The quarterback announced on Twitter that he now has a deal with the Oaklander Hotel and their restaurant, Spirits & Tales.
"For my first NIL deal, I want to make sure I can take care of the big guys who take care of me," he said on Twitter. "I'm excited to announce my association with the Oaklander Hotel & their restaurant, Spirits & Tales, where I will be treating my linemen to our weekly Hog Dinners!"
