Giants RB Saquon Barkley talks about impending free agency after awful season

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley spent last offseason in limbo over his contract before agreeing to a one-year deal with the team through 2023.
Now that the Giants’ season is coming to a close, Barkley’s future is once again being talked about.
During Wednesday’s media session, Barkley said he still wants to remain with the Giants, as he said last year, but said it’s up to general manager Joe Schon to make that decision.
“I’ve already said I want to be a Giant my whole life.
That was my goal when I got drafted.
I wanted to leave a legacy here, but that’s out of my control,” Barkley told SNY He spoke at “It doesn’t help or hurt anything for me to sit here and say I want to be a Giant for the rest of my life like I did last year.
It’s the people (in the front office)’s fault.

But one big difference between last offseason and this season is New York’s record.
Last year, the Giants had a successful season and made the playoffs, but this year they already have a losing record.
For a player like Barkley in his prime, New York’s difficult season may not be a selling point, and the running back acknowledged that most players will likely look elsewhere.
But Barkley said the free agency test is more about curiosity than anything else.
“For me, it’s not about seeing what the market brings,” he said.
“Did the idea of ​​a new beginning cross your mind?
The way the season went, it feels like everyone wants a fresh start with a clean slate, not somewhere else.
Barkley played in 13 games this year and had 1,145 yards from scrimmage and eight total touchdowns rushing and receiving.
His 84 rushing yards on Sunday was the fourth of his career.
