Gardner Minshew’s newfound fame has brought him an unlikely endorsement offer: porn.

Popular adult webcam site CamSoda has offered the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback $1 million to teach a weekly fitness class and be a brand ambassador. In a letter posted on the company’s Twitter account Wednesday, Vice President Daryn Parker wrote that Minshew’s affinity for doing band exercises half-naked sparked the idea to offer him a contract:

“We’d like for you to lead a weekly exercise class for CamSoda Fit that you can livestream from the comfort of home — or the locker room,” Parker wrote. “Our only requirement is that you incorporate band workouts into your class and do them in a jockstrap and/or naked.”

CamSoda also wants Minshew to be the face of its puppet line, which it describes as a knit costume for your genitals. The company plans to unveil a jaguar puppet to accompany its existing styles of an elephant and vampire.

The offer comes less than a week after another porn company, BangBros, said it would bid $10 million for the naming rights to the Miami Heat arena.

Minshew, best known for his mustache and peculiar name origin, was given the reins to the franchise after Nick Foles broke his collarbone in week one. He performed admirably, completing nearly 90 percent of his passes and throwing for two touchdowns.

The Washington State product made headlines again when a photo of him looking like he just stepped out of “Saturday Night Fever” surfaced ahead of his week two match up against the Houston Texans.

Minshew has yet to respond to the offer, but $1 million is $1 million.

That’s a lot of money to turn down just because it doesn’t “fit your brand.”
