So long Papa John’s Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , hello Pizza Hut.

The NFL announced a multiyear marketing deal with Pizza Hut on Wednesday, one day after the league and Papa John’s said that they mutually agreed to cut ties. The league’s relationship with Papa John’s frayed last year when the pizza maker’s founder John Schnatter criticized NFL leadership over national anthem protests by players.

The Louisville, Kentucky-based Papa John’s says it will remain in football through marketing deals with 22 of the league’s 32 teams.

Pizza Hut said its marketing partnership with the NFL will begin with the league’s April 2018 draft in Arlington, Texas Mario Lemieux Jersey , just miles from the pizza restaurant’s headquarters in Plano.

Pizza Hut is owned by Yum Brands Inc.

Vince McMahon says he’s planning to spend what it takes to keep the XFL in business longer than just the one year it lasted in its first incarnation.

McMahon says he’s ready to spend $500 million over the first three seasons of the XFL, which is slated to launch in 2020, according to ESPN.

When McMahon first announced he was bringing the XFL back, he sold $100 million worth of WWE stock to get it off the ground. But that’s only a small part of the league’s expenses.

“People were focused on the $100 million Womens Jaroslav Halak Jersey , but the truth is that doesn’t even get us to the 20-yard line,” XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck told ESPN.

Luck said the biggest expense will be player and coach salaries, and Luck said the average XFL salary will be around $75,000 Gustav Forsling Jersey , with the possibility for well-known players to make significantly more than that.

Spending $500 million in three years sounds like a lot, but it’s a drop in the bucket compared to the NFL, which spends more than $5 billion a year just on player salaries.
