Good morning, Sports fans!   Davey Mac back with another Sports Report for ya and we’ve got an action-packed edition for ya complete with scores and news!   But first!   We’ve got a breaking story out of the NFL!

According to Ian Rapport of the NFL Network, the New York Giants and superstar running back Saquon Barkley have agreed to terms on a new one-year deal worth up to $11 million.

Saquon will get a $2 million signing bonus and now will be in camp.   This is huge for the Giants.  Saquon was fourth in the NFL with 1,312 rushing yards this past season…while running for 10 touchdowns…and he was also tied for the team lead with 57 receptions!   Amazing!

This is a good job by the Giants general manager Joe Schoen.   Schoen now was able to re-sign the team’s free agent quarterback and superstar running back in the same offseason so that the team will be at full strength for 2023-24.   Well done.

And you know Giants head coach Brian Daboll is smiling somewhere.   Daboll loves utilizing Saquon as a dual-threat…giving him a chance with the ball in the ground and in the air…which is why Saquon is the most dangerous offensive player on the team.

And let’s not forget about how happy Giants QB Daniel Jones must be right now.   Jones is far more productive with Saquon in the G-Men backfield.   Without Saquon, Jones and the Giants offense has struggled.

So congrats, Saquon…and Giants fans for that matter!   Number 26 is back!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!

  • Knicks Add Former Cav

    The Knicks are adding free agent Dylan Windler, signing the injury-plagued 26-year-old wing to a two-way contract. The 6-foot-6 Windler was a first-round pick by Cleveland in 2019, but after playing 50 games for the Cavaliers two years ago, he made just three appearances last season, plagued by ankle and hamstring woes.
