Michael Sam has signed his first endorsement deal.
Visa has partnered with Sam, who could become the first active openly gay NFL player.
"We wish Michael the best on and off the field as he embarks on the next chapter of his life."
Sam has 95,000-plus Twitter followers, more than any other potential 2014 NFL draftee except for quarterbacks Johnny Manziel, AJ McCarron and Aaron Murray.
Visa has been the exclusive payment services sponsor of the NFL since 1995.
