Florida lawyer's radio ad urges Jags to sign Tim Tebow

Orlando attorney John Morgan claims the mantra "For The People."

Morgan, a University of Florida law school graduate, spoke on behalf of local Tebowites on Tuesday when he started running radio commercials urging Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan to sign Tim Tebow, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The ad, posted on the attorney's YouTube page, implies Tebow is the answer to what ails the Jags' struggling franchise.

"Tebow is one of us. He has class, character and he's a winner. Let's win, Mr. Khan. Once upon a time, so-called experts probably doubted your potential, and now look at you. Give our guy a shot. I'll even buy that box you tried to sell me. Remember this: You can't TiVo Tebow. Let's do this Mr. Khan. For the people. Let's win."

Khan doesn't sound like he's ready to bow to the pressure from attorneys or presidential petitions. The Jaguars owner told NFL.com's Kimberly Jones on Tuesday that he plans to let general manager Dave Caldwell make the personnel decisions.

"My goal was to get the couple of key people, Dave Caldwell, Gus (Bradley), in and really empower them to do the right thing," Khan said. "So I think they're over 3,000 now professional football players in the league. Who they decide to pick, they need to come up with the best players who's gonna put us in a position to win."

While everyone in the Tebow discussion seems to disagree on what that "right thing" for the Jaguars is, the only important opinion at this point is that of Caldwell.
