Saquon Barkley is reportedly taking his talents down the New Jersey Turnpike and across the Delaware River.

The former New York Giants running back agreed to a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, according to multiple reports. His deal is reportedly worth $37.75 million and could be worth up to $46.76 million with incentives and $26 million guaranteed at signing.

Barkley all but confirmed the deal with a few eagle emojis on X. He cannot officially announce the deal until Wednesday, when the new league year begins. He did send a goodbye post to Giants fans.

“Thank you to everyone who has shown me love and support over the past 6 years… forever grateful! Excited for the next chapter,” he wrote.

The Giants selected Barkley with the No. 2 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He quickly became one of the top-tier talents from the class as he rushed for 1,307 yards with 11 scores on his way to winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

He had another 1,000-yard rushing season in his second year despite only playing in 13 games.

Injuries began to take a toll on him over the next four seasons. He only played in two games in 2020 and returned to play in 13 games in 2021. He also only played in 14 games in 2023.

Barkley was given the franchise tag in the 2023 offseason as the Giants elected to give Daniel Jones a lucrative contract extension. He eventually signed the franchise tender despite looking for a long-team deal as well.

In 2023, he rushed for 962 yards and six touchdowns. Despite wanting to be a Giant for life, the two sides never agreed on an extension.
