CORTLAND, N.Y. -- One walk to Times Square is all it takes to see evidence of the Tim Tebow brand. When a trade from Denver became evident, the Jets' backup quarterback leaned to New York over Jacksonville, and plenty speculated it was due in part to the platform that Madison Avenue offers.

Now, a few months after Tebow became a Jet, he said he hasn't added any more endorsements to a list that includes Jockey, Nike and FRS energy drinks.

"I don't really think so," he said. "Certain ones, but nothing that I feel like I accepted or started since after (coming to New York)."

He has recently added SOUL Electronics to the lineup of endorsements, but his relationship with the brand was forged before he was in New York.

"SOUL was in the works but just now coming out," Tebow said.

Tebow also said the profile of New York athletes wasn't a factor in picking the city.

"As far as marketing and endorsement-wise? No, that didn't really play into anything," Tebow said. "It's a big market, so that's great, but it's really something that I'm not worried about.

"If I believe in a product and they believe in me, then I think there can be some great relationships. But I like really believing in the products that I endorse so it's authentic and it's genuine and it's real, and I feel like I have that, you know?"
