You can't make this one up. 

After being booked for shoplifting underwear a week ago, Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is now a spokesman for MeUndies, according to the company's head of marketing and business development, writes ESPN's Adam Schefter

MeUndies will pay Randle enough to help defray the cost of the $29,500 fine the Cowboys imposed on him after he was caught shoplifting last week while also supplying him with enough product that the Cowboys running back will have all the underwear he needs for a long time. ...

In partnership with MeUndies, Randle also will be donating upwards of $15,000 worth of underwear and basic apparel to children in need and making multiple appearances at Dallas-area schools and charities to speak to students about learning from their mistakes.

Randle was arrested Tuesday and fined later in the week by the team. He called the incident the biggest mistake of his life, and is trying "to turn a negative situation into a positive" by giving back to the Dallas community, MeUndies' Dan King said. 

"Partnering with MeUndies allows me the opportunity to give back to others less fortunate than myself, and spread a positive message of not making the same mistake twice," Randle said. 

We don't know about you, but we are certainly inspired.
