New York Giants rerun Saquon Barkley has agreed to the terms of a one-year contract worth up to $11 million and will report to training camp, multiple media reports Tuesday morning
According to the report, the deal includes a $2 million signing bonus but doesn’t include a “no franchise card” clause. Therefore, the giant maybe tag him again after this season
The giant originally booked a franchise card for Barkley, valued at $10,091 million that will be operational again in 2023. The parties failed to come to a long-term agreement by the July 17 deadline, leaving a one-year pact as the only option.
He is guaranteed to earn the card amount and can add close to 1 million dollars if the incentives are hit.
Barkley, 26, was the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft after an active career at Penn State. He hit a career-high of 1,312 forward yards and 10 touchdowns in 16 games (all starting) last season before playing under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.
A two-time Pro Bowl pick, Barkley also took the team lead with 57 catches last season. He has 338 ball receptions.
In 60 games (all starting) over five seasons, Barkley covered 4,249 yards of the ground (4.5 yards per attempt) with 29 hasty touchdowns. He also caught 247 1,820 yard passes and 8 touchdowns.
