Tim Tebow To Jacksonville Would Be Biggest Offseason Move
CNBC.com | March 14, 2012 | 09:17 AM EDT

Tuesday afternoon turned out to be a busy day in the NFL. Vincent Jackson went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pierre Garcon joined the Washington Redskins and Brandon Marshall will be re-united with his former Broncos teammate Jay Cutler in Chicago.

And while the greater focus is on Houston Texans defensive end Mario Williams and the wooing of Peyton Manning, the offseason move that has the best chance to move the most money is undeniably Tim Tebow to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If Manning goes to Denver, Tebow could be traded. And there is no player in the NFL who would generate more for a team than Tim Tebow would for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Let’s show you why.

The Jaguars are one of eight NFL teams that had less than 93 percent of its seats filled (92.8%) last season, but when you consider that a tarp covers up more than 9,000 seats, the percentage capacity is actually 81 percent. That means that, outside of Cincinnati (which had 75.2% capacity), the Jacksonville Jaguars had the worst average attendance on a capacity basis.

Compare that to Denver, which essentially sells out their season from Day 1.

Not only did Tebow grow up in Jacksonville, he of course won two national championships and the Heisman Trophy at Florida, whose Gainesville campus is an hour and a half drive from Jacksonville.
