NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Earlier this week, a group of Jacksonville fans petitioned President Barack Obama to force the Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow.

Surprise! It failed.

Plan B: Enter well-known Florida lawyer John Morgan, who recently created a video aimed at convincing Jaguars owner Shad Khan that the quarterback would be a fit in Jax.

“Tebow is one of us. He has class, character and he’s a winner. Let’s win, Mr. Khan,” Morgan said in the minute-long clip. “Once upon a time, so-called experts probably doubted your potential and now look at you. Give our guy a shot.”

Morgan — of Morgan & Morgan — even managed to fit in his slogan, “For the people.”

“Let’s do this, Mr. Khan, for the people. Let’s win,” he said.

Morgan’s campaign is “scheduled for heavy rotation in north Florida media markets,” according to Deadspin.

Morgan was referenced in a column Wednesday by Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com, who accused die-hard Tebow supporters of loving the quarterback’s career “to death.”

“And what do you know? The story has changed from idiots trolling Tebow to even bigger idiots doing exactly what they don’t want: making it difficult for Tebow to continue in the NFL — and impossible in Jacksonville, just down the road from Nease High and the University of Florida, where the Tebow legend started and then flourished,” Doyel wrote.

The Jaguars have made it clear they have no plans to bring in Tebow, who was released by the Jets last week.

The 25-year-old was given his choice between New York and Jacksonville as Denver was readying to pull the trigger on a trade in March 2012, Broncos exec John Elway confirmed to WFAN radio earlier this year.
