It hasn't taken Michael Thomas very long to become one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. The former Ohio State star had a tremendous rookie season and he followed that up with a great Year 2.

Thomas is clearly respected on the field and valued as one of the league's top wideouts.

The off-the-field love is starting to roll in now, too.

Thomas has landed an endorsement deal with Jordan Brand.

From Jordan:

“Blessed, honored and privileged were just a few of the emotions that came over me when I received that call from the Jordan Brand inviting me to join their elite family,” says Thomas.

The fact that he shares the same first name as the brand’s icon isn’t lost on him. “I always felt like I had a special connection to MJ. Yes, I too wanted to be like Mike. Whether it’s the weight room, film study or on the football field, I refuse to settle for second. This mentality has driven me to where I am today, and I hope that I can continue the brand’s legacy by inspiring the next generation to be like Mike.”

Thomas joins a family of 50-plus members across all sports who represent the brand’s dedication to achieving greatness.

Congrats, Mike!
