Giants GM is unlikely to fulfill Barkley's request.

After the regular season concluded, Saquon Barkley, the top running back for the New York Giants, expressed his desire for general manager Joe Schoen to "get it over with." 

If the team intended to keep Barkley's rights under the franchise tag for a second year in a row. 

In an interview with reporters on Tuesday at the Senior Bowl location, Schoen appeared unhurried to make the choice. 

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz reports that Schoen stated that he and Barkley had a "good conversation" on January 12. 

Regarding the 26-year-old who is scheduled to enter free agency in March, Schoen continued, "He was getting ready to go to Africa for a Super Bowl commercial." "The plan is to circle up with his representatives when we get to the combine." 

The combine is set to take place from February 27 through March 4, according to Dan Salomone of the Giants website. Teams have until March 5th to use their franchise tags. 

Since the Giants selected him with the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Barkley has solely played for them; nevertheless, he recently said in an interview that he can see himself "in another uniform." 

He ultimately accepted an amended one-year tag to ensure he could report to training camp on schedule, even though he was open about his dissatisfaction about not getting a long-term contract during the summer.
