Tebow's Performance Leads To More Jersey Sales
CNBC Sports Business Reporter
A surprising 5-1 record as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos has fans buying #15 Tim Tebow jerseys with confidence.
Tebow had the second best selling jersey on NFLShop.com last week only behind Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and he's moved up five spots this month alone to the sixth best selling jersey from April through November on the league's online store.
Tebow was the best selling jersey last year from draft day through December 3, but he finished in March at No. 5 due to the fact that he wasn't playing and the Broncos not making the playoffs. Lack of play resulted in Tebow's jersey falling to the No. 24 spot through the end of September, but his success as a starter has turned things around.
Through November, Rodgers and his teammate Clay Matthews take the first two spots, while Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is at No. 3. Tom Brady and Drew Brees wrap up the top 5.
Of interest is the fact that Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh, who was recently suspended for two games, is No. 12 on the list ahead of Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, both of whom have had on and off type of seasons.
