Crabtree Will Get His Subway On

Though it remains to be seen whether and to what extent foot surgery that wiped out his ability to run for scouts will hurt his draft status come late April, Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree already is cashing in via an endorsement deal. According to SportsBusiness Journal, Crabtree will be the latest NFL prospect to pimp Subway sandwiches. Crabtree will make personal appearances and participate in behind-the-scenes Webisodes that will be posted at during the week of the 2009 draft. As Terry Lefton of SBJ explains, it’s the fourth straight year that Subway has hired a big-name draft prospect. It started in 2006 with Reggie Bush, and continued with Brady Quinn and Chris Long. Crabtree is represented in his endorsement activities by Mike Ornstein, who brokered Bush’s deal with Subway three years ago. Though we have no real reason to participate in the pimping of Subway, I’ve eaten lunch there like every day for the past eight years. And now I’ve made myself hungry. So now I’ve got to go to freaking Subway. Despite the presence of a full box of Lucky Charms within arm’s reach. Aaron Wilson, you’re up.
