Packers agree to terms with Giants safety Xavier McKinney

The New York Giants and general manager Joe Schoen do not believe in spending big money on the running back and safety positions.

Coincidentally, the team’s two biggest free agents manned those positions — Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney.

A few hours into free agency, the Giants received the devastating news that Barkley had agreed to terms with their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, on a three-year contract.

Although the Giants were prepared to lose Barkley, there was obvious hope that he’d land somewhere outside of the division. He did not and McKinney will also remain within the conference.

In another shot across the bow, the Green Bay Packers swooped in and picked McKinney up on Monday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Packers and McKinney have agreed to terms on a four-year deal.

More to come…
