New York Giants News, 7/11 – Saqoun Barkley wins prestigious award

New York Giants, Saquon Barkley

Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

If 2,000 All-Purpose yards in his rookie season wasn’t enough, I don’t know what would have earned sensational running back Saquon Barkley to breakout player of the year for 2018.

Barkley, the Offensive Rookie of the Year for the NFL, won the prestigious award mentioned above at the ESPYs on Wednesday night. Securing the honor of Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young, Tennis player Naomi Osaka, and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, Barkley proved his worth once again.

Beyond his physical gifts, Saqoon’s class was on full display the award ceremony — check out the video of his speech below.

Becoming the third NFL rookie to amass over 2,000 yards from scrimmage, Barkley joined a group with legends Eric Dickerson and Edgerrin James. He’s primed to continue improving upon his success last season, especially with Giants GM Dave Gettleman appropriating even more resources towards the development of the offensive line.

With the departure of Odell Beckham Jr., I anticipate Barkley becoming an even more influential player on the offense. Head coach Pat Shurmur will surely utilize him early and often, which will subsequently force opposing defenses to stack the box and take players out of coverage. The wide receivers corps will also benefit from Saquon’s sheer dominance.
