Joseph Randle to endorse underwear firm

Joseph Randle, a Dallas Cowboys running back who was arrested last week for stealing a pack of underwear and a bottle of cologne from department store, will now endorse an underwear company.

Randle will endorse MeUndies, which will pay him enough money to help him clear the cost of the $29,500 fine that Dallas Cowboys have reportedly planned to impose on him.

In addition, Randle and the underwear company will donate $15,000 worth of underwear and basic wear to kids in the Dallas area.

The company said in a statement, “He saw this partnership as an opportunity to turn a negative situation into a positive and teamed up with MeUndies to give back to his community and help families in need. Every mistake can be a teaching opportunity if you are willing to take advantage of it."

Randle, who rushed for 113 yards on sixteen carries this season, was glad to be allowed to enter the field against the Giants on Sunday. Last Wednesday, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett announced that Randle would be punished with a significant fine, but he would not be suspended from the team.

Police took Randle into custody on the night of last Monday, after manager of a Frisco Dillard’s department store reported that he attempted to steal a $39.50-pack of two black Polo underwear and a bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne valued at $84.

Randle has a base salary of $495,000 for this season. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys out of Oklahoma State in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
