The New York Giants and RB Saquon Barkley will "continue to negotiate" a long-term contract after placing the franchise tag on him, general manager Joe Schoen said on Wednesday, March 8.

Impending free-agent RB Saquon Barkley (Giants) received the franchise tag from the New York Giants, according to a source Tuesday, March 7. The value of the franchise tag is $10.1 million for the 2023 season.
Huddle Up: Barkley could still get a contract extension, and this move gives the Giants time to work on that with the deadline coming in July. He also won't hit free agency because of the tag being applied. Barkley is a strong RB1 moving forward.

New York Giants impending free-agent RB Saquon Barkley had a positive meeting with the Giants Monday, March 6, according to sources. The two sides hope to reach an agreement in the near future.
Huddle Up: It looks like the Giants will tag Daniel Jones, so they will have about a week to work on a contract with Barkley before he hits the free-agent market. Barkley will be a starter no matter where he plays in 2023 and will be a weekly starting option in all leagues.

New York Giants impending free-agent RB Saquon Barkley is not close to an agreement with the Giants at this point. He could receive the franchise tag if the team is able to sign impending free-agent QB Daniel Jones to a long-term contract.
Huddle Up: It looks like there is a chance that Barkley will hit the free-agent market, so fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next week or two. He will start no matter where he plays next season and will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants impending free-agent RB Saquon Barkley had contract talks with the Giants last week and is expected to have more conversations with the team next week, according to general manager Joe Schoen.
Huddle Up: It seems like Barkley probably will be with the Giants for at least one more season, but it is not known if the two sides will be able to agree on a multi-year deal. Barkley had a bounce back season in 2022 and should be a No. 1 running back in most fantasy leagues.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley is reportedly seeking a new contract in the same range as the four-year, $64 million deal that Christian McCaffrey signed with the Carolina Panthers in 2020.
Huddle Up: If recent history has taught us anything, it is that signing running backs to second contracts typically does not work out well for the team. McCaffrey and Barkley might be two examples of running backs who are special enough that the same logic does not apply to them. It seems unlikely Barkley will get the contract he is supposedly seeking, but it would not be a surprise at all if he ends up getting paid like a top-five back. The bigger question remains if that contract will come from the Giants or someone else.

New York Giants impending free-agent RB Saquon Barkley said he is not expecting to set the running back market this offseason with his next contract. He does not believe the Divisional Round playoff game was his last with the Giants.
Huddle Up: Barkley likely will remain with the Giants either with a new contract or the franchise tag. He had a bounce back season in 2022 and has returned as a valuable fantasy option in all leagues. He should be a No. 1 fantasy back in leagues next season.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed nine times for 61 yards and caught two passes for 21 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the playoffs.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley received a contract offer during the team's bye week but decided to turn it down. The deal was believed to be for three or four years and be worth $12 to $12.5 million per season.
Huddle Up: The Giants and Barkley will resume contract talks after the season, so the two sides will have a month to reach a deal. He likely will be a candidate for the franchise tag if he does not receive a new deal. Barkley had a fantastic regular season and will be a No. 1 running back next season.
