Leading sports apparel and athletic shoe firm Nike Inc on Thursday announced it had settled its lawsuit against NFL player Daunte Culpepper.

The Oregon-based company said as a result, the Minnesota Vikings player will continue to endorse and exclusively wear and use Nike products throughout the current NFL season.

Nike filed the suit in June after finding out Culpepper was planning to endorse rival Reebok’s products and appear in a TV advert.

Further terms of the settlement and of Culpepper's contract with Nike were not released.
