Jets Owner Surprised By Amount Of Tebow Coverage

Jets owner Woody Johnson says he is a bit surprised by the “enormity of the coverage” backup

Johnson says Tuesday during the team’s training camp practice that he knew there would be an increase in the amount of media interest after the Jets acquired Tebow from Denver in March, but “even by our standards, this is pretty amazing.” He embraces the attention, though, saying “we’re in a media business.”

Johnson, who arrived in Cortland on Monday night, says Tebow has not had a major impact on the team’s marketing and sales, adding that he doesn’t know “if any single player does that.”


Johnson also guaranteed that the Jets would be sold out for all home games this season.
