Tim Tebow fans rally in Jacksonville, but Moscow wants him (+video)
Tim Tebow fans want him to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. But Tim Tebow also has a $1 million offer to play two games in Russia.
For real Tim Tebow fans, that timing will require no explanation.
It's a nod to the fact that Tebow used to paint Scripture numbers on his face in eyeblack when he played at the University of Florida. And It's a reference to one of his favorite Bible passages, John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
About 40 people showed up for what is expected to be a weekly rally to get the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars to sign Tebow as their quarterback.
“This is a perfect time to bring in Tebow,’’ said group founder James Stewart, according to Jacksonville.com. Stewart started a website called jags-tebow.com, was carrying signs reading, “JAGS TEBOW, WHY NOT?’’
