Giants’ Saquon Barkley longs for a return to playoff football

No one is sure of the fate of New York Giants star running back Saquon Barkley as the team heads into the offseason.

The Giants are currently home watching the playoffs this year after making a mini-run in the postseason last year at this time.

Barkley is one player who would love to get back to the playoffs, whether that be with the Giants or not.

Barkley will be a free agent this March unless he and the Giants can come to some kind of contract agreement, or the Giants place the franchise tag on him again, which is their option.

Should the Giants choose to do the latter, it will cost them approximately $12.4 million for this season, which is much more than they want to pay Barkley for one season.

A longer-term deal seems unlikely as well unless there is a load of upfront guaranteed money to Barkley, which is another road the Giants would rather not go down.
