"@TimTebow wins it all this year. @Jockey fans win $1MM of FREE underpants. #Unforgettablefeelings," Jockey tweeted on its official account Friday.
The rules page reveals that if Tebow's Broncos win the Super Bowl, one grand prize winner will receive $15,000 cash and 40,000 others will receive a $25 Jockey gift card. The approximate retail value of winnings total $1,015,000, Jockey said.
Tebow has been a polarizing figure among professional football fans this year as many have criticized his unconventional throwing motion and viability as a permanent starting quarterback.
The Broncos will face New England in Foxboro, Mass. on Saturday as Tebow and his teammates look for another surprise playoff victory against the two-touchdown favorite Patriots.
