FLORHAM PARK – “I don’t live in Hoboken,” Tim Tebow told reporters last week. “I’ve never even been in Hoboken.”
According to reports on a variety of media, including Newsday.com, NJ.com, and The Star Ledger, the New York jet’s backup quarterback has put to rest rumors in recent weeks he has taken an apartment in the Mile Square City.
Tebow’s denial came as he met with reporters at the jets training facility here.
In April, the New York Post reported the newest Jets QB was renting a place at 2 Constitution Court, a 13-story luxury condo building on the waterfront uptown.
Even before that report rumors had been circulating, and even touched off an exchange between a prankster with the handle “HobokenTimTebow” and Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who issued a Twitter note threatening to alert the authorities and demanding that the newest Hoboken resident be given his privacy.
After which, Hoboken spokesman Juan Melli had to issue an “Oops, wait a minute!” follow up saying the mayor did not actually know if Tebow actually did live in town.
Well, now we know.
