(AP Photo/John Munson) Giants Strike Deal with Jones; Barkley Gets Tag – The New York Giants have reached a long-term deal with quarterback  Daniel Jones and will use the franchise tag on running back Saquon Barkley, NFL Network reports. Per the report, Jones’ deal is worth $160 million over four years with the potential of $35 million more in incentives. The contract reportedly includes $82 million guaranteed over two years. It freed up the Giants to use the franchise tag on Barkley, whose negotiations with the team have yet to produce a long-term deal. Barkley would make $10.091 million next season if he plays on the franchise tag. He and the Giants are free to continue to negotiate a contract. He would have been eligible for free agency without the tag or a long-term deal. News of both transactions arrived at Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline for teams to apply franchise tags.
