NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Think you can eat one?

One day after Tim Tebow made his debut as a New York Jet, we had a chance to sample the “Jetbow” sandwich from the Carnegie Deli.

The famed deli introduced the sandwich the same day the Jets introduced the star backup QB. Like Tebow, it is full of goodness and aims to please.

The sandwich is 3.5 pounds of roast beef, pastrami, corned beef, American cheese, lettuce and tomato on white bread. The Jetbow is the first celeb sandwich Carnegie has ever made that’s topped with white bread and mayonnaise.

We were able to finish the sandwich — but it took 6 of us to do so. If you are able to eat one, Carnegie will give you a second for free!

If you’re interested in sampling the Tebow, it will cost you $22.22. Make sure to bring your appetite, a lot of your friends and your wallet!

If you’re wondering where the $22.22 price comes from, deli owner Sandy Levine said it’s from Tebow’s uniform number, 15, Mark Sanchez’s number 6, and $1.22 added for alliteration.

Will you try the ‘Jetbow?’ Let us know below.
