Quarterback Tim Tebow remains unemployed in the NFL but one of the most recognizable personalities in the State of Florida is now taking to the airwaves in an attempt to convince the Jacksonville Jaguars they need to acquire him for the 2013 season. Orlando based personal trial attorney John Morgan, of the law firm Morgan and Morgan is purchasing television advertisements trying to convince Jaguars owner Shahid Khan to bring Tebow back to his hometown.
Anyone living in Florida is familiar with Morgan. You cannot escape him, he’s everywhere. Billboards. Radio. Television. He’s usually on the back cover of local phonebook as well. He saturates every Florida market. His wife is an attorney at the firm. He even employs the former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist.
His advertisements come off in a very benign manner, illustrating that he is the hardest working attorney in the state and he’s doing all this hard work, “for the people”, his signature tagline. Of course his advertisements outline just all the various ways people of Florida can sue everyone else and his firm generates a very healthy cut of everything they recover “for the people”.
The purchase of these ads, which will be run in the Jacksonville market, are not on accident. Morgan is a graduate of the University of Florida, Tebow’s alma mater.
Tebow has been linked to the Jaguars for some time now, but the team continues to deny interest. Morgan even throws out a jab at the Jaguars owner, stating that if he signed the southpaw, he’d buy a luxury box at the stadium.
Morgan has become one of the largest power brokers in the State of Florida by utilizing the airwaves, now let’s see just how powerful he really is and whether or not he can influence an owner of an NFL franchise into changing his mind. You can watch the ad for yourself.
