Top 3 Landing Spots for Saquon Barkley in Free Agency


Saquon Barkley has been the focal point of the New York Giants' offense ever since he was selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Following their contract extension with Daniel Jones during the previous summer and Barkley's tag, it is quite probable that Barkley will be playing elsewhere this offseason. His career total of 5,211 yards and 35 touchdowns on 1,201 carries will make him a very desirable running back.


#3. Carolina Panthers

The Panthers' 2024 summer will be crucial for them in terms of surrounding Bryce Young with quality, since they demonstrated potential towards the end of the 2023 campaign. Even if they weren't the NFL's worst rushing club, Chuba Hubbard and Miles Sanders didn't exactly create a stir. A running back like Barkley would be a great addition and a positive step toward their future, relieving Young of some of the strain as he prepares for his second season. 


#2. Philadelphia Eagles

A squad that needs a running back and who is highly familiar with Barkley. Even if D'Andre Swift decides to return, the combination of Barkley and Swift, along with Jalen Hurts' own running prowess, would cause nightmares for opposing defenses. Barkley can also assist Swift in that way as a receiver, so Philadelphia may be able to use both of them simultaneously on the field and get creative.


#1. Chicago Bears

After concluding the previous season with a solid performance, the Bears should consider keeping Justin Fields at quarterback at least through 2024 to see what he can really achieve. Fields needs Chicago to do a better job of surrounding him with a supporting cast if he is to reach his full potential. First and foremost, Fields needs to improve his rushing skills at the running back position since Roschon Johnson and Khalil Herbert weren't good enough. While Barkley still manages his workload, the Bears now have a reliable three-down back, as Johnson did show some promise in his first campaign.
