Dallas Cowboys receiver has signed a three-year endorsement deal with Jordan, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas.
Bryant himself announced the new partnership via Twitter on Thursday, writing, “I didn't want to break the ice now, but I'm going to go ahead and put it out there I'm officially with the Jordan brand.”
The Cowboys receiver, who is coming off of a career-year with Dallas, was reportedly in Las Vegas at the time for an event for the Jordan Brand, which of course is the namesake of NBA Legend Michael Jordan.
As Watkins points out, this isn’t Bryant’s first major endorsement deal. He signed with Under Armour after being drafted but was released from the deal less than a year later.
Entering his fourth year in the league, Bryant’s stock seems to be on the rise. In 2012, he caught 92 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns--all career-highs--and showed a level of maturity not seen a whole lot in his first two seasons.
