Weight-loss program Nutrisystem has ended its endorsement deal with Lawrence Taylor following the Pro Football Hall of Famer’s arrest on rape charges, SportsBusiness Daily reports citing multiple sources.
Taylor has appeared in Nutrisystem TV commercials after becoming an endorser in March 2009. The brand uses several sports figures as endorsers, including Dan Marino, Don Shula and John Kruk.
Nutrisystem has replaced Taylor’s image on their website with Padres right fielder Matt Stairs, TMZ.com reports.
