Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is leaving adidas apparel company and signs a five-year deal with the Jordan brand, a source close to the situation told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Prescott will be the only Jordan Brand quarterback, the only Cowboys player, and the highest-paid NFL player on the Jordan Brand roster, Schefter reports.
Prescott’s deal was negotiated by his marketing agent Peter Miller of the JABEZ Marketing Group and the Jordan Brand team, according to Schefter.
The Cowboys and Prescott signed a four-year deal for $ 160 million in March, of which $ 126 million was guaranteed.
Prescott has been with Adidas since his Pro Bowl rookie season with the Cowboys in 2016. Mississippi State, where Prescott played in college, was an Adidas school when he was there.
At the beginning of this off-season, Prescott became the spokesman for Anheuser-Busch InBev. He’s had deals with Pepsi, Sleep Number, Dannon Yogurt, Campbell’s Soup, 7-Eleven, AT&T and Beats By Dre, among others, since he started the Cowboys.

Prescott won’t be the first notable Cowboys player to be associated with the Jordan brand. Former Dallas star Dez Bryant was associated with the company when he was with the Cowboys at the end of his career.
The news comes after Prescott reported back on a dislocated and complicated fracture of his right ankle that forced him to miss 11 games in 2020.
“I buried the injury,” said Prescott on Wednesday.
