Braun Loses More Endorsements

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun has joined the list of athletes who have

had contracts with Nike terminated. The company no longer has a relationship with Braun. The outfielder accepted a season ending 65-game suspension imposed last week by Major League Baseball for his connection to the Biogenesis drug scandal.

Braun had been wearing Nike shoes and batting gloves for his entire seven-year major league career, and the company recently began selling Big Bat Like Braun and Braun Owns Milwaukee T-shirts in stores.

Braun has lost nearly all of his endorsement deals in the two years since he became connected to performance-enhancing drugs: Kwik Trip canceled its Lunch With Ryan Braun promotion, although Wilson sold a Braun game model glove this year, his name is no longer listed on the company's website and Braun's deal with Muscle Milk was not renewed last year.
