New York Giants star RB Saquon Barkley still hasn’t signed his franchise tender.

The team’s voluntary offseason program began on Monday, and there has been no update on the situation.

Therefore, when asked about Barkley’s future with the team, GM Joe Scion said that the media would have to ask Barkley if he intended to stay with them in the offseason, according to Ari Meirov.

The G-Men placed Barkley under the franchise tag, and they tried to sign him to a long-term deal for months, but to no avail.

Owners John Mara and Schoen have been vocal about their desire to keep him for the foreseeable future, but yet there has been little or no progress in talks, and fans are not happy.

If Barkley does not sign, he is not eligible to participate in their offseason program.

He will play under a one-year franchise tender. Provided he signs it if he doesn’t agree to a new deal by July 15.

That would make him a little over $10 million next season, down from reportedly $14 million in his new deal.

Barkley was one of the best running backs in the league when he first came out of Penn State, and he is coming off one of the best seasons of his career.

However, his history of injuries raised considerable concerns about his long-term outcome, which is why most analysts thought he would have to settle for a pay cut.

So, will he be a part of Brian Dabol’s offense in 2023?

Looks like even the team is not sure yet.
