Reebok/Tim Tebow Jersey Lawsuit Settled

The battle over Tim Tebow shirts and jerseys has finally been resolved.

Reebok has quit their in its effort to sell new Jets Tebow jerseys and T-shirts. The terms of a settlement with Nike were disclosed Tuesday.

Reebok must eliminate from the sales chain any Tebow clothing it manufactured after the quarterback’s trade last month from the Denver Broncos to the Jets.

Nike had sued in Manhattan, saying Reebok was infringing on its licensing rights.

Nike spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi says the company is ”pleased to have reached a mutually agreeable resolution.”
