The pre-NFL sex tape featuring Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes may not affect his on-field earnings, but it already has cost him off the field.
According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, Reebok has opted not to finalize a marketing deal with Spikes.
Agent Terry Watson confirmed to Rapoport that Reebok has opted to yank the deal off the table.
Meanwhile, several of you have raised an intriguing question regarding the league’s decision to investigate the situation. If Spikes faces scrutiny for making a sex tape (presumably with a consenting adult) before joining the NFL, what if anything has the league done to explore whether an employee of a club was or wasn’t sending unwelcome photos via text message to a non-player employee of the club?
By all appearance, that story died faster than a mayfly with a malignancy. If Spikes’ situation could get him in trouble, how can it be that the other situation went nowhere?
