Marquez Valdes-Scantling Looks to Replace “The Cheetah” in Kansas City

The NFL offseason brings a plethora of changes for all teams and many players. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, a former fifth round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers, has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after four years in Green Bay. The Chiefs were in need of another speedy threat after Tyreek Hill departed for the Miami Dolphins. Now, MVS will look to make the sure high-powered Chiefs offense does not miss “The Cheetah” too much.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling with the Green Bay Packers

Marquez Valdes-Scantling first took the field for the Green Bay Packers in 2018. Though a later round pick, he played in all 16 games. MVS hauled in 38 receptions for 581 yards and two touchdowns. In 2019, he again played all 16 games catching 26 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns.

2020 saw Valdes-Scantling have a career year for the Green Bay Packers. Again playing in all 16 games, MVS had 33 receptions for 690 yards and six touchdowns. He also led the NFL with 20.9 yards per reception. In the Packers loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC title game, MVS was the lone bright spot on offense. He had four receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.

Last season, Marquez Valdes-Scantling played in 11 out of 17 games. He had 26 receptions for 430 yards and three touchdowns. While this may seem to indicate a drop in production, Chiefs fans can be encouraged by this: MVS had zero drops in 2021. Once considered a weakness in his game, it has become a strength.

Can Marquez Valdes-Scantling Replace Tyreek Hill?

Of course, few wide receivers can boast the same accomplishments of Tyreek Hill during his tenure with the Chiefs. Six Pro Bowls and three First Team All-Pro selections are remarkable achievements. Hill also had over 1,000 yards receiving in four of his six seasons with the Chiefs.

While it may not seem like MVS is up to the task, one must keep in mind that MVS never received the number of targets that Hill did. The most targets MVS ever had in a season was 73, and that was in his rookie season. The fewest Hill ever had in a season was 83, also in his rookie season.

The Kansas City Chiefs have also signed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuester. He brings a much different skill-set to the Chief’s offense than MVS. Additionally, MVS will be in an offense that is better suited to his style of play. What this all means is that MVS is sure to see more targets with the Chiefs. This will undoubtedly lead to more production and better numbers.

Can MVS replace Tyreek Hill? He has a better chance than most.

Merchandise Price List

MSM Merchandise Price List

If you’re looking for a way to increase sales and improve overall brand awareness, prominent sports figures are attractive options. Their athletic prowess gives them instant credibility to any product, particularly anything related to those geared towards athletes. With that being said, their celebrity alone will influence fans to want to be like them and be associated with the same products or services. Your business would most likely benefit from this association, and this is true whether it’s a big name or not and for pretty much any type of product, service, or business. 

Increased Sales

While the actual influence celebrity athletes have regarding advertising is a matter of debate, a Harvard University professor and Barclays Capital conducted a study that indicated sales growth compared to their previous numbers and overall placement in the market as well. The study showed an average increase of around 4%, with more considerable gains from those with higher status. Fans of a particular team or specific athlete will be more inclined to purchase a product or use a service endorsed by them. 

Increased Awareness 

One key aspect of growing your brand is making people aware of your brand. Attaching a local or national athlete quickly raises awareness for anyone who’s a fan of that individual or the team for which they play. Once people are aware of your brand’s products or services, they would be more likely to purchase from you. A potential customer’s favorable feelings towards the celebrity athlete can and often will translate to your company. Aaron Rodger's State Farm commercials and Brett Favre's Wrangler commercials are just a couple of examples. 

Social media promotion by an athlete can increase that awareness even more. According to Opendorse, athletes on social media drive 4.8 times the engagement of media accounts, 3.6 times the engagement of league accounts, 2.4 times the engagement of team accounts, and 2.1 times the engagement of influencer accounts. It just goes to show how associating your brand with an athlete can push awareness and engagement through the roof. 

Utilize Local Celebrity Athletes

Keep it local, and consider using a celebrity athlete from your home team. A small business that uses a local athlete of any profile brings much-wanted attention and awareness to your brand and business. For example, in Green Bay or anywhere in the state of Wisconsin, having any member of the Green Bay Packers at your event or endorsing your product will generate interest and get more eyes on you. Sticking to someone who is known and admired or associated with a known and admired team, locally and with your target market, pays huge dividends. 

Ways to Include Celebrity Athletes

Once you’ve decided to utilize a celebrity athlete to help market your product or service, you need to know how to utilize a celebrity athlete. There are various ways to do so, and whichever way you choose will depend on what’s the best fit for your business and your products or services. The first way would be to have them endorse your brand. An endorsement could be digital, radio, print, television, etc., advertising depending on where you’re most likely to find your target market. 

If you have an event coming up, having a celebrity appearance will bring more attention and most likely increase attendance. You can add an autograph signing session as part of your event or even have the signing be the event that you’re hosting. Either way, associating the celebrity athlete with your brand is the key. You can also sponsor a celebrity athlete to do a motivational speech for a local school or organization. Approaching your relationship this way gives the double whammy of giving back to the community as well as associating you with the athlete.

Mayfield Sports Marketing is a leading sports marketing agency and speaker bureau. Whether your company is small or large, our team can search our network of current and retired celebrity athletes available based on appearance fees, team, location, or sport. With access to hundreds of athletes available for corporate appearances, keynote or motivational speeches, and product endorsements, we work within your budget to match your goals with an athlete’s appearance.

Even though there won’t be a physical Pro Bowl game played this year, the honor for being selected as a 2021 Pro Bowlers does not change. Athletes are chosen for the Pro Bowl by coaches, players, and fans, with each contingent making up one-third of the vote. We here at Mayfield Sports Marketing would like to celebrate the seven of our home state Packers who were selected along with a few other players across the league.

Za’Darius Smith

After being snubbed last year, Za’Darius Smith gets the selection he rightfully deserves for the 2021 Pro Bowl. After 15 games this season, Smith is tied for third in the NFL with 12.5 sacks and tied for fifth in tackles for loss as well as 34 solo tackles and 16 assists. Over his two seasons with the Packers, Smith has garnered 26 sacks, the first Packer to have 11+ sacks in back to back seasons since Aaron Kampman accomplished the feat in 2006.

NFL Network’s pre-season list of the top 100 players in the NFL featured Smith at number 48. USA Today’s touchdown wire had him ranked as the number one edge defender, and Pete Prisco of CBS Sports had Smith as number 28 overall of all NFL players.

Davante Adams

For an amazing fourth consecutive year, Davante Adams has been selected to the 2021 Pro Bowl. With separation ability second to none with a lightning-fast release and rapid footwork along with an uncanny ability to make contested catches deep down the field, Adams has placed himself among the elite receivers not just of this season but in history. He finished the season with 115 catches and 18 touchdown receptions, only the third ever to exceed 100 catches and 16 touchdown receptions in a single season. 

While all three Packer’s single-season receiving records were in range going into the last game, Adams was able to break the receptions record of 112 previously held by Sterling Sharpe in 1993. He tied the receiving touchdowns record, also set by Sterling Sharpe in 1994. He came up just shy of Jordy Nelson’s reception yards record of 1519 yards set in 2014. Adams ended the season with 1374 yards. 

The fact that he broke one record, tied another, and got so close to another is made even more incredible by the fact he missed nearly three full games to injury. There are no guarantees, of course, but it would certainly seem very likely that all three records would have fallen if Adams had a full season to work, but it’s an amazing feat nonetheless. 

Jaire Alexander

If you have been watching the Packers closely, you know that Jaire Alexander is a star. Becoming widely-known as a shutdown corner, currently ranked number two by Pro Football Focus, Alexander is getting the attention of opposing quarterbacks. Last season, Alexander was targeted 6.9 times per game. This year that number dipped to about 5.5 targets per game. After allowing a quarterback rating of only 85.8 last year, he has improved that number to 71.3 this year. 

David Bakhtiari

Currently sitting at number two on Pro Football Focus’s ranking of offensive tackles, David Bakhtiari has been selected to his third pro bowl. Widely regarded as one of the league's best tackles in the game, Bakhtiari has continued to build upon those accolades. A big reason for the Packers’ success this season has stemmed from the stellar protection of future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. David Bakhtiari, as the blindside tackle, is a huge reason for that. Unfortunately, after a freak injury at a non-contact practice, the Packers will be forced to make their Super Bowl run without Bakhtiari, putting a damper on their chances. 

Elgton Jenkins

Versatility. That is Elgton Jenkins to an absolute T. Officially, he’s a left guard, but he possesses the scarce ability to not only play anywhere on the line but excel at all three positions. This year has seen him play guard, tackle, and center while only allowing a single sack overall. Usually, an offensive lineman is played on a single position, occasionally playing their position on the other side of the line, not so with Jenkins, who will move around to cover any position based on injury and those available to fill in. When center Corey Lindsey was injured, Jenkins moved to that spot to more easily fill the guard position. And again, Jenkins excelled. 

Aaron Jones

Currently sitting fourth in rushing yards, twelfth in rushing touchdowns, and first on runs of 40 plus yards, Aaron Jones was selected to his first-ever Pro Bowl after many feeling that he was snubbed last year. With one game remaining, he has accrued eight rushing touchdowns this season. If he can get two more, he’ll become only the second Packer ever, Jim Taylor the other, with consecutive seasons with double-digit touchdowns and over 1,000 rushing yards. 

Aaron Rodgers

In a Hall of Fame career with many amazing seasons, Aaron Rodgers is putting together one of the best in 2020, comparable only to his MVP season in 2011. A front runner to win the MVP again this year was selected to his ninth Pro Bowl for 2021, tying the Packers record for Pro Bowl selections. Currently, he sits sixth in passing yards, second in completion percentage, first in quarterback rating, first in touchdown to interception rating with an incredible 8.8 TDs per interception thrown, first in touchdown passes, and first in interception percentage. 

Dalvin Cook - Vikings

After leading the fan voting for the top NFC running back, Dalvin Cook will return to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year. Cook is currently second in the NFL in rushing yards and tenth among RBs for yards per carry. He’s also leading the league in yards from scrimmage, rushes for first downs, and tied for the lead for rushing touchdowns. 

Alvin Kamara - Saints

In his fourth season, Alvin Kamara has again been selected to the Pro Bowl, making a Pro Bowl nod for each season he’s been in the league. On Christmas Day, Kamara rushed for 155 yards and tied the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns in a single game with six, a record established and never touched in 91 years. 

Darius Leonard - Colts

Despite a historic rookie season in 2018, Darius Leonard did not make the Pro Bowl that year. He has, however, been selected the past two years. Currently, he is sitting tied for ninth in the league in tackles. Displaying an incredible knack for making game-changing impact plays, look for Leonard to make many more Pro Bowls to come. 

Xavian Howard - Dolphins

Xavian Howard is leading the league in passes defended and interceptions and in contention for Defensive Player of the Year. Being selected to his second Pro Bowl, the other being at the conclusion of the 2018 season, he’s one of the best players on one of the top defenses this year. He needs one more interception to tie the franchise record set in 1967.

Packers Corey Linsley autograph session coming soon. Mayfield Sports is working with E-5 Sports once again. This time a private signing with Green Bay center and former Buckeye Corey Linsley on December 1st. This is Corey's first signing since 2015!

Although we are just five games into the Green Bay Packers’ 2020 season, there has already been plenty of discussion surrounding the upcoming free-agent class. Of course, this group includes David Bakhtiari, Aaron Jones, Kevin King, and perhaps the least talked about free agent, Corey Linsley.

Linsley tends to fly under the radars of many in part due to the position that he plays. However, what can’t be overlooked is just how good Linsley has been over his career, especially this season. Since entering the NFL back in 2014, Linsley has been incredibly durable, playing every offensive snap in three of those seasons, including back-to-back years in 2017 and 2018, along with not missing a start since 2016. On top of that, he’s also excellent at making adjustments pre-snap.

And when discussing Linsley, we also have to mention the chemistry that he has with Aaron Rodgers and his ability to remain still with the best cadence and hard-count in the game. A task that certainly isn’t an easy one, as Linsely told Packers.com recently:

“It’s very, very complex,” said Linsley of Rodgers’ cadence. “It’s not like we’re sending rockets up into space or anything … but it’s complex enough to where being on the same page as him takes a lot of time and effort from studying, playing, all of that. It takes a concerted effort to get used to his cadence.”

As far as this year goes, according to Pro Football Focus, as a pass blocker, Linsley’s 158 pass-blocking snaps are the most by any offensive linemen without allowing a single pressure. This, of course, gives him the highest pass-blocking efficiency rating out of all centers in the NFL. Site Paul Bretl

Jonathan Taylor of the Wisconsin Badgers rushed for 6,174 yards (plus scored 50 touchdowns) during his three-year tenure as one of the top running backs in college football. In fact, Taylor ran for more yards in three seasons than anyone in college football history. The former New Jersey native broke the record of Herschel Walker of the Georgia Bulldogs, who had rushed for 5,596 yards in three years.

Unlike Walker, Taylor never won the Heisman Trophy, but he did win back-to-back Doak Walker Awards in 2018 and 2019. Taylor is one of three running backs to ever win two Doak Walker Awards, with the others being Ricky Williams and Darren McFadden.Taylor was less than 1,000 yards away from becoming the all-time leading rusher in college football history when he decided to move on to the NFL after the 2020 Rose Bowl. Former Badger Ron Dayne rushed for 7,125 yards in four years at Wisconsin and Taylor would have easily broken that mark (barring injury) had he returned for his senior year.

Taylor showed his versatility his junior year at Wisconsin, as he caught 26 passes, which was 10 more than his freshman and sophomore year combined, for 252 yards and five scores.

That versatility and the blazing speed of Taylor were apparent at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. NFL Scout Chris Landry was very impressed.

“Taylor is in a battle for the top running back spot in this class," Landry said. "While D’Andre Swift did not drop the ball this evening (figuratively or literally), Taylor wowed with his performance. He was the only back to run the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds (4.39 — at 226 pounds). His feet were blurs when required to go over the often dreaded blue pads in drills. Taylor’s cuts were not as quick and effortless as those of Swift, Darrynton Evans or Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but his speed and vision have allowed him to find and exploit holes over the past three years for the Badgers. Despite the lack of receptions early in his collegiate career, Taylor looked natural snatching passes during workouts, grabbing high throws and others that were far from his frame. Scouts will forgive him for running out of his shoe on one rep.”
Basedon Landry's assessment, expect to hear Taylor's name being announced as early as Round 1 in the 2020 NFL draft, which takes place on April 23.

One of Wisconsin’s all-time favorite sports legends and quarterback for the Super Bowl XXXI Champion Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre, is now booking appearances nationwide!

Brett Favre: Hall of Fame Talent

As a three-time Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player, the 2007 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, and a member of both the Pro Football and Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, Brett Favre is a truly a time-honored, all-American sports legend. Due in part to his incredible level of play and remarkable toughness, Favre is beloved not only in Wisconsin but across the globe.

Even people who aren’t sports fans know Favre through his numerous endorsements with such business luminaries as Copper Fit, Wrangler, Sensodyne, and MasterCard. He is also active in charitable endeavors through the impactful Brett Favre Fourward Foundation.

There are few athletes as accomplished as Mr. Favre, and Mayfield Sports Marketing is beyond proud to work with Wisconsin’s favorite adopted son.

For sports fans, there is no greater thrill than being able to meet a celebrity athlete in person. Even better is getting an autograph and taking home proof that you have spent time in the presence of a sports hero. When your business associates with current athletes like Alvin Kamara and Melvin Gordon or a former superstar like Brett Favre, customers take notice!

If you are a business or nonprofit, autograph sessions can take your event to the next level. They are guaranteed to increase turnout and attention to your business. For foundations and nonprofits, having an auction of autographed items is a surefire way to bump up interest and raise considerable funds.

Some Tips For Successful Autograph Sessions

Brett Favre and Alvin Kamara

The most important decision you will make is to decide what athlete you want to have. You don’t have to try and book an athlete yourself. An established sports marketing agency will have connections to connect and hopefully book the athlete you want. They can also discuss with you what you hope to accomplish at your event and provide choices you might not have thought of.

For a foundation or nonprofit, keep in mind that athletes often have a favorite charity or cause they want to promote. You will have more success in booking an athlete if your organization promotes a cause that is near and dear to the athlete’s heart.

While everyone seems to want a current star athlete, there are other options. Often, former athletes, especially Hall of Famers like Jerry Kramer or Paul Molitor, are big draws. Another general rule of thumb is “even minor stars are major draws”. Minor league players, team broadcasters, coaches, and athletes who were stars in college can all increase turnout and provide significant positive exposure for your business. Keep your options open!

Have a wide variety of things available to be signed. Also, make sure to get some extra signatures for people to purchase later if they can’t make it to the event.

Finally, promote, promote, promote! It’s not just advertising the event beforehand. It’s also vital to promote afterward through social media postings and other advertisements. A celebrity athlete provides star power and credibility to your business. Take advantage of that and create interest in when your next event will be taking place!

The Gilbert Brown tailgate party returned to Stadium View Sports Bar and Banquet Hall yesterday with Super Bowl Champion Eugene Robinson and Green Bay Packer Hall of Famer Ahman Green to get the fans ready for the Packer’s game against the Denver Broncos. Rain may have moved the party inside but didn’t keep the fans away from the fun with hundreds of Packer, and even a few Bronco fans stopping by to say “Hi” while grabbing an autograph and selfie of their favorite players.

Eugene Robinson

Coming to Green Bay from Seattle in 1995, Robinson recorded 55 tackles and led the Packers with eight interceptions as the team went on to become Super Bowl XXXI Champions, beating the New England Patriots, Robinson’s hometown team, 35-21. In 1999 Robinson was awarded the Bart Starr Award, presented to an NFL player exemplifying outstanding leadership and character in the community, on the field, and in the home.  

Ahman Green

The Packer’s all-time leading rusher, Ahman Green played 8 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers before retiring as one in 2009. During his tenure with Green Bay, he made four trips to the Pro Bowl (2001-2004) and was the NFC Offensive Player of the Year (2003). Green was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Football Hall of Fame on July 19, 2014. 

Stadium View Sports Bar and Banquet Hall

Few establishments as large as Stadium View have remained in a single family for as long as they have, entering their 27th Packer season as the favorite local “Mom & Pop” sports bar to meet up with friends and catch the game. Mayfield Sports Marketing and Gilbert Brown were honored when second-generation owners Bob and Amanda Watson approached them about teaming up to host the Exclusive Gilbert “The Gravedigger” Brown Tailgate Party before each Packer home game. With a full staff that is second to none when it comes to cold drinks, delicious food, and fun there is no better place to start the game day experience than at Stadium View Sports Bar and Banquet Hall.
