Giants, RB Saquon Barkley to reconvene about long-term deal

The New York Giants had conversations with Saquon Barkley's representatives last week. They'll "reconvene" now that the draft is over to see if there is a deal that makes sense for both sides at this point. An unhappy Barkley has not signed his franchise tag and therefore is not participating in the voluntary portion of the team's offseason program. The two sides were not able to reach an agreement on a new long-term deal prior to the tag deadline last month.

Regardless of what you may think of Daniel Jones, it makes sense that the team made the quarterback a priority during the offseason if that's who they think will be their franchise signal-caller. Barkley has a right to be upset, but he also has a risky injury history that the team needs to take into account.

The Giants didn't add a ton to their pass-catching group through the NFL Draft, so if a deal can get done, and Barkley remains healthy, he should have a good chance to operate as the main cog of the team's offense.
