Before the season, Giants co-owner John Mara talked about a long-term relationship with Saquon Barkley. But after suffering what could be another debilitating injury (ankle) the Giants must just cut bait o him and entertain a trade.
That of course, will depend on whether Barkley is healthy enough in two weeks to be deemed tradable.
In his four seasons, Barkley has not moved the needle for the Giants. They are still a losing team with no direction. Barkley is signed through 2022.
Barkley’s fifth-year option was exercised for $7.217 million earlier this year. That could be a detriment in trading him. The Giants may have to absorb some of that expense.
