevitably will be a new flavor of the month.

Then again, given what Tebow has been doing, the debut of the next big thing could be delayed by a decade or longer down the Rocky (Mountain) Road.

  2. He could always emulate Brady and include a few other Broncos in his ads.

    Or the Broncos players minus Tebow could do a Amex
    commercial like in the movie Major League, “Do you know us? ….

  3. Really getting sick of this guy. Though I hope he ends up playing the Steel Curtain in the playoffs, we can give him the Colt McCoy Special!

  4. Chiefs fan here. Tebow. Great guy. Really good Running Back, not a good QB. Annoying at times. But, Id want him dating my sister or daughter, at least I THINK I do. Unless he is a fake of course.

    That being said, I would NOT want him as the Chiefs QB, even though he is winning. I just don’t think he is the long term solution or meant to be a Pro QB.

  5. I hate the never ending media coverage of the guy.. but I believe he will stay humbled. He should take the SNL gig though.. take his offensive line with him like Peyton did a few years ago. It would be refreshing to see him joke around a little bit rather than continue to say what the Lord wants him to say each and every time he has a microphone in front of him.

    The media circus is crazy for the kid, but I would rather hear about this young man doing things the right way than hear about more stuff like the Penn State scandal.

  6. Teebs will get exposed as the backup he is…. Either he improves in the pocket dramatically really soon…. Or the endorsement dollars will fall off a cliff when he’s holding a clipboard next year…

    Major mistake not taking the money while he can….

  7. Just shows how real Tebow is. This may be the hottest he ever is, and he’s more concerned about his Trammates than a few $$$. He is the consummate teammate and leader.

  8. Seriously this guy is a joke
    He sucks
    And Jesus stop talking about him
    NOBODY CARES
    And if you do well….
    Cant wait to see this guy implode in the playoffs if he gets there
    The Peter Mcneeley of the NFL

  9. Eagle671 is simply bitter because his quarterback is incapable of completing a full season upright.

    That would be the true “Dream” for that team…..

  10. Hopefully this loss shows that T-Bone is not the “Divine Hand of God.” He had a good game for him, 11 out of 22 with 2 rushing td’s playing running back. But they were defeated handily by Brady & Co. KC beats Green Bay! And Chargers beat the Ravens!Anything can happen now in the AFC West, the pundits said all along it would come down to the end. And it seems they were right. Too bad the Raiders choked, would’ve been nice to make playoffs for the deceased Al Davis. That dream is all but over. Injuries and some coaching mistakes cost them the division.I am an interested outside observer at this point, since my team is apparently done.Merry F’ing Christmas.

  11. …televangelists taught us one thing, it’s pretty easy to get gullible religious people enrich you if you tell them what they want to hear about their imaginary friend in the sky!
