Tim Tebow Leads NFL In Jersey Sales

Posted: Updated:

It's been over two months since the Denver Broncos shocked the NFL by selecting quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round of the NFL draft, and the hype surrounding the former Heisman Trophy winner hasn't subsided yet.

According to the latest figures, Tebow--who is currently listed as the third string quarterback on the Broncos' depth chart--still leads the entire NFL in jersey sales.

The Redskins' Donovan McNabb came in second in sales.

After a legendary career at the University of Florida, Tebow, was expected to be one of the most marketable players in the NFL despite concerns about his throwing motion and readiness to play in an NFL offense.

Tebow's appeal became clear on draft weekend when he sold more jerseys on draft weekend than any other rookie or current NFL player.
