Giants Place RB Saquon Barkley On PUP List

The New York Giants have placed RB Saquon Barkley on the PUP list to open training camp, according to Field Yates

Saquon Barkley

Barkley tore his ACL in Week 2 last season and suffered additional damage to his knee, so it’s not surprising he will open camp on the list. 

Barkley will still count against the Giants’ 90-man roster and can be activated at any time. 

Barkley, 24, was the second-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s entering the fourth year of a four-year, $31.19 million rookie deal with the Giants that included a $20.767 million signing bonus.

The Giants picked up Barkley’s fifth-year option worth $7.22 million fully guaranteed for the 2022 season this past April. 

In 2020, Barkley was limited to two games with a knee injury, tallying 34 yards on 19 carries and no touchdowns. He also accrued 60 yards on six total catches.
