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.)

  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)
