Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Gets Endorsement With MeUndies
A week after getting busted for stealing underwear in Texas, Dallas Cowboys running back, Joseph Randle, is now getting an an endorsement deal with an underwear company.
Randle, who was arrested and charged with a Class B misdemeanor for allegedly stealing underwear and cologne at a Dillard’s in Frisco, Texas, has signed on to endorse the underwear company MeUndies.
The company will reportedly pay Randle enough to help offset the cost of the $29,000 fine the Cowboys gave him. In addition, MeUndies and Randle will donate $15,000 worth of underwear and other clothing to children in need. Plus, the running back will be making multiple appearances at Dallas-area schools and charities to speak to students about learning from their mistakes.
“There is no excuse for my mistake last week, and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Randle said. “I let down my coaches, teammates, and family. My agent and I have spent a lot of time looking for ways I can turn my situation into a learning experience for young people.
“Partnering with MeUndies allows me the opportunity to give back to others less fortunate than myself, and spread a positive message of not making the same mistake twice.”
Randle, who was drafted in 2013 by the Cowboys, has rushed for 120 yards on 18 carries this season. He doesn’t have a touchdown, but he does have some of the “world’s most comfortable underwear” with MeUndies.
What are your thoughts on this? Should Randle be getting an endorsement deal after committing a crime?
