    After a rash of NFL related alcohol related incidents, league commissioner, Roger Goodell, decided in 2008 that alcohol was a No-No for endorsement

    Charles Woodson owns his own signature line of wines called TwentyFour. According to Woodson, TwentyFour "embodies the abundant blessings that surround us. This is a wine of pure enjoyment, gratitude, giving back and paying forward. From our cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy."

    So the NFL disapproves, as they have a policy that forbids NFL players from endorsing or promoting any kind of an alcoholic beverage. From Casually Obsessed:

    The NFL sent Woodson a note saying that any interviews supporting alcohol would be seen as an endorsement and "may have a detrimental effect on the great number of young fans who follow our game."

    I think it is a good rule. Kids are going to follow what individual players endorse, not the NFL as a whole. Just look at Beats vs Bose headphone sales.
