New York Jets cut quarterback Tim Tebow

Reuters, NEW YORK

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.
