New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who are close friends away from the game of football, had an interesting bet leading up to the NFL Honors Awards Show prior to Super Bowl LIII.
With both in the running for the 2018 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, Mayfield and Barkley wagered a chain, with the winner buying the loser a new necklace and pendant.
Although the vote was close, Barkley walked away the winner, which means it’s now time for Mayfield to pay up. And he intends to, but not without poking a little fun at his friend.
Asked on Wednesday how he plans to settle the bet, Mayfield told reporters Barkley will get a new pendant that read, “Quads.”
Barkley had hoped to escape the “Quads” and “SaQuads” nickname that was so kindly given to him by Odell Beckham Jr., but Mayfield clearly intends on keeping that very much alive.
