Five former NFL and basketball stars celebrated the beginning of a new era in sports. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a bill that will make it illegal to have an insurance policy that bans or limits coverage of “pre-existing conditions” such as obesity or diabetes. In other states, similar laws are making their way through the legislative process.

College football and basketball players who once competed in these two popular sports have a chance to make a living coaching other players.

Thursday, for the first time, college athletes can use their name, image and likeness without risking losing their playing rights.

The decision comes after the NCAA decided to suspend rules prohibiting athletes from selling their footage. It is the result of years of debate, a U.S. Supreme Court ruling and new laws passed in several states across the country. Some college athletes have even started signing contracts to provide products.

This is a big day for college athletes as they can now all enjoy their name, likeness and likeness, NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a statement.

Former Duke basketball player J.J. Redick tweeted Thursday night: I would make a bag [of money] from VOID endorsements.

Redick – a two-time All-American with the Blue Devils and one of the most celebrated college athletes of the era – is probably right.

In 2004-2006, I was raiding VOID endorsements. Unfortunately, I would have wasted all that money on a Natty Light and a Lacoste polo (with the collar ripped off, of course).

Now that these laws are in place, other prominent former college athletes are calling attention to what the next generation of players can do.

To all student-athletes -….. HAPPY DAY ZERO! Keep practicing your craft by making the craft work for you. Get to the point. Be the mark. Watch out, Uncle Sam!

Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, winner of the Heisman Trophy in 2012, was suspended in 2013 for accepting money for autographs. He used the ad to give athletes business and marketing tips.

Start your own business. Create a Shopify account. Product development, shipping and distribution, and customer service. Reach your fans directly on Twitter/IG. Make bank, brothers.

With the volume you’re going to do, you don’t need to order a ton of products in advance. Put the product on sale and print it with every order so you don’t have excess product. I learned that lesson the hard way.

Former Colorado wide receiver and U.S. National Ski Team member Jeremy Bloom could boost his skiing career. He defied the NCAA to maintain his eligibility and continue to make money as a skier, but the NCAA declared him permanently ineligible in 2006. Bloom used this week’s news as a victory lap for her struggles and those of other college athletes in similar positions.

David finally defeated Goliath. It took a village, but we did it. We finally did it. https://t.co/SkCvwgNYxz

I can’t stop thinking about Aaron Adair. The young man who kicked @ncaa off the Oklahoma baseball team for writing a book about surviving brain cancer. Today’s the day for you, Aaron.

I’m reminded of Donald De La Haye. A UCF kicker who was declared permanently ineligible by the NCAA because he has a YouTube channel. Today for you @Deestroying
