Default UA Cleats and a Nike Uniform

[IMG]https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/q71/s720x720/942730_10151682265546913_1145124967_n.jpg/[IMG]

I know there is a big rift in the Gamecock Community about the UA cleats. Connor Shaw has mentioned his disdain for them on several occasions. However, I find it interesting Marcus is wearing UA cleats despite the Nike uniform. Any thoughts?

When an athlete signs a deal with a company, they endorse, or in this case wear, their products. Pretty easy to comprehend...

well Marcus (along with many other NFL players) has an endorsement deal with UA...Nike has the jersey contract with the NFL, not really all that complicated. not really sure what you are looking for

I forgot they Nike got the jersey rights after the reebok contract was up. Anyway, Marcus must not think the cleats are that bad though if he signed a deal with them. IDK it's the offseason.

Default Re: UA Cleats and a Nike Uniform

He's wearing UA cleats for one of the following 2 reasons:

1. UA paid him more than Nike or Adidas.

2. Over the past 3 years he became comfortable with UA gear and they offered him some money to keep wearing their stuff.

Default Re: UA Cleats and a Nike Uniform

Uhm, yeah, the brand of the uniform has nothing to do with the brand of cleats a player wears. Every NFL team has Nike uniforms. Under Armour has Marcus Lattimore under contract (like many other NFL players ie: Cam Newton, Tom Brady, etc.).

Exactly...it's about money.

Exactly. All NFL Uniforms are Nike, but players are allowed to have Cleats from different companies if they would like.
