Financially, Tebow’s future looks secure. Of his five corporate sponsors, three did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and two said they were undeterred by the quarterback’s departure from the Jets.
“[The deal] is not based solely on football and Tim exceeds his status as a football player,” TiVo spokesperson Steve Wymer said. “Hopefully, he’ll have a better season this coming year than he did last year, since this clearly this has been a crazy season with the NY Jets.”
SOUL electronics chief executive Lan Kennedy-Davis said her company was “100 percent behind Tim Tebow regardless of his team.”
“We support Tim, we like Tim, and he’s our ambassador because he stands for greatness — not just in football, but in what he does in his life,” she said.
