Giants RB Saquon Barkley confirmed Sunday that he won't attend the team's mandatory minicamp this week. That won't subject Barkley to any team discipline because he's not currently under contract. He has not signed his franchise tender. Barkley said: "I'm not demanding to be the highest-paid player at my position. I understand the market. I've been in talks with the Giants throughout the offseason. If at some point there's a deal that is fair to both sides on the table, I'll be ready to sign." There's no reason to believe at this stage that Barkley won't start the regular season on time. If you see him slide in best ball drafts on holdout fears, be ready to pounce. We'll see where the situation sits once training camp begins.
