Running back Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants have agreed to terms on a 1-year contract worth up to $11 million, sources confirmed to ESPN.
The deal also includes a $2 million signing bonus, sources said.
NFL Network was the first to report on the deal.
Last week, Barkley said during an appearance on “The Money Matters” podcast that he “might have to take it to this level” amid his stalemate with the team on a long-term contract, and that he had considered not playing this season.
The Giants and Barkley failed to reach an agreement by the deadline for franchised players to accept long-term deals, meaning he would have had to play this season under the franchise’s $10.091 million offer.
Giants training camp begins Tuesday for veterans. Barkley is already in the building, a source told ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.
Barkley, 26, finished fourth in the NFL with a career-high 1,312 rushing yards last season, rushed for 10 touchdowns and tied for the team lead with 57 receptions. He has played in 60 career games over five seasons since he was the second overall draft pick in 2018, when he was named Offensive Rookie of the Year.
