Saquon Barkley Yet to sign franchise tag

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-12 08:18:47

Barkley hasn't signed his franchise tender and won't be eligible to participate in the Giants' offseason workouts until he does so, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

New York applied the franchise tag to Barkley in early March, shortly after having signed Daniel Jones to his four-year extension, but Kim Jones of Newsdsay reports that the star running back isn't planning to sign his non-exclusive tender when offseason activities begin next week. Barkley's decision not sign is likely an attempt at gaining leverage while he works to negotiate a multi-year deal with the team. Barkley and the Giants have until July 17 to finalize a long-term contract, but if that deadline is missed, both sides will be unable to reopen negotiations until after the end of the 2023 season.
