A Raiders star's name helping him haul in an endorsement deal.
FOX's Matt Napolitano reports:
Raiders defensive lineman Khalil Mack is known for barreling through offensive lines like a truck, so it's fitting enough that he is the new face of truck manufacturer: Mack.
The all-pro defensive end describing what led him to pursue a deal with Mack:
(Mack) "Got a text from Draymond Green out of the blue one day. And he was like little bro, you've got to partnering with Mack."
Now this isn't the first NFL player to earn an endorsement deal based on their name.
Cowboys rookie Taco Charlton signed a deal with Mexican fast food chain Taco Bueno. Chargers draft pick Forrest Lamp signed on with retailer Lamps Plus and Broncos tight end Jake Butt, well, he has an endorsement contract with Charmin.
