Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Saquon Barkley updates
ESPN: Saquon Barkley, Giants Aren't 'Panicking'; RB's Contract Requests 'Reasonable' | Bleacher Report
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said of Barkley's contract situation on SportsCenter:
"There's no real movement on a contract yet but neither side is panicking because they have about a month until that July 17 training camp deadline. Barkley is due to make $10.1 million. He wants more security on a long-term deal. I'm told his asks have been pretty reasonable. He just wants a good structure and a guarantee. He doesn't want flimsy guarantees, and he wants something that will pay him out in the first couple of years as, you know, a well-accomplished back and Pro Bowl-type player. The Giants ownership really values Barkley. They see him as a potential Giant for life, so could step in to try to get something done closer to the deadline."
Fowler also said Barkley is a “real threat” to miss training camp.
Patricia Traina offers some suggestions on how the Giants and Barkley could reach a deal.

8. New York Giants
Key additions: RB Eric Gray, WR Parris Campbell, WR Jalin Hyatt, TE Darren Waller, C John Michael Schmitz, LB Bobby Okereke, CB Deonte Banks
The Giants did their best to remix their backfield and receiving corps to react to a potential contract stalemate with Saquon Barkley and add more reliable targets for Daniel Jones, topped by Waller. Schmitz rounds out a rising offensive line and the defense is well position to be improved. GM Joe Schoen did well to further support Brian Daboll.
