Tim Tebow posed for a picture with the Broadway cast of “Rock of Ages” on Saturday.

– In other Teebs news, the NFL has stepped in to put the kibosh on that “MY Jesus” shirt that Tebow’s people had no business fighting in the first place.

Guess he’s gonna have to stick with getting followers the old fashioned way by continuing to troll LeSean McCoy.
– The Lions have blocked receiver Titus Young from participating in OTAs for sucker punching Louis Delmas last week. If only Kellen Winslow had thought of that…
