Orlando lawyer is running full-minute TV ads to persuade the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow

If this is a publicity stunt, then Orlando-based lawyer John Morgan deserves an award. Morgan has produced a minute-long ad in which he tries to persuade Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan to sign local legend Tim Tebow, and the thing is actually pretty decent. 

The problem is that winning the Heisman and winning national championships doesn't matter at this point, and neither does being a first-round pick. Winning games is only a small part of the grand formula used to assess quarterbacks, and Tebow's "class" and "character" can only take him so far. Being local shouldn't be a big factor either, but Morgan's strongest point comes when he refers to the simple reality that the team still struggles to sell itself. 

Oh, and the fact that Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are currently the top two quarterbacks on the depth chart.
