.The Browns quarterback made good on his friendly (but expensive) wager with Giants running back Saquon Barkley regarding the 2018 offensive rookie of the year prize. Barkley won the award White Wayne Gallman Jerseys , so Mayfield commissioned a gold-and-diamond chain that says “QUADS.”That’s a reference to Barkley’s enormous upper legs, and a truncated version of a nickname for which Barkley doesn’t particularly care: Saquad.“It’ll say ‘quads’ on it,” Mayfield said in February, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “Not ‘Saquads’ but just ‘quads.’ The two extra letters in there cost a little bit extra money, so we’ll stick with just ‘quads.'”Barkley was bracing for something like that, and possibly worse.“The bad thing about that is, the loser picks Wayne Gallman Jerseys 2019 , so I don’t get to pick,” Barkley said after winning the offensive rookie of the year award over Mayfield, via Cabot. “With Baker Mayfield, you never know what you’re going to get. But yeah, we made a little fun bet just to show that obviously we both want to win this award, but it’s bigger than us. . . . It’s about a friendship, and the love that we have for each other. But I did win White Sterling Shepard Jerseys , so I do get a chain and he gets to pick and whatever he picks I’m just going to wear it and that’s a gift.”Barkley now has it. And Mayfield hasn’t disclosed how much it cost.Hopefully, Mayfield didn’t buy it from Drew Brees‘ jeweler. Hopefully, Barkley won’t leave it unattended while he goes for a workout. The Bills didn’t know how the first round of the draft would unfold in front of them, but they did know one thing: They wanted to see more than one quarterback off the board in the first eight picks.Buffalo, drafting ninth, took quarterback Josh Allen in the first round last year and wasn’t interested in a quarterback this year. So as the Bills looked over their board, the best chance of getting one of their top-rated players was to have more than one quarterback selected among the first eight players.After Kyler Murray had already gone first overall and then the Giants took Daniel Jones sixth Sterling Shepard Jerseys 2019 , Bills G.M. Brandon Beane said he knew he wouldn’t trade down because one of their top prospects would still be there.“Once the quarterback was taken by the Giants, Daniel Jones, the board was sitting perfect. At that point, we knew we’re not moving back,” Beane said in a video published by the Bills.The video shows footage inside the Bills’ draft room of the team’s personnel people cheering when the ninth pick came up and Ed Oliver was still available. Oliver was one of the Bills’ favorite players, and a lot of mock drafts had him going off the board before the Bills picked. The Giants’ surprise decision paved the way for the Bills getting their man.
