Clinch Gear signs NFL player Hawk

June 28, 2011

Green Bay Packer linebacker AJ Hawk has signed a deal with MMA brand Clinch Gear. Hawk multiyear deal will have the former Buckeye endorse Clinchgear’s training gear.

Via Clinchgear’s┬ápress release:

Hawk will represent Clinch Gear’s growing line of performance training apparel, which includes the world’s leading Performance Training Shorts as well as technical compression and loose-fit Performance Shirts, compression shorts and compression briefs. Clinch Gear will also introduce A.J. Hawk signature products in 2012. The match was made by Conor Sammartin of Priority Sports & Entertainment.

Payout Perspective:

First Chad Ochocinco signed with Tapout and now A.J. Hawk signs with Clinch Gear. Ironically. as I wrote this ESPN was interviewing Clay Mathews about his offseason MMA training. Its interesting to see how much football players enjoy MMA. And as a result, MMA brands are taking advantage of the opportunity to expand its audience through these endorsements.

Got something to say?
