Orlando lawyer John Morgan has paid for radio spots urging the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow.
Morgan’s ad began airing on Tuesday in Jacksonville, report Pro Football Talk and the Orlando Sentinel. Morgan tells listeners that Tebow played on two championship teams and says Jaguars owner Shahid Khan should “give our guy a shot.”
Morgan is a University of Florida law grad, while Tebow played football at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
“Tebow is one of us,” Morgan says. “He has class, character, and he’s a winner. Let’s win, Mr. Khan. Once upon a time, so-called experts probably doubted your potential, and now look at you.” A video version of the ad is posted on YouTube.
Khan said at an NFL Career Development Symposium that he was intrigued by the interest in Tebow, but implied that he is leaving personnel decisions to his general manager, NFL.com reports.
