Move over Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, T-Mobile's now got Tim Tebow talking up the Uncarrier.
Tebow will star in series of ads that will air during the Super Bowl -- the carrier's first such ads. The former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback, who is still seeking work with a National Football League team, cheekily touts the freedom that comes with not having a contract.
