Who will win next weekend's Super Bowl showdown, the New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons? Who cares! (It's the Falcons.) What matters is that you win -- win in the career game, that is. And, if you're a lawyer with a passion for pig skin, you can.

In honor of Super Bowl LI, and as part of our affiliate relationship with Indeed, we're bringing you the three coolest, football-related legal jobs we could find this week.

1. 2017 NFL Summer Legal Internship

Are you a law student? Considering a career in sports law, or in-house work generally? Here ya go. The National Football League is hiring 1 and 2Ls for its summer internship program.

As a summer law clerk for the NFL's management counsel, you'd provide legal counsel and support on everything from labor relations to litigation. Yep, that could cover things like bargaining with the NFL Players Association and fending off those pesky concussion law suits. Plus, it's the NFL. What more could you want?

2. Assistant Athletic Director of Compliance, West Virginia University

College football is almost as big as the big leagues, and in some places bigger. You could be part of it as an assistant compliance director at West Virginia University. WVU is looking for someone to ensure that its athletics program complies with university policies and NCAA regulations.

Sure, this isn't technically a legal position, but compliance spots are becoming increasingly popular for attorneys and J.D.s who are looking for new ways to use their legal skills. If that sounds like you, it's worth checking out.

3. Corporate Counsel, Glu Mobile

Glu offers football without the concussions -- and without the football, either. This app maker is the company behind Tap Sports Football, Tap Sports Baseball, and Deer Hunter, as well as less-sporty games like Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. They're looking for an attorney who wants to joint their legal team at the "cutting edge of the mobile gaming industry."

As corporate counsel, you'd be responsible for negotiating and managing commercial transactions, dealing with privacy-related matters, and protecting the businesses intellectual property. They're looking for someone with a few years of experience, particularly working on commercial agreements.
