The New York Giants may be parting ways with long-time running back Saquon Barkley. ESPN’s Jordan Raanan suggested that the Giants will not tag Barkley for a second time, indicating that he may become a free agent. Barkley was drafted by the Giants second overall in 2018 and has had a successful career with them, but contract negotiations have left him feeling jaded. He has expressed that he is numb to the idea of being tagged again and is open to being released. Despite a down year, the Giants relied heavily on Barkley in the 2023 season, but the debate over running back contracts is ongoing. The low pay for running backs despite their heavy workload is a major concern.
