SJ - July 7, 2021

Giants running back Saquon Barkley is coming back from a torn ACL and he'll be doing so with a little more energy.  That's because he's getting into the energy drink game.

Saquon is buying an ownership stake in the energy game company X2 Performance.  The company works with over 25 pro sports franchises and provides them with energy drinks and pre-workout supplements.

From TMZ Sports:

Red Bull who, Monster what?? Saquon Barkley is entering the energy drink game in a big way ... buying an ownership stake in X2 Performance, TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told 24-year-old Barkley -- who missed most of last season with a torn ACL -- spearheaded a round of funding totaling $15 million ... making Saquon an owner in the growing brand.

Before bringing Barkley on board, X2 wasn't lacking star power ... NBA MVP Kawhi Leonard is also a part-owner of the company.

X2 says they work with over 25 professional sports franchises ... with whom they provide their energy drinks and pre-workout supplements.

You're never too young to start planning for life after football, especially coming off of an injury and having to return to the Giants as their best offensive weapon.  I just hope New York doesn't continue to waste his career.
