Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is a New York Giant.
The Giants have responded to taking him at No. 2 in the 2018 NFL draft on Thursday night, so it was then his turn to post his response.
Barkley took to Twitter to do so about 45 minutes after being selected.
Blessed to be a member of the @Giants! Thank you for believing in me. You won't be disappointed. I'm ready to work! Already got my #NFLDraft card on #PaniniInstant. Check it out! https://t.co/IYvU7RTqjc pic.twitter.com/HrsRWGkfAu

Here’s what Barkley said: “Blessed to be a member of the Giants! Thank you for believing in me. You won’t be disappointed. I’m ready to work!”
He then had an ad for his NFL Draft card which is pictured above.
It’s been a crazy week for Barkley, who became a father to his first child, a daughter named Jada Clare Barkley on Tuesday night.
Now, he’ll be living his NFL dreams in New York City right near where he grew up.
