Tim Tebow Hires Agent Jimmy Sexton

About a week after the conclusion of the Sugar Bowl (the end of Tim Tebow‘s college eligibility), he announced that he will sign with Jimmy Sexton to represent him. While active, college players are prohibited from dealing with sports agents so you can bet that immediately following his last game Tim had dozens of agents calling his phone. Tebow probably had the pick of any agent he wanted. He’ll like command first round dollars and will be looking at a ton of marketing and promotional deals. He’s an agent’s dream come true.

Sexton is a Memphis, Tennessee based agent who represents several NFL players, notably Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, Dallas Cowboys Tight Tend Jason Witten and San Diego offensive lineman Marcus McNeil. Sexton also represents South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Alabama coach Nick Saban. So you can see he has some very prominent athletes and coaches under him. That’s a good sign.

I’m glad Tebow didn’t go with someone like Drew Rosenhaus, who is just terribly difficult to deal with and always has players who hold out of camp. That’s not good for the player or the team.

We’ll probably be seeing Tim a lot in the coming months on TV, radio and on the internet. His agent will have him doing interviews and workign the media – it’s all part of getting his name out there for the NFL teams to see. I’d also expect them to announce an official autograph signing day very soon.

    The Senior Bowl has a meet-the-players day where all the players are available for pictures and autographs. I expect long lines for Tebow.

    We wish only the best for Tim in the Senior Bowl. I know he is praying for the people in Haiti and would like to request his fans to do so, as well.

    Dear Mr.Sexton —
    Due to the realistic possibility/probability that Tim Tebow will in all likelihood not catch on with an NFL team as a q.b., you might want to talk with Tim about being flexible to play a tight end position in the NFL which, with his size and atheltic ability he would do well at. The Green Bay Packers are in need of a tight end, so you might want to contact G.M. Ted Thompson in this regard. And, who knows, the Packers could also list him as a 3rd or 4th string q.b.

    Buzzy Says : I think it is QB or Not
