Milwaukee Brewers player Ryan Braun has had his contract with Nike terminated and is also suspended for the rest of the season amid the Biogenesis drug scandal.

Braun no longer has a relationship with Nike, a spokesman told ESPN on Friday. Braun had been wearing Nike gear for his entire seven-year career, and the company recently began selling T-shirts related to him in stores.

Braun was connected about two years ago with the Biogenesis scandal. Biogenesis is a clinic where MLB players took performance enhancing drugs. 

Braun was suspended for 65 games, the rest of this year’s season, last week.
