The reigning Super Bowl champion has agreed to promote Maryland's Obamacare exchange, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

The nonprofit government watchdog said the Baltimore Ravens will get $130,000 to help state officials promote the Maryland Health Connection.

The deal was made official Sept. 9 between the Ravens and Maryland health officials despite an earlier NFL statement saying its teams wouldn't participate in the official public relations campaign for Obamacare.

When the partnership was announced, Judicial Watch filed a Maryland Public Information Act request for a copy of the contract and other details.

According to the sponsorship agreement between the Ravens and the Maryland Health Connection, the team will be paid to tout the Maryland Obamacare outlet on television, radio, the official team website, the team's newsletter and via social media.
