Giants star Saquon Barkley is all in on the Bitcoin train
Saquon Barkley is headed into his fourth season with the New York Giants and has just announced on The Best Business Show he will be putting 100% of his endorsement money into the popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
“You see KDs, the LeBrons, the Bradys of the world and you want to create generational wealth. You can’t do that…. especially in the sport I play and the position I play coming off of injury,” Barkley said.
Saquon Barkley becomes the fourth NFL player to invest parts of their earnings towards Bitcoin. Russell Okung, Trevor Lawrence, and Sean Culkin have all announced within the past year that they will accept at least part of their salary as cryptocurrency.
Barkley has been on top of managing his money since the second he entered the league. Following winning NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year, he signed endorsement deals worth $4.5 million, inking contracts with top brands such as Nike, Pepsi, Visa, Dunkin’ Donuts, and more.
He is now fresh off a very frightening ACL injury in 2021, but we all expect him to go back to record-breaking Saquon Barkley with the Giants due to all the work he puts in. He was No. 6 in NFL jersey sales coming off his electric 1,300 yard rookie season, imagine the amount of endorsement money he could garner once he gets consistently healthy.
