Matthew Stafford Embracing New Endorsement Opportunities

Early on in Matthew Stafford's career, he had a couple of endorsements here or there, but he was not all over your TV by any means. In fact, Ndamukong Suh, the Detroit Lions' top pick a year after Stafford, seemed to have more endorsements.

With Stafford fresh off of his best season in the NFL, it seems he is either receiving more endorsement opportunities or is now beginning to capitalize on them. During Super Bowl week, for example, he was all over the place making promotional stops for companies like DIRECTV and Van Heusen. For Stafford, this was something he wasn't necessarily used to, but he is getting more comfortable with it.

"It's different as far as things like this, going to the Super Bowl, getting chances to work with companies, do opportunities with them," Stafford said before last week's NFL honors show, when he was named the NFL's comeback player of the year. "There's more of them now than there was 12 months ago. That stuff's not that big of a deal to me. The biggest thing for me is being able to be out there, be successful for the team."

Stafford went on to say that this type of thing isn't his cup of tea and football is more important to him than endorsements.
