A petition on President Barack Obama's "We the People" website asks the administration to pressure the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign quarterback Tim Tebow, who was recently released by the New York Jets.
"If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy," the petition argues.
Unfortunately for some fans, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell and team owner Shad Khan have both denied any interest in picking up the former University of Florida quarterback.
The petition, posted April 30, has only 58 signatures as of Sunday, far from the 100,000 signatures required for an official response from the White House.
Here's the petition in full:
Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy.Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start.Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger,7 game winning drives in just 16 games!
