Alabama promotes players’ NFL contracts on Twitter

Marlon Humphrey Jonathan Allen O.J. Howard

Alabama football stars go to the NFL and earn big money. Not really news. But promoting those contracts on Twitter? That’s something a little different.

Alabama’s official football Twitter account (@AlabamaFTBL) has been busy compiling the contract information for former Crimson Tide players who were drafted in the early rounds of last month’s NFL Draft.

Under the heading “The Process Pays Off,” they’ve been calculating the exact dollar figures for the school’s top draftees. And the numbers are big.

The meaning, implied but not spoken: Come to Alabama and you could be next to make big bucks.

They’ve posted the numbers for defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, cornerback Marlon Humphrey and tight end O.J. Howard on Twitter already.

Other early picks for the Tide included linebacker Reuben Foster, offensive tackle Cam Robinson, linebacker Ryan Anderson and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson.
