Saquon Barkley Seeking New Contract
For weeks, Saquon Barkley had been trying to acquire a new agreement from the New York Giants after they employed their franchise tag on him earlier this offseason. July 17 was the due date for a new pact to be settled, and that cutoff passed without a deal.
Barkley to Play on Franchise Tag
As a result, Barkley will have to play the 2023 season on the franchise tag, yet according to Adam Schefter, he isn’t anticipated to report to training camp, and it is unknown when he will join his teammates.
New York’s Only Offensive Threat
Barkley is New York’s sole genuine threat on offense, despite the fact that they added tight end Darren Waller, who has recorded more than 1,100 yards twice, this offseason.
Surprising Run in 2022
The Giants managed to astound the league in 2022 by winning six of their initial seven games and upsetting the 13-4 Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card round, however they did as such with an offense that was far from dynamic.
Though Saquon Barkley is New York’s only offensive threat, they were able to have a successful run in 2022. Unfortunately, Barkley will have to play the 2023 season on the franchise tag and it is unknown when he will join his teammates.
