We told you earlier Wednesday that the NFL was investigating the use of NFL players in uniform being used in an advertisement for a party to launch the “Exxxotica Expo” 2011.
In the piece, we mentioned that the only problem here was that the players were in uniform. We also noted sometimes parties like this use a player’s’ likenesses for these parties without them even showing up.
That was the case with Chiefs safety Eric Berry, who was one of the five players featured on the ad for the porn industry shindig.
“Eric did not attend and had no knowledge of this event, and he certainly did not approve the use of his name and image in connection with the party,” Berry’s agent Chad Speck told PFT.
Instead, Berry was in Kansas City on the day of the party to help promote the book of his friend Inky Johnson.
