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.

This is a shrewd move by under armour. They are definitely speculating, but if this guy fulfills his potential he could be the type of guy that turns UA into Nike the way Jordan did.

Of course he is so polarizing I doubt he would be able to do that the way Jordan did. Jordan at one time was liked by almost everybody besides Cleveland fans. I remember his last game (in Washington) getting chants and standing ovation from the entire stadium in Philadelphia. I mean Philly fans booed Santa Claus for crying out loud.

What is the deal? Is it based on him going in the first round, being able to play and make a difference in the rookie year, etc.? Could be a lot of ifs and and buts in the deal.
