Georgia QB JT Daniels signs monster NIL deal, plans to share with teammates

·1 min read

Georgia quarterback J.T. Daniels has signed a trading card deal that could net him upwards of seven figures.

Everett Sports Management, who is representing Daniels along with other former UGA stars like Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and D’Andre Swift, says the six-month deal rewards Daniels $100 per signature with 50% in royalties from both signed and unsigned cards.

That’s great for Daniels, but here is the kicker…

Daniels plans to share half of the money with his Georgia teammates.

When Georgia joined 27 other states in signing a name, image and likeness bill this summer, we knew Bulldogs would benefit given the reach of the UGA football program but we weren’t sure how things would progress.

We knew that high-profile players like Daniels would be able to cash in easily but what about the other 100 or so Bulldogs who will never have such an opportunity?

It sounds like Daniels was thinking the same thing. This move not only shows the type of leader Daniels is but also signals a special relationship amongst his teammates.

Daniels and the Dawgs have just 18 more days to prepare for Clemson in Charlotte on Sept. 4.
