Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Saquon Barkley: I didn’t deserve Pro Bowl

Running back Saquon Barkley has no qualms about not being named to the Pro Bowl.

“I don’t think that I was even anywhere close or deserved to being in the Pro Bowl. Not shocked at that,” Barkley said. “Congrats to all of the running backs that it made, they had a heck of a year. Does it motivate me? No. What motivates me is that we’re going home in two weeks. That’s the only motivation that I have. We’re not in the playoff run, we’re not having the chance of the playoffs. That’s going to be my motivation this offseason.”
