There’s a raging debate about whether Heisman Trophy-winning Auburn quarterback Cam Newton has what it takes to make it as a quarterback in the NFL. But Under Armour has no doubt that Newton is going to be a star.

Darren Rovell of CNBC reports that Newton has signed a shoe and apparel deal with Under Armour that will be the largest deal ever given to an incoming NFL rookie, topping the $1 million a year deal Reggie Bush got from Adidas in 2006.

There is strong market support historically for making this kind of decision if you are UA. Basically there is an absolutely ridiculous amount of morons in these United States that would buy all the Sir Cameron Newton: Leader of Men, Lover of Puppies...Esquire garbage prior to draft day.

Quite fitting that Reggie Bu$h was mentioned as well.

Not the smartest move by Under Armour, not because he may bust but because he may not play a down of football until 2012, after a lockout.

I think a lockout helps their cause. They can keep the hype train rolling for an entire year for free. He won't be great his first season no matter what, so they would get a free year before he has to start improving.
