Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham have become fast friends

The consensus appears to be that, eventually, the NFL will enrich itself from this in multiple ways while framing it all in ways that assure the game’s integrity won’t be any more threatened than it is now. The message being spread now is the NFL has been preparing for this for a while, since before the Supreme Court agreed to take the case.
