Mike Florio: Tim Tebow Was Only Signed By Jaguars to Sell Jerseys


Dan Patrick: “Why does the Tim Tebow thing bring about anger?”

Mike Florio: “It started with the baseball thing for me. I have no problem with him playing in the NFL, he’s a first round draft pick. Josh McDaniels rolled the dice and it kind of worked, he got to the playoffs. Horrible inaccurate, figured out a way to win close games from time-to-time, a magical run in 2011. There’s a certain point where you just gotta move on. I got no problem, I’m a capitalist. The Mets thing was about making money and I feel like this thing is about making money, so don’t tell me it’s about football when it’s about making money. I think it’s about Jacksonville, jerseys, tickets, excitement, and not about football.”

Listen to Mike Florio of ‘Pro Football Talk’ join The Dan Patrick Show to explain why he thinks Tim Tebow is such an incredibly polarizing figure, and why he thinks there was such ‘outrage’ by many in NFL circles when news broke that the Jaguars were planning on signing the 33-year-old Tebow to reunite with his former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer.

Check out the video above as Florio details why he thinks this Tebow-to-Jacksonville thing is simply a money grab.
