Eagles sign explosive Barkley on 3yr deal

The Philadelphia Eagles are getting better, and making their divisional rivals worse, signing RB Saquon Barkley to a 3-yr $37.75-million deal with $26-million fully guaranteed.

It’s a move likely to anger Giants fans after Barkley had repeatedly stated his desire to be a Giant for life. However, Giants GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll clearly felt differently after failing to get an extension and choosing not to tag Barkley.

“In a perfect world, we don’t want to franchise Barkley again,” Schoen said at the combine. “But again, we’re going to have conversations, we’re going to talk through it, and I know he says he wants a fair deal. And I appreciate that. But we have to do what is best for the franchise long term and short term and take all those things into account.”

Giant loss is Eagles gain

While the Giants were playing a losing game, the Eagles and head coach Nick Sirianni have singed one of the NFL’s more dynamic rushers. Sirianni needs to have a great offseason after the Eagles end of season swoon sees him fighting to keep his job.

Barkley has 5,325 rushing yards at 4.4 per carry on his career with 37 rushing touchdowns. He will give the Eagles offence another dimension as a bruising back who can break any run and take it to the house.
