“I just want to be a versatile player and do whatever I can to help the team win. Whatever coach asks me to do, I’m going to go out there and try my best at it. Whatever I need to work on, continue to work on, and just evolve my game,” Barkley informed reporters as camp opened. “That’s one thing I wish to do, turn into an general higher participant, and I feel this offense is giving me the chance to try this, so, I’m grateful and blessed to have that. So, for me, I’ve simply obtained to make the most of it by getting within the facility taking further assembly time and studying the playbook.
“I just want to show the Giants that they guy that they drafted is still here. I can still go out there and make the plays and help my team be successful. That’s the only thing I am focused on. Take care of myself, take care of my body, take care of my mental, and try to be the best teammate I can be.”
So far, Barkley is doing precisely that. He’s been spectacular on the bottom, via the air and as a blocker. He appears fully wholesome and assured in himself, and that may imply solely good issues for the Giants.
