Default Re: Clowney is 190 million dollars richer

Puma's current biggest NFL athlete is Jamaal Charles. Usain Bolt is probably their top athlete overall, and his popularity primarily spikes every 4 years.

If you were trying to make a splash with the former #1 overall recruit and current #1 draft pick and sign him before the other usual suspects (Nike signed all the top QBs this year), how much money would you offer Clowney over 10 years (I'm guessing the length of his deal is around that)? I could def see $190 mil, just with how much money gets thrown around now.

At the very least, any amount of money he gets will be over a period of time. Nobody gets signed to a 1-year endorsement deal.

I dont care, I think he made a mistake leaving early for the draft. He could have stayed and improved his stock. He could have had better endorsements like British Knights shoes. Hell always be a Gamecock but I think he had some bad people in his ears before he declared.

Just heard it is a 10 year deal. FWIW.

JD Clowney should be renamed to Saint Clowney in South Carolina. I am so glad that he came to play for us and am very proud of him.

He was drafted #1..... how exactly was he going to do better than that.

Who the hell in the US knows anything about British Knights shoes.....how many Super Bowls have they won.

Default Re: Clowney is 190 million dollars richer

A little birdie from IMG told me that the amount is the top amount he can earn, it's a sliding scale. Tiger's first signing with Nike was structured the same way, he won the Master's and got the entire amount.

So he basically has to win the superbowl every year for the next seven years to get that total amount of money. He'll still make a bundle.

Bks. Awesome. Maybe Kswiss or Brooks would have out bid them too. I agree, leaving early to be drafted #1 is a bad move. Good one, I laughed out loud.

Rumor has it K-Swiss was going to give him a bigger deal if he came out in 2015.

A lot better than the deal FILA gave me, $1 a year for 190 million years.
