Saquon Barkley not only looks like one of the NFL's most dominant running backs again this season - he hasn't felt this good in a long time.
The New York Giants star, who put on a show as a freshman in 2018 but wasn't able to replicate that success in the following years, said Thursday the plays he's made through this season's first three games remind him of his best days in the NFL.
"Yeah, not to be arrogant but when you see plays like when I went back and watched film on the touchdown run I had on Monday, making that jump cut inside a hole, making those two guys miss and finding a way to score, those are plays where it just puts a smile on your face when you're like, 'That is the guy I know,'" Barkley said, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.
Barkley took the league by storm after the Giants drafted him second overall in 2018. He rushed for 1,307 yards and caught 721 that year, good for an NFL-high 2,028 scrimmage yards.
