Tebow Watch: Hottest selling jersey
By Bill Williamson
The fascination with Tim Tebow continues.
Tebow’s No. 15 Denver Broncos jersey was the highest selling jersey in the NFL from April 1 to June 30. That is pretty impressive considering Tebow wasn’t in the NFL until late April. His jersey was the early leader right after the draft and has continued to stay hot into the summer.
Tebow’s jersey sales lead fellow quarterbacks Donovan McNabb (who changed teams in early April), Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and Brett Favre.
There are four other rookies in the top 20. Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is No. 8, St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford is No. 9, Dallas receiver Dez Bryant is No. 15 and Kansas City safety Eric Berry is No. 18.
