Owner talks Tebow, winning and jerseys

Jets owner Woody Johnson claimed Tuesday that the addition of Tim Tebow last month hasn't put any additional money in the team's coiffers.

"Not really," Johnson said on the Fox Business Network. "Jerseys aren’t really our main line of business. Our main line of business is winning games. I expect if we do well, we will continue to sell. We’re pretty well sold out on PSLs despite what you read about."

One day after the Tebow news conference, the Jets sent an e-mail to potential customers, advertising the availability of PSLs.

Johnson, in a light moment, took credit for the Tebow trade. Asked if it was his decision, Johnson said with a smile, "If it’s a good decision, if he turns out to be a great player, I will take full accountability for that."

He added that Rex Ryan and GM Mike Tannenbaum "make those decisions."

Mixing politics and sports, Johnson said Tebow reminds him of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

"I think he’s a lot like Governor Christie," he said. "He is what he is. He’s true to his beliefs; he’s not afraid to tell you what he believes in. I think he will be a very positive influence in the locker room and I think he will help us win a lot of games."
