Tim Tebow has been all over social media since he arrived in Philadelphia. He makes the headlines again as his Eagles’ jersey made it to the 16th spot in NFLShop.com’s Top 25 best-selling jerseys for June.

New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham topped the list with quarterback Marcus Mariota ranking second and Tom Brady who ranked third.
Despite claiming to have upped his game, the 27-year-old quarterback may still be far from making it to the roster when the season starts, but that is not going to stop fans from buying his Eagles’ jersey from the online football apparel shop.
The Heisman Trophy winner’s jersey outsold Ndamukong Suh, Marshawn Lynch, and Tony Romo, who garnered the 17th, 20th, and 24th spot on the list respectively.
Although his jersey’s sales may not sound too high ranking, consider that his No. 11 jersey outsold plenty of big names in the NFL such as Drew Brees, LeSean McCoy, Richard Sherman, and Calvin Johnson to name a few.
The Tebow-mania is showing little to no signs of fading away to the fandom abyss even though his last game in the NFL was for the Jets in 2012.
Since then, he was signed by the Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly last April after impressing him in a workout. We’ve heard nothing but praise for the quarterback. Kelly even commended Tebow’s major improvement with his passing during the Eagles’ spring practices.
DeMarco Murray, 27 years old and 9th of NFLShop.com’s best-selling jerseys list, called Tebow a “good player” in an interview with USA Today. “A very hardworking guy,” The running back for the Eagles’ added. “He comes to work every day ready to compete, and that’s what you can expect from him.”
