It should come as no surprise, but Saquon Barkley has signed an endorsement deal with Nike.

While there are no details on the agreement between the brand and Barkley, one can only assume that Nike ponied up with a lucrative offer to sign the Penn State back. Out of the entire crop of NFL draft prospects, there are few with the brand potential of Barkley. A fantastic player on the field, Barkley is as likable a person off the field as anyone in the class. This should be just the beginning for Barkley when it comes to sponsors and endorsement deals.
