Saquon Barkley Signs Endorsement Deal With Nike

Saquon Barkley became the first draft-eligible player to sign an endorsement deal ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft, officially putting pen to paper with Nike on Friday.

The exact terms of Barkley’s agreement with Nike haven’t been released yet, but the star running back will continue to represent the brand that outfits Penn State’s athletic department and the NFL as he begins his NFL career.

Barkley is an extremely marketable player, as he is likely to be selected somewhere within the first ten picks of the 2018 NFL Draft. The star tailback finished his Penn State career with 3,843 rushing yards and 51 total touchdowns in three seasons, winning a Big Ten title in 2016 and the Fiesta Bowl in 2017.

Saquon Barkley’s next step is the NFL Scouting Combine, which he was officially invited to along with seven of his Penn State teammates on Tuesday. The combine will take place from February 27 to March 5 and Barkley will likely learn his NFL destination on Thursday, April 26 during round one of the NFL Draft. It will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
