NFL: Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley stay in New York | Video

The New York Giants have reached a four-year, $160 million deal to keep quarterback Daniel Jones in the Big Apple while applying the non-exclusive franchise brand to star running back Saquon Barkley.

Negotiations on the “Big Blue” came just minutes before the deadline to apply the franchise tag to one player from each team, so the Jones deal allowed Barkley to take advantage.

Jones’ deal is one that makes him the ninth quarterback to surpass $40 million in the NFL.

After the season I said I love this place. I enjoyed my time here and I want to be here. I have a lot of respect for this organization, the Maras (family that owns the team), the Tischs (team president), my coaches and teammates. I’m glad I came to an agreement.

For his part, Barkley’s deal will keep him with the Giants until 2023, as the non-exclusive franchise brand indicates that the hurler can still sign with another team if he receives an offer, in exchange for two starts. Guess picks, rounds, and as long as New York isn’t ready to keep up.

Both Jones and Barkley were instrumental in returning the Giants to the postseason for the first time in 11 years, most recently their victory in Super Bowl XLVI while still under the retiring Eli Manning.

The two main priorities for the New Yorkers going into the off-season were keeping the quarterback first and keeping Barkley second, points they at least earned in the 2023-24 season where they will have a solid season until the playoffs repeat.
