On Thursday, April 26, the Arizona Cardinals made Marvin Harrison Jr. the fourth pick of the 2024 NFL Draft. Typically, when a team makes a first-round selection, memorabilia sales go through the roof as fans rush to get the latest jersey from their favorite team. But that isn’t the case with Harrison.

While there’s a great amount of fanfare surrounding Harrison’s arrival in Arizona, none of his Cardinals merchandise can even be purchased, because the NFLPA doesn’t have the licensing.

Before players are even drafted, they’re asked to sign an agreement with the NFL Players Association that allows their name and likeness to be monetized. Only, Harrison refused to sign his name on the dotted line, and many are wondering why.
