Report: Woodhead signs on with Skechers

Patriots running back Danny Woodhead has reportedly translated his status as a hardworking, diminutive fan favorite into an endorsement deal with Skechers fitness footwear.

CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted a picture of Woodhead holding a Skechers brand sneaker. Rovell reported the endorsement to be a two-year deal, but did not immediately include compensation figures.

Skechers "markets itself to trend-savvy men, women and children," according to AthletePromotions.com. Woodhead joins the ranks of Skechers endorsers, including Joe Montana, Wayne Gretzky and reality TV star Kim Kardashian. Chief among Skechers Fitness Groups' line are the Shape-ups and Tone-ups branded shoe style.

Woodhead joined the Patriots at the start of the 2010 season after being cut by the New York Jets. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Chadron State.

Rob Gronkowski appears to thoroughly enjoy himself at Daytona 500

Rob Gronkowski appears to thoroughly enjoy himself at Daytona 500

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski attended the Dayton 500 in true Gronkowski form.

He appeared to be there promoting Monster Energy drink, and was therefore hanging with the Monster Girls, who were also promoting the drink. Gronkowski's herniated disc injury, which required surgery in December 2016, does not seem to be slowing him down as he gets warmed up for the Summer of Gronk.

During the race coverage on FOX Sports, Gronk delivered a speed limit joke, which is sure to make the 13-year-old in you chuckle. (You can watch it here.)
