Broncos Tebow: Jersey Sales King

"Tim Tebow can't... lead the NFL in jersey sales as a rookie." Oh really?

Tebow crushed the opening weekend jersey sales after the NFL Draft, setting a new record by a rookie since they started recording it in 2006.

That bolsters a theory that many have scoffed at: Tebow will become the first rookie ever to lead the NFL in jersey sales over an entire season. Just wait.

(UPDATE: Not unsurprisingly, 30 percent of the sales are coming from Florida, according to CNBC's Darren Rovell. I'm actually surprised it's not higher.)


  1. Who said he couldn't lead the sales?

  2. For anyone interested, I posted a link to an article over at the TimTeblog Facebook page:

  3. Define normal took the words right out of my mouth.

  4. The fact that only 30% percent of sales is from Florida surely is more impressive Dan, and backs up your theory even more. It shows that Tebow has a much wider appeal.

    To illustrate my point, a tiny fraction of that 70% will be my jersey sale from the UK :o)

  5. LOL...just wait until the losing starts.
