The National Football League is looking to cash in on the “Pussycat Doll” phenomenon.
The New York Giants and New York Jets have signed former NFL running back LaDarius Gunter as their first-round pick, the league announced Tuesday.
The announcement comes after the NFLPA made an offer to Gunter’s representatives last month.NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will look at the offer and “make an offer we think is a fair deal for our players.”
“If it’s something we feel is fair for our player and our league, then we’ll certainly consider it,” Goodell said.
The Giants and Jets are expected to announce their picks in the next few days.
The Giants are expected on Monday, the Jets on Wednesday and the Eagles on Thursday.
The “Pittycat Dolls” have become popular as a way to boost revenue for the NFL.
The dolls resemble female football players, often with a face and an outfit that makes them look more feminine.
The idea is that the dolls help fans identify with a player by mimicking their personality.
The dolls have gained popularity after they were created by American Girl dolls.
They sell for as little as $14.99, and fans can purchase as many as six dolls in a single transaction.
