Tim Tebow fuels lawsuit between Nike and Reebok

Tim Tebow fuels lawsuit between Nike and Reebok

Hyped by on March 28, 2012 Website:

Is there anything that New York Jets QB Tim Tebow can do that doesn’t garner an outrageous amount of interest? It appears now that by him being traded to the New York Jets has fueled a lawsuit between two massive, billion dollar corporations. Nike has filed a lawsuit against Reebok claiming that Reebok cannot use Tim Tebow’s name on New York Jets jerseys.

Nike becomes the official uniform provider of the NFL next season as they replace Reebok, but Nike claims that the apparel companies contract with the NFL expired on March 1, and Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets on March 21. However, according to a report in USA Today, Reebok’s agreement with the NFL expires on March 31.
