Jadeveon Clowney close to picking Puma endorsement

Published Add your comment

Jadeveon Clowney is fast becoming a big name in the world of football after an impressive Combine performance, and come May he could be the first name read out at the NFL Draft. 

And whenever a player emerges as a potential star you can be sure the major sporting brands will be sniffing around looking to snap them up on a major endorsement deal.

Johnny Manziel for instance is rumored to be mulling over major offers from both Nike and Under Armour.

But it seems like Clowney, the former South Carolina defensive end, could well shun any potential deals with the likes of Nike and Adidas, in favor of Puma.

ESPN's sports business reporter Darren Rovell took to Twitter to reveal the potential move:

"Looking like Jadeveon Clowney is going to sign with Puma. Won't be able to wear their logo on NFL field," he told followers

The move would be a major signal of intent from Puma who are looking to increase their presence in the U.S. sports market after already being able to list a number of soccer stars as clients.

But Rovell made the valid point that should Clowney pick Puma over Nike he will have to restrict wearing the brand to off the field activity. Nike currently hold exclusive rights over gear worn by players on the gridiron.
