Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews got his wish: He’s signed a one-year endorsement deal with Suave hair products.
After half-jokingly lobbying for a deal like the one Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers — the team Green Bay will face in next Sunday’s Super Bowl in Dallas — has with Head and Shoulders, Matthews now becomes the second player in the game to add to his legacy because of his ‘do.
“I’ve been throwing it out there and just getting shunned,” Matthews told the media on Monday. “I don’t know what it is … America, I’m looking for a hair deal.”
Of course, he was joking. Right?
Regardless, the NFL Defensive MVP candidate will soon be hawking Suave Men products. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but one would guess Matthews won’t be paying for his own shampoo or gel for a while.
