Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes was forced yesterday to pay -- from a public-relations standpoint -- for the distribution of a sex tape he appeared in.
Today, the cost became monetary.
Agent Terry Watson confirmed that Reebok has pulled an offer of a marketing deal previously extended to Spikes. Watson was informed by a former marketing agent of Spikes, and has put in a call to an executive from the Massachusetts-based company to discuss the matter.
The revelation of the pulled offer first appeared on a blog called "What Would Joe Namath Do?
", and that report indicated that the deal was worth $60,000 with on-field achievement incentives that could increase its value. Watson couldn't confirm the financial terms, but did say that Spikes sees the error of his ways on this one.
