Tebow goes SWOOSH! Signs deal with Nike


Nike has signed Tim Tebow to a $300,000 endorsement contract. While that pretty low compared to the reported $90 million dollar deal Nike signed with LeBron James in 2003, it is pretty notable for an athlete who may not even be a first round draft pick in the NFL.
Tebow's number one spank supporter on the internet, Dan Shanoff puts it this way:

This is unprecedented. It is unprecedented for a rookie coming into the NFL who will, more likely than not, be a 2nd-round pick to get a monster endorsement deal from a Nike. It will be the biggest shoe/apparel deal that any NFL rookie in 2010 will sign. Including Sam Bradford.

But that's not where it ends: Not only will Tebow get the Nike deal, but he will get the EA deal (inevitably), as he will get the Gatorade deal. And that's just the obvious ones. Then there's the vitamin. The watch. The credit card. The automobile.


The number of endorsement deals Tebow gets may make headlines. But its the numbers and headlines Tebow makes on the gridiron that will matter. And those are the ones that will prove or disprove if all those endorsement deals will turn out to be money well spent.
