As the Broncos' prepare to open training camp, the team's veterans may have a little extra hazing ammo with which to to hit rookie quarterback Tim Tebow. That's because the charismatic first-round pick just signed on to a multi-year deal to be a spokesman for Jockey underwear.
According to a press release from Jockey, Tebow will "work with several of Jockey's lines, including the Jockey "Staycool" collection, which launches in spring 2011. Tebow will be featured in Jockey's catalog, TV and print advertisements and on jockey.com."
Tebow, whose Jersey has led the NFL in sales since the Broncos picked him in the first round of the NFL draft, has been sought after as a spokesman since joining the team.
In May, Tebow said that he had already turned down 7-figure endorsement deals because they he thought they may be a distraction from football.
