According to the NFL Network (H/T ESPN), Barkley has accepted a one-year contract worth $11 million that includes a $2 million signing bonus.
The deal is worth $10.1 million of fully guaranteed money, per Adam Schefter, while the RB has an opportunity to earn another $1 million by recording 1,300 rushing yards, 65 receptions, and 11 touchdowns.
However, it does not include a “no franchise tag” clause, so the Giants can tag him again at the end of the season should they desire.
Speaking on ‘The Money Matters’ podcast last week, Barkley hinted that he could sit out the entire season after failing to reach a deal with NY before the deadline for franchise-tagged players to agree to long-term contracts.
The Giants start their training camp for veterans this Tuesday. ESPN also reports that Barkley is already in the building.
