The early reports said Rory McIlroy stands to sign a 10-year, $250 million deal with Nike.
Bob Harig hears that the original number may be inflated. Severely.
But make no mistake, McIlroy is going to be paid handsomely to do so. Various reports have pegged that number at $20 million a year over 10 years, although the estimates are apparently inflated and the terms of the deal shorter. Still, what if it is "only" $10 million a year?
