Tebow picks WME over CAA for non-football deals

When CAA absorbed agent Jimmy Sexton last year, the superagency brought under its tent one of the biggest potential marketing powerhouses in all of sports:  Tim Tebow.

Given that CAA attracts plenty of sports clients via its long history of doing non-sports deals for its actors and other artists, most assumed Tebow would want CAA to handle his off-field interests.

Instead, he has hired William Morris Endeavor, according to HollywoodReport.com (via SportsBusiness Daily).  Per the report, WME will handle “endorsements, books, personal appearances, and any television or movie roles that come his way.”

Or, as the case may be, that WME will actively pursue.

Tebow, whose off-field activities previously were managed, we’re told, by his brother and a college friend, has been trying to avoid creating the impression that he’s anything other than “one of the guys,” turning down late-night talk shows and an invitation to host Saturday Night Live.  It appears, however, that the opportunities will continue to be sought and/or pursued.

Even if fellow CAA client Brady Quinn thinks that doesn’t seem very humble.

    Somewhere the Broncos fanbase just threw up a little.

    There’s that fame moster again. It strikes fast and leaves a path of destruction in its wake.

    But when will the video of this selection process be released? The ESPN video of the “unselfish” Tebow making groups grown men kiss his ring for the privledge of working for his was AWESOME!

    thumbs up if you thought it said “WWE” at first.

    Tim has sought the media spotlight since pre-college. Video cameras documenting all his good deeds were a little unnecessary for someone claiming humility…I’m thinking Brady Quinn had a point.

    He probably turned down SNL because they made fun of him in a skit previously, which was pretty damn funny in my opinion.

    well since according to you “experts” who have never played a down of football in your life backyard or otherwise he won’t be in nfl very long so he should take every oppertunity he gets outside of football. I love how he turned the oppertunities you mentioned but you reported it and not him so it’s his fault that you know about it right? just stop reporting every move he makes at least till the season starts please!

    WHEW! What a breath of fresh-air this kid has been. He is being overly publicized as is everyone else on my TV/radio. We know one thing, that he’ll never reset the “Days without an arrest” counter. I just can’t say the same for all of the rest of the hoodlums in the NFL.

    Could we add another ticker on the PFT sidebar that reads “Days without a Tebow story”?

    And while were’re at it, could we try to keep the count above the “Days without an arrest” count?

    Tim prays that they just show him the money.

    “One of the biggest potential marketing powerhouses of all sports.”
    I think you owe it to your readership to let them know who is supplying whatever it is you are smoking. Or have WME already been “in touch” (know what I mean, nudge nudge,wink, wink)

    WE finally got rid of the Farve talk over and over now Tebow.
