NCAA Football: Iowa State at Texas Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

As long as you’re a tight end on the Texas Longhorns’ roster, you’ll earn a four-figure salary.

That is, through the new “Burnt Ends” program, On3 reports.

From On3: “The creative “Burnt Ends” program will enable the Longhorns’ tight ends to monetize their Name, Image and Likeness by tapping into the zealous community within the popular Texas message board, Surly Horns, and beyond. Organizers are characterizing this initiative as the nation’s first fully crowdsourced NIL program, with all of the profits funneling directly to the Texas tight end room.”
