Eric LeGrand Is Getting Paid

Endorsement deals - another hallmark of a quality player.
Did you know Eric LeGrand got a Subway endorsement? I was reading PFT this morning because I hate myself and love segues that take several paragraphs to develop and I came across the ad in the banner pic. There’s LeGrand with Robert Griffin III and Justin Tuck. And that’s just plain awesome.

When Greg Schiano made LeGrand a full member of the roster, we knew it was ceremonial and that he wasn’t really going to play for the team. But his endorsement deal is as real as it gets. He’s in the ad right next to the Heisman Trophy winner and second pick of the draft and he’s getting paid just like Griffin and Tuck. It’s great to see him not only getting to say he was on an NFL roster, but also get some of the benefits that go along with being an NFL player. And because of the exposure he’s getting and the money he’s generating, his cause is getting more attention as well. There may come a time within our lifetimes where people will no longer have to be paralyzed, and LeGrand will have contributed to that. And that will far overshadow his roster experience. Very cool, Eric.

Always refreshing to see somebody make something positive out of a bad situation. The world needs more people like Eric LeGrand.

I came here during my break to make an Eric LeGrand pun, but now I forget what it was. Oh well, back to the LeGrind.
