Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has agreed to an endorsement deal with baseball footwear and apparel company 3n2 LLC, his first since his suspension last year for violating Major League Baseball's anti-drug agreement.
The company based in Orlando, Fla., announced the agreement Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed for the deal first reported by ESPN.com.
Nike Inc., ended its relationship with Braun after the slugger was suspended 65 games last summer for his involvement with Biogenesis, a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
He has apologized and returned to the team in spring training.
Company president Marty Graham said the agreement wasn't about the past, but focused on the future. He said the firm has done its research and strongly believes in Braun as an athlete.
