It has been days since a company last attempted to generate interest based off of former NY Jets quarterback, Tim Tebow.
Fear not, the Storm Stoppers are here.
Orlando-based Storm Stoppers, noted for being an alternative to plywood for hurricane window protection, has offered the polarizing quarterback a $30,000 dollar endorsement deal. Under the deal, Tebow would receive $20,000 for a six month stint with Storm Stoppers. Under the deal, Tebow would be required to make public appearances with the company at Hurricane expos for the 2013 hurricane season.
The hurricane season begins June 1st…which would probably cut into Tebow’s training camp time, were he to accept the offer.
Storm Stoppers would also make a special $10,000 donation of their products to the Tim Tebow foundation to protect the foundation’s Jacksonville facilities.
“We see a very natural fit between Tim’s efforts to reinforce children and families through his foundation and Storm Stoppers’ efforts to protect the family home,” said Smith. “The NFL and others might not see his true value right now, but it’s not lost on Storm Stoppers.”
Tebow had a 2012 base salary of $1.1 million dollars.
Storm Stoppers have not yet received a response from the Tebow camp.
