Other Giant observations

Saquon Barkley Rumors: 'Some Level of Optimism' Giants, RB Will Agree to Contract | Bleacher Report

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler provided the following update on SportsCenter, which really doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know:

“I just checked in on this and I was told there’s no hard-and-fast update right now, but there is at least some level of optimism that these sides can come to an agreement at some point,” Fowler said Sunday on SportsCenter. “They’ve been talking throughout the offseason. Giants ownership values Barkley; he’s considered a centerpiece-type player for them. But Barkley wants a stronger contract structure, most likely stronger guarantees in how that contract is structured. So, Giants have to find a sweet spot there.

“This could go right up until that July 17 deadline. Keep in mind, when the Giants were deciding whether to franchise tag Daniel Jones or Saquon Barkley earlier this offseason, they took it up to like the final five minutes before getting a deal done with Jones at the deadline. Could be a similar situation.”

“Every day we wanted to make sure, hey, everyone has to earn their check. I think at whatever level you are on the roster.
