Dallas Cowboys quarterback Duck Prescott is leaving clothing company Adidas and signing a five-year deal with Jordan Brand, a source close to the situation told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Prescott will be Jordan Brand’s only quarterback, the Cowboys’ only player and the highest-paid NFL player on the roster’s list, Schefter reported.
Prescott’s deal was negotiated by his marketing agent Peter Miller of JABEZ Marketing Group and the Jordan Brand team.
Cowboys and Prescott agreed on a four-year, $ 160 million contract, including $ 126 million guaranteed in March.
Prescott has been at Adidas since his Pro Bowl rookie season with the Cowboys in 2016. Mississippi, where Prescott played in college, was an Adidas school when he was there.
Earlier in the season, Prescott became a spokesman for Anheuser-Busch InBev. He has also had deals with Pepsi, Sleep Number, Dannon Yogurt, Campbell’s Soup, 7-Eleven, AT&T and Beats By Dre, among others, since launching on Cowboys.

Prescott will not be the first notable cowboy player associated with the Jordan brand. The former Dallas star Des Bryant was associated with the company when he was with the cowboys at the end of his career.
The news comes after Prescott gave up a sprained and complicated fracture of his right ankle, which forced him to miss 11 games in 2020.
“I buried the injury,” Prescott said Wednesday.
