When Eric Berry was drafted fifth overall by the Chiefs, he knew he would soon sign a contract worth over $25 million in guaranteed money.
Now, he's about to get paid once again. According to an adidas press release, Berry signed a "multi-year partnership" with the shoe and apparel company.
"I'm very excited to continue my relationship with adidas," said Berry. "I wore the three stripes at Tennessee and feel very comfortable in the gear. I am confident adidas products will help me take my game to an even higher level in the NFL."
Berry joins fellow 2010 draftee C.J. Spiller as well as Reggie Bush, Mario Williams and Lawrence Timmons as adidas clients.
Terms of the contract weren't announced but for a reference, Tim Tebow will earn a minimum of $300,000 from Nike as well as other incentives.
Interesting choice for Mr. Berry. adidas only has a handful of NFL folks signed on.
