Saquon Barkley got new spikes for his birthday — and there’s plenty more where that came from.
Barkley signed with Nike for athletic shoes and apparel on Friday. According to a press release, the deal was negotiated by Michael Yormark, President and Chief of Branding and Strategy at Roc Nation — where Barkley signed in January.
“Saquon is a generational talent — it’s only fitting that his apparel partner represents the same dedication to greatness,” Yormark said. “Our entire team at Roc Nation looks forward to working with Nike throughout Saquon’s NFL journey.”
The former Penn State running back was appreciative on social media, posting a video to Instagram and Twitter thanking Nike.
“I would like to say thank you to the Nike team for allowing me and my family to join their family,” Barkley said, “and making my birthday so special.”
