Chase Claypool has secured a brand new endorsement deal.

“There’s a select few representing Jordan Brand in the league,” Claypool said. “When you look at the roster, those are the people killing it right now. So when you lace up those Jordans, you want to be at the same level as the other guys. It’s a family environment, but you’re also competing and trying to make each other better.”
Claypool’s apparel deal with Jordan adds to his impressive resume for the former Notre Dame product. The 22-year-old had a sensational rookie season with the Steelers, with 62 receptions for 873 yards and nine touchdowns, setting some records along the way.
“Joe told me that they really take care of you at Jordan Brand,” Claypool said when asked how much Haden played a part in signing with Jordan. “The more I talked to Joe, the easier it was to make the decision.”
"I always want to be different in a good way. I wanted to be someone people could look up to."
