DALLAS - Dannon Yogurt signed Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott the same day it announced it would no longer work with Cam Newton after he made sexist remarks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday.

Dannon is the 11th company to enter into an endorsement deal with Prescott. The quarterback has agreements with 7-Eleven, AT&T, Beats by Dre, Campbell's Chunky Soup, DirecTV, Nicholas Air, New Era Cap, Pepsi, Panini and Tostito's.

ESPN's Darren Rovell said the agreements total more than $2.7 million.

Dannon distanced itself from Newton after he made sexist remarks toward a female Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue on Wednesday.

Rodrigue said, "I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well. Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards, does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck-sticking people out there?"

To which Newton replied, "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes like that -- it's funny."

Newton issued an apology a day after the incident, but according to ESPN, Dannon Yogurt had moved on by then.
