New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley admits that his dad is going to keep rooting for the Jets, according to ESPN. His father, Alibay, has been a fan of the Jets for years. "So is he going to root for the Jets? Yes, but he's going to root for the Giants and his son at the same time," Barkley said. His dad loves the Jets so much he even has a Jets tattoo on his forearm and plans to keep wearing the Joe Namath jersey his son bought him before he was in the NFL. The elder Barkley said he would think about a Giants tattoo on the other forearm if Saquon won a Super Bowl with the team. "He's got work to do," Alibay Barkley said. "Until then, it's Jets and that's what."
