Want Matt Barkley to give you a shoutout? Pay $49 and he’ll do it!

This is an interesting (?) way for Barkley to make some extra cash.

Have you ever wished an NFL player would wish you a happy birthday or give you a random shoutout?

Well, Bengals quarterback Matt Barkley is offering just that.

Is there a catch? Of course there’s a catch!

Barkley is charging $49 via a website called for cameo videos where he’ll say happy birthday, give you a shoutout, or say basically whatever you want in a short video message. He invites you to be creative and tell him what he can do to offer you an unforgettable video message.

Barkley has made a few of these cameo videos so far including birthday messages, graduation congratulations and more.

This seems like a really weird way for Barkley to spend his spare time and an even weirder way for an NFL quarterback to make some money. But, apparently this is something Barkley is enjoying.

Barkley signed a two-year, $3,100,000 contract with the Bengals this offseason, which included a $250,000 signing bonus. In 2018, Barkley will earn a base salary of $1,000,000, a roster bonus of $250,000 and a workout bonus of $275,000.

But, he’ll add on some extra cash with these videos, too. So if you’re interested in getting Barkley to talk on video about you, a friend or a family member, click here and get your credit card information ready.

Former Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats is also offering up these videos for fans, and he’s only charging $20! Meanwhile, Terrell Owens is doing it, too, while charing a whopping $500!
