Tebow to Jags for PR Reasons?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida governor Gov. Charlie Crist
thinks Tim Tebow could be the answer to the Jacksonville Jaguars
attendance problems.

Crist said Monday that he's talked with the Jaguars ownership
about taking the celebrated Florida quarterback in the NFL draft
next April as a means to sell more season tickets and keep the team
from moving out of Jacksonville.

About 17,000 fans chose not to renew their season tickets this
year, many citing the economic climate. About 30,000 seats were
empty Sunday for Jacksonville's 23-18 victory over Houston.

Tebow, who grew up in Jacksonville, won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and led the Gators to a national championship last year.
