Saquon Barkley appears as Elite in 2022

The 25-year-old is expected to be one of the best – if not the best – rushers to enter the free agent market after the 2022 campaign. After two straight injury-hit seasons, Barkley has once again emerged as one of the league’s best players, He finished the season with 1,312 yards and 10 touchdowns to go along with 57 receptions for 338 yards. for him The number of receptions already ranked seventh in the league among all players in his position.

According to Pro Football FocusBarkley posted an 81.1 rushing score during the 2022 season, ranking 15th among all rushing linebackers with at least 200 tackles. The score surpassed Cowboys starting running back Ezekiel Elliott in 2022 (75.2).

There is no doubt that Barkley is on his way to getting a big contract in the off-season. Although the running back market is worth an order of magnitude lower than other major centers, the former #2 overall draft pick should emerge as one of the best running backs in the league.

According to SpottrackBarkley has a market value of $12.3 million per season over four years for a total of $49.2 million. This would make Barkley the sixth highest paid back-to-back in the league.


The Cowboys could lose a Tony Pollard or Ezekiel Elliott

The Cowboys are facing a potentially huge running back void. Tony Pollard coming off a broken fibula that was injured in Dallas’ playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Which means he will face a three-month recovery schedule. Moreover, he will be a free agent in the off-season.

As I mentioned NFL Network’s Ian RapoportCowboys could return Pollard to franchise tag, It is worth about $10.1 million.

“They don’t like losing good players,” said Rapoport. “They like to keep their good players. They want to keep Tony Pollard going into free agency. Don’t rule out using the franchise tag. It’s something the Cowboys will consider. It’ll be about $10 million. Put that together with your uniform, a lot of money in one location.”

Second, Dallas will have to restructure Elliott’s contract. The former Pro Bowl is slated to run Second highest paid rate in the league in 2023 With a ceiling of $16.7 million.

Elliot has already opened, indicating his desire to return to Dallas. The Cowboys also received more good news when Michael Gilkin from The Dallas Morning News She reports that Elliott is willing to take a pay cut to return to Dallas.

“The running back is willing to accept a cut wage this season, recognizing that the cut salary could better fit him into the franchise’s plans,” Gehlken said Monday, January. 23. “He is currently scheduled to earn a salary of $10.9 million in 2023.”

If the Cowboys are unable to bring Pollard or Elliott back, Barkley could emerge as an option.

Given Barkley’s background as a member of the Giants, that would be one heck of an offseason story.
