Good morning, New York Giants fans!

New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley showing signs he’s back to top form

“He looks like he’s back,” a pro personnel director who watched him recently told ESPN. “It looks like he has the explosiveness back, the power back, he’s a mismatch out of the backfield like you saw [Sunday]. Maybe the first week or two he looked hesitant, but it looked like he trusted it against New Orleans.”

Eli Manning scoffed at the Chargers’ Antonio Gates pitch

“The whole Antonio Gates deal, I remember them talking to me about him,” Manning said during a “10 Questions with Kyle Brandt” that was released Wednesday on Spotify. “They were like, ‘Hey, we’ve got this great tight end who we think is going to be a superstar. He’s never played football before. He played basketball, but he’s going to be a great tight end. Trust us.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, right. Yeah, that happens all the time.’ ”
