Even though Under Armour’s official on-field partnership with the NFL ended in 2021, meaning you no longer see their logo on cleats, gloves, or game-day gear, don’t be fooled. A bunch of NFL stars are still rocking UA, albeit a bit more undercover. Curious about which NFL players are still with team UA? Let’s dive into the roster.
A List of NFL Players Signed to Under Armour
Tom Brady – Quarterback
The seven-time Super Bowl champion and arguably the G.O.A.T. of football, Tom Brady has been with Under Armour since 2010.
TB12 and UA have teamed up on everything from high-tech sleepwear to top-notch training gear. It’s like a match made in sports heaven: Brady’s unmatched game and UA’s relentless drive for innovation. This dynamic duo has been setting the bar in the sports gear world, and honestly, we’re all here for it.
Justin Jefferson – Wide receiver
Justin Jefferson, that Vikings sensation, has been rocking Under Armour since his rookie days.
Fresh out of LSU in 2020, UA snagged this wide receiver dynamo for their NFL lineup before the 2021 season kicked off. And sure, we’ve spotted JJ in some Adidas cleats on the field because of UA’s expired NFL licensing agreement, let’s be real: those logo-disguised Under Armour Smoke Blur or Spotlight cleats in slick purple? They’re straight fire and sync up perfectly with his Vikings threads.
DK Metcalf – Wide receiver
DK Metcalf, the Seahawks’ speedster, has been sporting Under Armour since he burst onto the NFL scene. UA, with their keen eye for talent, locked in this wide receiver beast fresh from Ole Miss before the 2019 season got rolling.
While DK might occasionally flex in other brands, like the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3, DK has mainly been seen wearing those slim green Under Armour Spotlight Suede MC cleats with the logo covered up.
Cam Newton – Quarterback
Cam Newton’s deal with Under Armour was reportedly the largest deal ever given to an NFL rookie, even outshining the $1 million a year deal Reggie Bush got from Adidas in 2006.
The former Carolina Panthers MVP is definitely known as a QB with style and has been repping Under Armour since he first stepped onto the NFL scene. From his signature C1N cleat line that screams flair to his off-field fashion collabs, Newton’s partnership with UA is a blend of athletic prowess and trendsetting vibes.
Tony Romo – Quarterback
Before trading his cleats for the commentator’s booth, Tony Romo, the Cowboys’ former QB ace, was all about that Under Armour life. UA, recognizing the star power of this gridiron maestro, teamed up with Romo during his prime playing days in Dallas. These days, Romo’s swapped his UA gear for Skechers as he is now an ambassador for the apparel brand.
