The New York Giants are thrilled to have Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley in training camp.
Heading into the offseason there were questions about which one would get paid.
It seemed likely that one would get a long-term deal and the other would get the franchise tag.
The Giants gave Jones a massive four-year extension, while Barkley received the franchise tag.
It was expected that Barkely would hold out until the Giants extended him a one-year deal paying him more than the tag.
Both of their star offensive players are in camp and already on the same page.
According to the Giants’ Twitter page, Jones and Barkley connected for an impressive touchdown at the beginning of camp.

This is what the Giants are hoping to see all year long.
Barkley’s ability as a receiver is what makes him incredibly valuable.
He is the most explosive playmaker on their offense and someone that can change a game at a moment’s notice.
While there are few questions about Barkley’s game, many people are not sold on Jones, mostly because he has yet to have an impressive season as a passer.
In 16 games last season, Jones threw for 3,205 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The one spot where he improved was limiting his turnovers.
He only threw five interceptions and fumbled six times.
Yet, for what he is getting paid the Giants will need him to be more productive as a passer.
This is a massive season for Jones as he sets out to prove he can win games with his arm.NEXT: Analyst Roasts Giants For Financial Decisions In Defense Of Saquon Barkley
