Brian Orakpo Signs National Endorsement Deal With Geico, Will Appear With Caveman

The commercials for Geico, featuring the Geico caveman doing various things with different local athletes, have been a hit around Washington D.C. Now, there will be a new local athlete taking part in them: Brian Orakpo. The Washington Redskins' linebacker has inked a two-year sponsorship deal with Geico, according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal:

There's a difference, though. Whereas all those other commercials were local, Orakpo's deal is for a national audience.

Via the SBJ story:

Redskins LB Brian Orakpo has signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Geico in which he will be featured in three national television spots this NFL season, the first one set to air tomorrow night on ESPN during the Redskins-Ravens game.

It is the first time that Geico, which is based in Chevy Chase, will use a football player for their national advertising spots. Details aren't fully known on the commercials themselves, but we know they will tell a cohesive story and that two of them will play off Orakpo's last name. Seeing as how Orakpo's last name is pretty unique, that should be interesting.
