Throughout his three-year collegiate career, Barkley left an indelible mark on Penn State’s football program by setting numerous all-time records.

His remarkable achievements include holding the record for the most all-purpose career yards, amassing an impressive total of 5,538 yards.

Additionally, Barkley etched his name in the history books by scoring the most career rushing touchdowns with an astounding 43.

Not only did he excel as a running back, but he also showcased his versatility by setting the record for the most career receiving yards by a running back, accumulating an impressive 1,157 yards.

Net Worth & Contract

As of 2024, Saquon Barkley has a net worth of $15 million, contributed mainly by his football salaries and endorsement deals.

As the 2018 NFL Draft approached, Barkley garnered significant attention and was widely regarded as a top-10 prospect.

However, as the NFL Combine drew near, his draft stock skyrocketed even further.

By late February 2018, various mock drafts projected Barkley to be selected as high as the second overall pickā€”an honor not achieved by a running back since Reggie Bush in 2006.

The New York Giants eventually selected him with the second overall selection in the 2018 draft.

On July 22, 2018, he signed a 4 year, $31.19 million contract with the New York Giants, including a $20.76 million signing bonus, $31.19 million guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $7.79 million.

Extension Delay

Despite weeks of negotiation, Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants were unable to bridge a relatively small gap.

As a result, they could not reach a multiyear contract extension before the NFL-imposed 4 p.m. deadline for franchise-tagged players.

As a result, Barkley and the Giants will find themselves separated by a distance of 2,400 miles when training camp opens.

On Monday, the two parties broke their silence and exchanged offers but failed to come to an agreement.

According to sources, the Giants’ final three-year offer hovered around $11 million to $11.5 million per year, with guarantees ranging from $22 million to $23 million.

These figures were only a difference of $1 million to $2 million from Barkley’s reduced asking price.

In theory, the numbers were close enough to facilitate a compromise by incorporating incentives over the first two years.

However, both sides believed they had already made significant concessions and could not move any further. Independent agents echoed this sentiment, stating that a figure of $19.5 million was unacceptable.

Regrettably, talks for an extension cannot be resumed until after the conclusion of the 2023 season, leaving Barkley and the Giants in a state of temporary impasse.
