Saquon Barkley is pretty good, huh? The dynamic New York Giants running back put his best feet forward in this training camp touchdown.
Saquon Barkley is an absolute stud. Whether he’s taking handoffs in the backfield or walking a tightrope along the sideline, he’s a human highlight reel. The New York Giants know he’s the straw that stirs the drink.

Sure, this is only training camp. We all know that. However, it’s hard to blame any Giants fans who are itching to see Barkley suit up in a real game. The do-it-all back didn’t play in the team’s preseason opener against the New York Jets.
This video is just a friendly reminder that Barkley can do it all. The Penn State product led the NFL in yards from scrimmage in 2018 with 2,028 yards. He added 11 rushing and four receiving touchdowns for good measure.
His ridiculous numbers were enough to help Barkley win the 2018 AP Offensive Player of the Year. During a disappointing 4-12 season for the Giants, Barkley was one of the lone bright spots on the team.
The Giants will go as far as Barkley takes them in his sophomore season. It’s still unclear how much Eli Manning has left in the tank, but his job is made easier with a dynamic playmaker like Barkley.
Looking past 2019, Barkley will take handoffs from Daniel Jones. The No. 6 overall pick dealt with tons of criticism after he was drafted, but he showed out in his first-ever appearance in a Giants uniform. He was 5-for-5 for 67 yards and a beautiful touchdown on his only drive of the game.
