Raiders' Jacoby Ford's image was used along with four other NFL players to promote the world's largest expo of porn stars, and the wideout is not happy about it.

The National Football League is investigating an ad for the Exxxotica Expo, which featured Ford, the Chiefs defensive backs Brandon Flowers and Eric Berry, Bears safety Major Wright and Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson in their uniforms.

The league has a strict policy of players endorsing events or products in their team uniform's without permission from the league but in this instance it appears the expo did not even have permission from the players.

Ford tweeted to his 18,405 fans that he "wasn't even in town" for the event and Berry is threatening legal action.

The league may be pushing legal action on its own, once it concludes its investigation.
