#8You Get Endorsements
Once you’ve become one of the top players in your respective sport then endorsement contracts start flying at you from everywhere. Lebron James got paid $39 million last year for representing companies like Nike, Beats, and Samsung. Despite his image woes Tiger Woods STILL pulled in $33 million in endorsements, while rival Phil Mickelson edged him with $36 million. Last year Derrick Rose didn’t play a single minute and still made $17 million in endorsements. A-Rod used to have a deal with Armani that allowed him to walk into a store and take anything he wanted for free.
JETS TE KELLEN WINSLOW SUSPENDED FOUR GAMES FOR VIOLATING PED POLICY - The NFL announced on Friday that New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended four games for violating the league’s performance enhancing substances policy.
Winslow was already listed as doubtful for this week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He leads the Jets with 17 catches and is tied for the team lead with two touchdowns this season.
Winslow has been missing from practice over the last couple of days. So there was speculation that he was upset about his role in the offense. Also there was speculation about how his knee is holding up. But Friday’s announcement answers all those questions.
The Jets will be without Winslow until he’s eligible to return on Monday, Nov. 4.
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was asked at a recent presser what he thought about the 28-point spread favoring the 5-0 Broncos over the 0-5 Jacksonville Jaguars who they will play Sunday, October 13.
What Peyton said:
We’re playing a good NFL football team. I don’t look at anything besides what I see on the tape. On defense I see a team that’s stingy in the red zone. I’ve seen some offenses that have made some really good plays against them, that have been hard to defend, and certainly it’s a team with a lot of pride. It’s about what are you doing each week. What you did last week, the week before, it really is irrelevant. It’s about this week.”
What Peyton meant:
I vill crush you!
