Tim Tebow is still looking for job after his release from the New York Jets. Recent rumors of Tebow heading to the Miami Dolphins were debunked, but there appears to be one group of fans hellbent on getting the The Biggest Loser guest star on their team. In fact, some Tebow fans have gone as far to plea to President Obama!
Tim Tebow may not have an NFL team yet, but there appears to be one group of fans who are hoping that President Obama can help land Tebow a job for their team – The Jacksonville Jaguars. Jaguars’ fans have started a petition to President Obama, titled Call NFL Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and tell him to stop ignoring the Jaguars fans and sign Tim Tebow!
The petition, which needs at least 100,000 signatures, reads: “Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy. Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start.Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger,7 game winning drives in just 16 games!”
As of this morning, the petition has only 293 signatures, and has until May 30 to collect the remaining 99,707 needed. If you would like to sign the petition, click here.
