Trevor Lawrence, the Pacific Pro Football League wants you.
Yee added that there could be endorsements for the young quarterback as part of the deal.
“Adidas is one of our founding sponsors, and I think they might want to make him an endorsement proposal. He would be professional and he would learn an NFL-style game with us before he declares for the (NFL) draft.”
Current NFL rules dictate that a player must be at least three years removed from high school to enter the draft, which wouldn’t make Lawrence eligible until the 2021 NFL draft.
In addition to potential endorsements, Lawrence would be eligible for the rest of the Pacific Pro Football League’s benefits.
“Players will receive a salary, benefits, and even paid tuition and books for one year at community college,” the League website says. “Players also will be able to market themselves for compensation, and begin creating a financial retirement plan if they so choose. Pacific Pro’s top priority will be the proper development of the player, on and off the field, using professional protocols.
Does Lawrence feel like pioneering? Would Clemson allow itself to be outbid for his services? (I keed, I keed… I think.) Doubtful.
