Penn State Running Back Saquon Barkley Joins Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports
The notable future NFL star running back, Saquon Barkley, signed on the dotted line with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency.
Saquon Barkley, a solid running back who puts up major numbers, has decided to take his talents to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency. The decision was made official yesterday, Wednesday, Jan. 3, when Barkley posted a photo of himself with Hova.
In addition to Barkley, who ran for 1271 yards alone in his 2017 season, Roc Nation Sports also has running back Leonard Fournette (Jacksonville Jaguars), running back Todd Gurley (Los Angeles Rams), and wide receiver Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys). “It was a really easy decision,” Barkley said, per ESPN. “A lot of people came around my way, but they were focused on me and they did a great job at selling my family on setting me up for life, bringing value outside of football. I felt like it was harder for other agencies to pitch that family feel when they were working with 30 or 40 guys.”
Barkley has put the NFL on notice, ensuring them that he’s more than just a running threat, and that opponents should plan to be in for a long day when he’s on the field.
Keep an eye on where Saquon Barkley ends up when this year’s NFL Draft takes place April 26 at AT&T Stadium in Texas.
