Report: Fanatics sues No. 4 overall NFL draft pick

A lawsuit has been filed in New York Supreme Court against Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. by an apparel manufacturer, according to reports.

The suit, filed by Fanatics, an American manufacturer and online retailer of licensed sportswear, alleges that Harrison is in breach of a contract which was signed in May 2023. Details of the contract were redacted in the court filing. Harrison’s side has denied there is a contract.

ESPN first reported the lawsuit, which sites ‘The Official Harrison Collection LLC’ as a defendant. The contract is said to be worth more than $1 million for autographs and game-worn apparel.

The suit claims that Harrison received a significant payment, but didn’t fulfill his portion of the agreement. The NFLPA’s group licensing agreement allows players’ name, image and likeness to be marketed.

Harrison was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. He has not hired an agent.
