“The guarantee” is one of the most exciting things in all of professional sports. It shows a bit of confidence and ego and behalf of the predictor while also placing fans on the edge of their seats.
Some of the greatest guarantees of all time include Joe Namath’s promise to win Super Bowl III and Mark Messier’s guarantee that his New York Rangers would come from behind and defeat the New Jersey Devils in the 1994 Eastern Conference finals. Before long, we could be adding another guarantee to that list – wide receiver Sammy Watkins’ promise that the Buffalo Bills will win Super Bowl LII.
The former Clemson Tiger took to Twitter on Sunday morning, but it seemingly wasn’t with guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory on his mind. Instead, he wrote about NFL contracts, stating that he feels that professional football players should earn more money.
