Toppers Pizza says it has signed Taylor to be its spokesperson. The lifetime partnership includes Taylor owning four Toppers franchises in Madison.MADISON, Wis. — Former Wisconsin Badgers running back Jonathan Taylor will find out where he’s headed to start his pro career later this week at the NFL Draft, but no matter where he ends up, he’ll be keeping his ties to Madison.
For days, Toppers had been teasing a new “recruit” to their team, using the hashtag “#FRANCHISEPLAYER.”
Tuesday morning, ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell was one of the first to tweet about the sponsorship deal.
Taylor also impressed at the NFL Combine earlier this year, running a 4.39 40-yard dash that was the fastest among all running backs in this year’s draft class. He could potentially be a first-round pick once the draft gets underway Thursday night.
