The NIL deals for Jalen Milroe are expected to flood in. Boardroom breaks down the current portfolio for the Alabama QB1.
It pays to be QB1 for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Literally.
It wasn’t a foregone conclusion that Jalen Milroe was going to start for Bama in 2023. Even so, a couple of companies viewed Milroe through a long-term lens, not waiting for the official word from Nick Saban before signing the QB to name, image, & likeness (NIL) deals.
That confirmation would eventually come when Milroe trotted out under center in the Crimson Tide’s first game of the season, and in turn, his annual NIL valuation immediately doubled. Should he hold onto the starting job throughout the season, more partnerships are sure to follow.
With his portfolio far from complete, let’s break down where Jalen Milroe currently stands in the NIL world.

Speaking of a gamble, Rhoback took an even bigger swing on Milroe a year ago.
The company signed Milroe to an NIL deal in 2022 when he was still backing up Panthers QB Bryce Young. It wasn’t even a guarantee that Milroe would earn the backup spot, let alone eventually become the starter for 2023, so credit Rhoback for its foresight.
