Nike recently signed Mariota to an endorsement deal, along with other future NFL stars Amari Cooper, Leonard Williams, Melvin Gordon, and some Florida State quarterback — but that’s not important. What is important, though, is the hope that Nike’s newest additions will replace the voids left by Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice, whose contracts were terminated after their recent off-the-field issues this past season. Below are photos of Marcus and the sleek new Nike gear:

This is a huge deal for Nike, as they have landed the projected first and second overall picks in Thursday’s NFL Draft. Nike also released a three-and-a-half minute video of Mariota preparing for the draft with famous Nike trainer Ryan Flaherty and what this opportunity means to him and his family.
Let’s all hope, as Nike and Duck fans, that this will be the first of many ads featuring Marcus with revolutionizing Nike products for years to come.
