That Didn't Take Long. Tim Tebow Already Leading The NFL In Jersey Sales

Like most in the NFL, Broncos fans love their jerseys. Apparently so do fans of the Florida Gators. Approximately three months after being drafted 25th by Denver, Tim Tebow is now leading the NFL in jersey sales, more than three weeks before he has taken the field for training camp.

It has been three months, and Tim Tebow still hasn't taken a single (real) snap under center for the Denver Broncos, yet he's leading the league in jersey sales.

A list of the best-selling player jerseys on NFLShop.com, from April 1 through June 30, has the former Heisman Trophy winner and 25th overall pick in this year's draft at the top, ahead of Donovan McNabb, who changed teams from the Eagles to the Redskins, and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees.

Apparently Invesco Field is going to be awash with brand new Tim Tebow jerseys when they take the field for the first preseason game on August 15th. If I can just make one small request to the female fans of the Broncos...  Let's just stick with the standard white, orange or blue and stay away from the "Zebra Field Flirt" and "Pink Sweetheart" jerseys this year, OK?
