JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tim Tebow’s supporters are stepping up their game as the NFL’s regular season hits the home stretch.

Someone purchased an ad in Monday’s Florida Times-Union newspaper asking the Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan to sign the Jacksonville native and former standout at the University of Florida:

DEAR MR. KHAN, SIGN TEBOW & WE WILL FILL THE STADIUM!

SIGNED, THE CITIZENS OF JACKSONVILLE

ESPN’s Darren Rovell confirmed with the newspaper’s ad sales department that the ad was purchased, but the paper declined to say by whom.

That’s just the latest bit of politicking for Tebow by fans around Jacksonville. A small group meets outside EverBank Field every Monday at 3:16 p.m. for three hours and 16 minutes. Khan stopped by one of the meetings and spoke with participants for a few moments.

Orlando attorney John Morgan, a UF law school graduate, paid for radio commercials that urged the Jaguars and Khan to sign Tebow.

There also is a billboard located about a mile northwest of EverBank field that has intermittently carried a message asking the Jaguars and Khan to sign Tebow.

About 90 minutes before the Jaguars’ home game against Arizona on Sunday, a plane flew around the stadium pulling a banner that read, “WE WANT TEBOW.”

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell has said several times the team is not interested in signing Tebow.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Nov. 10 that Tebow has hired broadcast agent Nick Khan to represent him to help him pursue a college football broadcasting job if he is unable to sign with an NFL team.

    Today’s Hot Topic Question: Is this from a Tebow Fanatic? Or from an Occupy Tebower?

    No doubt the talk is going to be a leap of “logic” that billboards and newspaper ads leads to white powder in Jersey.

    I lean toward the latter. (How many Tebow Fans would be thinking “Jersey City”?) But be ready for the tsunami of assumption on the former.
