SKINS Compression, the world’s leading gradient compression sportswear brand -- with products engineered to improve performance and accelerate muscle recovery both during and after physical activity -- is proud to announce a partnership with four of the NFL’s most respected athletes, competitors, and individuals.

SKINS NFL brand ambassadors will be featured in advertising, PR, social media, point-of-sale merchandising, and promotional materials in the new 100 Series product line, specifically created with the team sport athlete in mind. Representing SKINS team initiatives will be:

  • Chase Blackburn (linebacker, New York Giants) – Super Bowl champion, Chase was key in the Giants’ run to victory in last year’s championship run. Blackburn made one of the biggest plays of the 2011 season, recording a late fourth quarter interception against Patriot quarterback Tom Brady in Super Bowl XLVI - the lone turnover for either team.
  • Peyton Hillis (running back, Kansas City Chiefs) – a fan favorite in 2010, with 1,177 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns, Hillis was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week in week 9 of the 2010 season - the first Browns running back to achieve that honor since 1992. After his breakout season, Hillis won a nationwide vote in 2011 that put him on the cover of EA Sports' Madden NFL 12.
  • Brian Rolle (linebacker, Philadelphia Eagles) – selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Rolle became the Eagles starting weak-side linebacker in week 4 and started the remaining 13 games, finishing fourth on the team in tackles and scoring his first career touchdown in week 9.
  • Bryan Scott (linebacker, Buffalo Bills) – drafted in 2003 out of Penn State as a second round pick of the Atlanta Falcons, Scott may be the first NFL player in the modern era to start at cornerback, safety and linebacker. In 2011, Scott recorded 66 tackles, two interceptions, one sack and a touchdown for an improving Buffalo Bills franchise.

“We could not be happier to welcome Chase, Bryan, Peyton, and Brian to the SKINS family. These elite calibre athletes and individuals embody the spirit of the SKINS brand, and are true role models on and off the field,” said Steve Ozmai, Director of Marketing for SKINS North America.

“The 100 Series product line provides us with an opportunity to bring the medically and scientifically proven benefits of SKINS gradient compression to a much broader audience of team sport athletes. Following the examples set by each of these athletes, our mission is to help those with a passion for athletics prepare, perform, and recover at their best to achieve their goals.”

SKINS, a well-known advocate of ethics in sport and competition, selected these four NFL players not only because of their accomplishments and character on the field, but also how they achieved their goals and realized their dreams through determination, hard work, and perseverance.
