Well Tebow finally signed a contract, just not with the Denver Broncos. On July 27th, Tim Tebow signed a multi-year contract to be the spokesperson for the Jockey brand.
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. Jockey and Tebow will also collaborate on unique content for social media platforms.
“Tim is a highly gifted athlete with a positive attitude and an admirable character,” remarked Jockey Chairman and CEO Debra S. Waller. “We at Jockey see a very bright future with Tim, and believe that he is an excellent representative for the brand. Tim is genuine, smart and driven and those qualities align well with Jockey. We look forward to building a long and collaborative relationship with him in the coming years.”
“I’m excited to represent the Jockey brand and to work with such an innovative company,” said Tebow. “I’ve long been a fan and consumer of Jockey, and think they make a quality product with a great fit. I’m looking forward to a great relationship with such a respectable company.”
This is a big step for Tebow. I like this decision because Jockey isn't a negative brand that has a bad public viewing. Jockey made a smart choice considering Tebow's success with selling Jerseys and other merchandise.
The contract details are still a secret mostly due to Jockey being a private company. If any news comes out regarding it, I will definetly post it.
