Prescott had been with Adidas going back to his rookie year in 2016. In the five years since, Prescott has evolved from a promising fourth-round rookie into one of the NFL's most recognizable stars, as well as the face of the league's biggest team.
In addition to Jordan Brand and Adidas, Prescott has had deals with Anheuser-Busch InBev, Pepsi, Sleep Number, Dannon Yogurt, Campbell's Soup, 7-Eleven, AT&T and Beats By Dre since becoming the starting quarterback in Dallas, per Schefter.
This is the second big-money deal Prescott has landed this year, having signed a four-year, $160 million deal in March to stay with the Cowboys long-term.
Prescott now joins a group of athletes at Jordan Brand, including Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, Devin White, Michael Thomas and Jamal Adams. Despite a devastating ankle injury last season, he stands to be the biggest name of the group as he returns to the Cowboys' explosive offense for 2021.
