This will set his draft stock back some, courtesy of GBN: Notre Dame WR Jeff Samardzija, a potential early pick at the 2007 NFL draft, has agreed to a 5-year deal with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs had selected Samardzija with a fifth-round draft pick at the major league draft earlier this month. Once the deal is approved by the commissioner's office, Samardzija will join the Boise Hawks, an advanced rookie club of the Northwest League. Samardzija will be able to play at Notre Dame this fall. His plan is to play professional baseball and football after graduating Notre Dame. Here's a question: Jeremy Bloom wasn't allowed to play football at CU because he took endorsement money for skiing. Now we have Samardzija who is playing professional baseball yet maintains NCAA football eligibility, and Zbikowski boxing professionally yet maintaining eligibility. Can anyone explain that to me? Is salary/purse good, endorsement bad?
