Giants rookie Saquon Barkley buys parents a house

New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley has kept a childhood promise by buying a house for his parents.

Barkley, who was the second overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft, on Wednesday posted an Instagram photo of himself standing in front of the house with a “sold” sign on the front lawn.

“Something I promised my parents, ever since I was a young kid,” he wrote in the caption for the photo. “Finally be able to achieve that goal is the most amazing feeling. Every kid out there that has a dream continue to keep your head down and work your butt off, great things will come along the way.”

TMZ reported that the 3,355-square foot house was last listed at $424,500 and features four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It is located in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, about 90 minutes away from MetLife Stadium, the Giants’ home stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The 21-year-old former Penn State star had said before the draft that his first big purchase would be a house for his parents.

His rookie contract, which will pay him a guaranteed $31.5 million over four years, helped make that a reality.
