Markus Golden Looks Set To Return To Big Apple

New York Giants free-agent linebacker Markus Golden has until July 22 to find a new team after the Giants put a May 5 tender on him, but there is no indication that any other team is interested in signing him for more than one year and $4.125 million. If another team wanted him for more, it's clear that Golden would've signed by now. SNY's Ralph Vacchiano gets the sense that the Giants feel pretty confident he'll play for them in 2020. The former second-rounder had a great year with the G-Men in 2019, racking up a career-high 72 tackles and recording 10 sacks. But Golden put up just 30 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in his final year in Arizona in 2018 and isn't a great bet to return to double-digit sacks for IDP gamers.

Giants, Leonard Williams Not Close To Long-Term Extension

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano doesn't think that the New York Giants and defensive tackle Leonard Williams will come to an agreement on a long-term contract extension before the July 15 deadline. Williams wants to be paid like a premier pass-rusher (around $18-20 million a year), and the Giants haven't wanted to pay him that amount. On top of it, uncertain salary cap figures in 2021 are making teams be even more careful with long-term deals. General manager Dave Gettleman is all in on Williams after trading for him, but not everyone in the organization might be. If he plays the 2020 season on the tag, it'll be worth $16.1 million. The 26-year-old had just half a sack in 15 games with the Giants and Jets last year and has 17.5 career sacks in his six seasons. Williams could be a late-bloomer, but fantasy owners can leave him to the waiver wire in IDP leagues.

Evan Engram Running Again Post-Foot Surgery

New York Giants tight end Evan Engram (foot) was seen running and cutting for the first time since his foot surgery in December. Engram posted a video of him working out on Instagram, and it looks like the fourth-year tight end will be ready to go when training camps open up after ending last season on Injured Reserve. Engram has battled injuries in his career, as he's played just 19 games the past two seasons, but he can be one of the most explosive tight ends in football when healthy. Engram averaged 8.5 targets per game last season, and the Giants didn't do much to address their pass-catchers this offseason. Engram is being drafted as the sixth tight end off the board, which feels right for his combination of upside and injury risk.

Saquon Barkley Predicted To Receive Massive Extension

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley may receive a record-setting deal sometime next summer, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. The third-year back regressed in 2019 after producing 1,307 rushing yards, 721 receiving yards, and 15 total touchdowns during his rookie campaign and also missed three games due to a high ankle sprain. With Christian McCaffrey recently receiving a record extension worth $64 million over four years, Barkley could be in line to surpass that mark as long as he can remain healthy and productive. He is expected to be the second overall pick in fantasy drafts heading into the 2020 campaign.

Daniel Jones Bulking Up

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is bulking up in preparation for his first full season as the Giants starter under center. Jones, who stands at 6-foot-5, weighed 220 pounds as a rookie, but he's now closer to 230 pounds after hitting the weights hard this offseason. The second-year signal-caller wanted to put on a little weight while also maintaining his agility on the field. "He really put some work in to make sure hes a professional athlete and hes taking care of his body. Hes doing all the right things," trainer Anthony Boone said. There were some ups and downs for the 23-year-old last year when he took over for Eli Manning, but he clearly showed promising upside in his rookie year and could take a big Year 2 leap in a loaded offense if he can cut back on his fumbling issues. Consistency will be key. Take Jones as a high-end QB2 with upside.
