The New York Giants will be hoping to bring back both quarterback Daniel Jones and star running back Saquon Barkley in 2023, but the team knows it won’t be easy to retain both players.

Giants owner John Mary has been heavily involved in the day-to-day activity of the team and understands the unique value that a player like Barkley brings to the team, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. Barkley and his team, especially his business manager, are also close with co-owner Steve Tisch.

“I’m certainly conscious of [Barkley’s star power], but I don’t think it’s a major factor in personnel decisions,” Mara told ESPN last year after Barkley was being publicly considered as a trade target. “At the end of the day, put the best possible team on the field and build for the future…Listen, I like him. He’s been a great representative for us.”

Tiki Barber, the former Giants running back who was one of the team’s most recognizable players in the 2000s, believes that the former No. 2 overall pick needs to utilize his star power in contract negotiations this offseason.
