Bevo’s Daily Roundup: Texas RB Bijan Robinson signs NIL deal with BBQ restaurant Pinkerton’s

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Days Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Texas sophomore running back Bijan Robinson, one of the nation’s top up-and-coming athletes on the college football gridiron, loves barbecue. And for damn good reason.

In particular, Pinkerton’s Barbecue.

On Thursday, the restaurant announced it had signed Robinson to a name, image and likeness deal. It’s unclear how much the deal will be worth, but I do think it’s worth suggesting that Robinson will be well fed now and into the near future.
