New York Giants Reportedly Have Steep Asking Price for Saquon Barkley

Rumor has it Saquon Barkley might be leaving the New York Giants, and some feel that he needs to get out of New York.

But the Giants’ asking price is reportedly steep.

Insider Jordan Schultz said that sources from two teams who called to ask New York about the 25-year-old running back and former Penn State Nittany Lion feel that the price is high.

“I don’t get the sense they actually want to trade him,” one assistant GM is said to have told Schultz. “To me, this is just posturing, but (Giants general manager Joe Schoen) would want a (first-round draft pick.)

Schoen got people talking Tuesday when he said that the Giants were “open to anything.”

“Whether it’s trading player for player, I’ll listen to anybody,” Schoen said. “I’m not going to say we’re open for business on our entire roster. But if anybody is going to call and they’re interested in any of our players, I’m certainly interested.”

2021 was Barkley’s final year on his four-year rookie contract, and the Giants picked up his fifth-year option. That option will cost the Giants $7.22 million fully guaranteed for 2022. He becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
