quote:

Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette on Wednesday signed a multi-year deal with Under Armour that a source tells ESPN is one of the most valuable endorsement contracts ever for an NFL rookie.

"We have a roster of athletes that we choose and we're never going to be that company that just collects athletes just to have the most," said Ryan Kuehl, the company's senior vice president of sports marketing. "We look for special people, who have the talent, the character, the story and the sense of purpose. Leonard Fournette fits that model."

Fournette will join Tom Brady, Cam Newton, Julio Jones, Demaryius Thomas as well others who are a part of the Under Armour team.

Good for Leonard. He deserves it with everything he's been through. Remember, this kid was living under a bridge after Katrina! He persevered and is hopefully headed for stardom! I wish him all the best!

UA doesn't brand their athletes enough. Nobody would know Brady and Jones are UA athletes. Why waste money on signing them if you dont promote them in your product line. Only $cam and SC have apparel lines and even that is sparse. I want some LF gear dammit!

Yeah, seems like they are being true to the model they claim with high caliber athletes. When I first read it I was disappointed for him, but I suppose it is true they are a little more selective than the other big brands.
