The NFL routinely sends out an update regarding the leading Pro Bowl voters overall and by position. The most recent update came earlier today, and it made me curious about the status of Tim Tebow.
So I asked. And the NFL answered.
Tebow currently is in fourth place among all AFC quarterbacks, behind Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The final roster, which will include three quarterbacks, will be determined by a combination of the fan voting, a vote of the players, and a vote of the coaches. Whether and to what extent the players and coaches believe in Tebowmania will determine whether he ultimately earns a spot on the team.
And even if he finishes fourth, he’ll likely make it — because Brady typically finds a way to avoid the assignment.
Meanwhile, the league office advises that Tebow’s jersey has moved from No. 11 to No. 6 via purchases made through NFLShop.com.
Tebowmaniacs can cast a vote (or two . . . or more) for Tebow at NFL.com/ProBowl.
