While he isn't a die-hard baseball fan

Youth Carl Banks Jerseys , Saquon Barkley is thinking about getting some more New York Yankees apparel.They were always his team growing up, and the bond got a little tighter for the 22-year-old Barkley over the past 24 hours when four Yankees donned his No. 26 jersey a day before the baseball team conducted a fantasy NFL draft.It happened Wednesday night before the Yankees headed to Boston for a weekend series. After their game with Texas, Domingo Germán, Gleyber Torres, Gio Urshela and Cory Gearrin donned Barkley's jersey to show their favorite NFL player."It's awesome just to see the New York love," Barkley said Thursday, three days before the season opener in Dallas against the Cowboys. "Even though we all play different sports we have the same appreciation for each other. Even though I am not a crazy baseball fan growing up, I have always been a Yankees fan. Everybody's been a Yankees fan and has to be, especially if you are from the New York-Pennsylvania area, where I am from."It's not surprising people support Barkley. He was the NFL offensive rookie of the year last season, rushing for 1 Carl Banks Jerseys Stitched ,307 yards and 11 touchdowns and catching 91 passes for 721 yards and four TDs. He finished with a league-best 2,028 yards from scrimmage.Those are super fantasy numbers.With a seemingly better offensive line following the addition of Kevin Zeitler at right guard and Mike Remmers at right tackle, the expectations for Barkley are over the moon.Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys should be interesting because it pits the top two NFL rushers in 2018, Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys and Barkley, the No. 2 pick overall in last year's draft.Elliott won the rushing title with 1,434 yards, sitting out the final game of the season. He finished 27 yards behind Barkley in the race for most yards from scrimmage, so he probably would have won that had he played.Barkley is happy Elliott ended his holdout this week and got a new $90 million contract. But it's not going to motivate him. He said being held out of the preseason to keep him fresh, has his juices flowing.Barkley believes he is the best running back in the league and he would not be surprised if either Elliott or Todd Gurley of the Rams felt the same way."That's how it should be," Barkley said. "We're some of the top running backs at the top of the game, and we're very confident. You want to play at a high level Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , and you look at any sport, people who play at a high level, they have a lot of confidence in themselves. I have a lot of confidence in myself, he has a lot of confidence in himself, and he felt like he's the best, and he felt like he should've gotten paid the best, and he did get paid. So, congratulations to him and like I said, just happy to see him on the field and can't wait to go against those guys on Sunday."In two games against the Cowboys last season, Barkley rushed for a season-low 28 yards in the second game of the season and 109 in the season finale. He also caught 18 passes, including a team-record 14 in the September contest. He scored once.Quarterback Eli Manning expects Barkley to improve."He's a guy Daniel Jones New York Giants Jersey , I think we'll just have a smarter player, knowing the reads, the runs, get him involved in the pass game, just doing everything a little bit smoother," Manning said. "He works extremely hard, so I think he'll be primed to go out there."NOTES: Remmers, who missed practice on Wednesday with an illness/back problem, returned on limited basis Thursday. Coach Pat Shurmur expects him to play but either Chad Slade or Nick Gates would be ready to fill in. ... Defensive coordinator James Bettcher would not say whether rookie DeAndre Baker or Antonio Hamilton would start opposite Janoris Jenkins at cornerback. Both have missed time in camp so they might split time. ... Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey says S Jabrill Peppers probably will return punts, while Cody Latimer and Corey Ballentine handle kickoffs. ... TE Garrett Dickerson (quad) and WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) sat out second straight day. ... Rookie DB Julian Love switched from No. 37 to 24 after the preseason. "I wasn't feeling 37," the fourth-round draft choice said. ESPN analyst tells us on Adam Schefter podcast"When the New York Giants hired Dave Gettleman as general manager Youth Phil McConkey Jerseys , the only other person who received an interview was ESPN analyst Louis Riddick. Two offseasons later, you may wonder how things would be different for the Giants had they hired Riddick rather than the more familiar Gettleman.Adam Schefter put that question to Riddick directly this week when Riddick joined Schefter’s podcast. It is fair to question Riddick’s objectivity when he is asked about the Giants, but this turned into a fascinating discussion both of how things might be different for the Giants with Riddick in charge and what goes into making the types of decisions the Giants have made the past two offseasons.A quick summary:Yes, he would have drafted Saquon Barkley at No. 2 a year ago. He said he knew Giants’ ownership wanted Barkley and “I understood it and I wouldn’t have had a problem with it.”He said he “could have lived” with Eli Manning at quarterback for a year.Riddick said he “understood philosophically what they were trying to do” with those decisions.Riddick indicated he likely would not have hired Pat Shurmur as head coach. He said “everybody knows” what coaches he would like to work with. Read — Josh McDaniels.He would have signed Odell Beckham Jr. to the long-term extension the Giants gave him, but would have “made sure we had that relationship” to ensure Beckham would stay with the Giants. He said flat out that “no, I wouldn’t have” traded Beckham.My aside here, quickly, is that I do believe the Giants tried to build that relationship with Beckham. It just didn’t work.Riddick “absolutely” would have wanted to keep Landon Collins.Now for the 2019 draft.Riddick said he would have “made it a priority” to get a quarterback in this draft. He just would have selected a different one.“As far as quarterback is concerned, yeah I would have made it a priority to try and draft a quarterback. I just wouldn’t have drafted this one [Jones],” Riddick said. “Everybody knows how I feel about Dwayne Haskins. Been around him. Was at his Pro Day. Watched all his tape. Know his coaches. Know what kinds of things they asked him to do up there at Ohio State.“He was coached by a guy, I think Ryan Day is brilliant. So I would have went that route with it.”Schefter and Jones also talked about Gettleman’s hotly-disputed claim that he “knew” there were two teams that would have grabbed Jones before the Giants selected again at No. 17.“One of the primary jobs on draft day of the decision maker is to read the market and to know the market and to try to figure out where does the value really lie. What price should I pay for this player in terms of what pick should I select him? Phil McConkey Jerseys Stitched ,” Riddick said. “Sometimes you don’t have the greatest intel. Sometimes you think you know because your scouts are out there on the road and they talk to their buddies, and a lot of scouts just can’t help themselves, man, they just can’t stop talking.“Next thing you know somebody jumps you for a player.”Riddick continued with this:“Maybe Dave just didn’t have a real good feel for whether Daniel would be there or not. Maybe ultimately he didn’t care. Maybe Dave felt in the end I’m gonna be right and this guy’s gonna be worthy of the sixth pick overall.”Gettleman is, of course, under fire for the decision. Much of that self-inflicted because of his awkward efforts to explain why he did what he did.Riddick’s advice?“He’s just gonna have to keep his head down and hope that this team continues to develop the way he envisions it developing. For him his work is done,” Riddick said.“Really the most important part is what is Pat Shurmur gonna do with this now?”
