Signing actual football players produced a 6-10 record last season, so the Dallas Cowboys have turned to superheroes for help.
Captain America, along with his friends Spider Man, Iron Man, Thor, X-Men and the Hulk, will be wearing the legendary Cowboys star in 2011.
DallasCowboys.com reports Jerry Jones football team has agreed to a licensing deal with the Marvel Entertainment to put the iconic Marvel superheroes in co-branded merchandise with team colors and logos.
Dallas is the only major sporting team in America to create, make and distribute its own merchandise. The team has a 400,000 square foot headquarters to handle its sales operation.
If the Cowboys can't win a sixth Super Bowl with Captain America on their roster, they'll never get another Lombardi Trophy.
