Though his football income in 2011 will depend on where he’s drafted and whether, you know, there’s football, former Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley has signed an endorsement deal with Nike, according to SportsBusiness Daily.

Fairley, regarded as one of the top defensive tackles in the draft, also has an autograph deal, and he’s in the running to be the cover athlete of EA’s new college football video game.

The dollar value isn’t known. Former Tiger teammate Cam Newton reportedly has signed a seven-figure deal with Under Armour.
