His own Xbox.com Blog. (At least, leading up to last years NFL draft)
Endorsement deal with Energy-Athletics-Strength (EAS)
Subway Commercial (“Wait a second! Sundays I’m kinda busy. Sorry“)
A HUMMER in return for endorsing General Motors Vehicles
And he’s arguably an over-paid millionaire, based on his draft position.
Question: What do you get for the guy who has everything? Answer: A starting QB position in the NFL. With the Cleveland Browns re-signing Superstar (maybe? possibly? wait and see?) QB Derek Anderson to a 3-year $24 million dollar contact, it looks like Brady Quinn is set to become the most endorsed back-up player in the history of all sports. Is Kyle Orton seeing any of that Hummer endorsement money? Does Charlie Batch have any chance of ever being in a Subway commercial with Jared? Does Brodie Croyle even know what EAS stands for? No. No. and No…or, maybe on that last one. The point is that reputable companies are paying Brady Quinn money to endorse their product…and he’s sitting on the bench. I think I’d take that job in a heartbeat. On the other hand, I don’t know the length of the endorsement deals, but I know that if he doesn’t throw more than 8 passes this season? He’ll be endorsing as many products as yours truly. If Quinn does stay with the Browns as a back-up during these next couple of years, I think we’ll all be witnessing the greatest “endorsement bust” in the history of sports (excluding Michael Vick’s endorsement of dog collars, Barry Bonds endorsement of “one-size fits all” fitted hats, Roger Clemens endorsement of Lidocane, and Bush’s endorsement of John McCain (zing!).)
