On Sunday, Tim Tebow earned his first NFL start. On Monday, he signed a contract with FRS Health Energy Drinks.
The timing, although unplanned, couldn’t have been better.
“I’d love to say it’s like ‘of course you were that smart,’ but we were planning to announce this week anyway,” Carl Sweat, CEO of the nutritional supplement company, said. “We have had faith from the beginning about what he could do, whether he was a starter today, tomorrow, or down the line, we believed he would be a significant figure and have a great career. But we couldn’t have planned on it this fast.”
As part of the deal, Tebow will get a part ownership in the company. “Virgin Air” might soon be able to afford his own private plane.
