Yoga and athletic wear company Lululemon is getting into the football business.

Lululemon on Tuesday announced that Nick Foles, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, currently testing the free market, is the company’s ambassador for its menswear line. It’s the company’s first relationship with a NFL player.

Foles tweeted the news, “I’m @lululemonmen’s new elite ambassador. Like me, they’re all about community, mindfulness and #thesweatlife.”

Lululemon men retweeted the quarterback saying they landed “the most sought-after free agent in football.”

During the 2017 season Foles guided the Eagles after starting quarterback Carson Wentz was injured, leading them all the way to Super Bowl LII and beat the New England Patriots, earning the MVP.

Foles assumed the backup role again last season and again stepped in when Wentz was injured and lead the Eagles into the playoffs.

Last month the Eagles offered to pick up the $20 million option on Foles’ contract, but he declined and bought out his contract to enter into free agency.

Several reports say he will likely land with the Jacksonville Jaguars. NFL free agency begins on Wednesday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
