|Executives at SportsInteraction.com have announced that they have offered endorsement to Jason Giambi, the embattled Yankee star.|
The endorsement offer from gaming site, SportsInterAction.com (SIA), is worth up to $3 million per year to Giambi, who recently saw Nike, Pepsi and Arm & Hammer depart from his endorsement camp in light of reports that Giambi has used performance enhancing drugs. SIA believes the superstar still has huge market value in the sports world.
A formal offer letter was submitted and phone call was placed to Giambi's agent, Arn Tellem late on Monday afternoon following news of Nike's withdrawal.
With the obvious controversy of having a sports figure signing an endorsement deal with an online gaming site, language in the contract would forbid Jason Giambi from making any kind of bets on baseball, at any level.
