NFL fans reacted to a significant report on the New York Giants’ plans with running back Saquon Barkley ahead of the upcoming trade deadline on Oct. 31. Barkley has been rumored as a potential player the Giants could trade before the deadline.
The 1-5 Giants appear to be sellers at the deadline. The Giants, who didn’t sign Barkley to a long-term contract this offseason, could trade the star running back to help in other more critical parts of an offense that will be held back for a few years from Daniel Jones’ contract extension.
It looks like it’ll be another fun offseason for the Giants accountants.
According to Dianna Russini with The Athletic, the Giants are looking to keep Barkley:
“New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley told reporters at his locker Friday, “Sitting here, everyone knows how I feel. Everyone knows I don’t want to get traded. I don’t think anyone in their right mind would want to get traded anywhere. It’s not an easy thing to do.
You have to move. I have a family. I would love to be here. But like I said, it’s not in my control. My focus is to be the leader I can be for this team and get this thing on the right track.”
He’ll probably get what he wants. I was told the Giants aren’t planning on moving him.”

If he wants to stay in New York and potentially win some big games he could go to the Buffalo bills.
