If you want to own the hottest NFL jersey this offseason you need #85 for the Jacksonville Jaguars. It belongs to, now tight end hopeful and former NFL player, Tim Tebow. According to the jersey rankings supplied by FOX Sports, Tebow's teal jersey is the league's top seller. His black jersey is the #2 best seller. Why is Tebow so popular? Well, aside from his good looks and beach-ready physique, he quarterbacked The University of Florida to a national title in 2008. He was also part of the 2006 National Champion Gator's team. In 2008 as a sophomore he won The Heisman Trophy. He got drafted by The Denver Broncos and led them to the AFC West title and a playoff win, in OT, over Pittsburgh. But he didn't stick in Denver. He would play for the New York Jets, The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles all the while never really earning praise from players and coaches. His career path also saw Tebow attempt a career in professional baseball. He played left field and designated hitter for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, a Double-A minor league team in the Mets organization. He seemed to be tagged "pretty good" but "not good enough". He's now trying to make a pro football comeback with the Jaguars who are being coached by his former college coach Urban Meyer.
Part of Tebow's appeal is clearly that he seems to be a kind, friendly, generous, devoutly Christian man. One you'd like to have date your daughter (Sorry, he's taken) and one that could have a strong influence in the locker room.
Former OSU Buckeye Justin Fields will be sporting the leagues third, fourth and fifth best sellers: The Chicago Bears #1 jersey in navy, orange and white respectively.
Rounding out the top 10 best selling NFL jerseys are Tom Brady's white Buccaneers jersey at number six, Steelers rookie RB Najee Harris is ranked seventh, Chargers QB Justin Herbert's dark blue jersey is eighth, Patrick Mahomes' home red Chiefs jersey is ninth followed by Aaron Rodgers green Packers Jersey at ten. For the record Tebow's teammate Trevor Lawrence has the fourteenth best selling jersey, his black Jaguars jersey sporting the number 16.
