Tim Tebow is back in the NFL after nine years.
His return has ruffled many feathers in media circles.
And Tebow haters won’t like these numbers from the NFL.
Former Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow recently signed with his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars to try out at tight end.
Tebow announced in a statement:
“I want to thank the Jaguars for the opportunity to compete and earn the chance to be part of this team…I know it will be a challenge, but it is a challenge I embrace. I am dedicated to taking the direction of our coaching staff and learning from my teammates. I appreciate everyone’s support as I embark on this new journey.”
Tebow is attempting to make the switch from quarterback, and he has plenty of skeptics.
In addition to the skeptics, he also has flat-out haters who don’t like the fact he even got an opportunity.
The fact that Tebow wears his Christian faith on his sleeve in an ever-increasing secular culture doesn’t help with the antipathy against him from the media class.
And Tebow’s detractors won’t like the fact that his merchandise is the top seller at the NFL Shop.

Tebow’s nine-year hiatus from the NFL included a stint in the minor leagues in the New York Mets’ farm system, and the development of a production company for film and television projects.
Tebow also got married to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, so he has a lot going on even if the NFL tryout doesn’t go anywhere.
Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer—Tebow’s college coach—is willing to give Tebow a chance despite the backlash.
This is Meyer’s first time coaching at the NFL level, so his reputation is on the line if the Tebow experiment is a disaster.
Nevertheless, the Jaguars needed a tight end, and Meyer thought it was worth giving Tebow a shot at a roster spot.
Unsurprisingly, the left-wing sports media has turned the story into a negative and a commentary on Colin Kaepernick being “blackballed.”
In reality, Kaepernick burned every bridge on his way out the door.
When he was given a life raft in the form of a private workout for NFL teams, he blew it off to hold his own workout half an hour away.
Tebow isn’t yearning for the spotlight; he just wants to play competitive sports.
Kaepernick is swept up in being a communist revolutionary, and it shows in all of his actions.
