EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Running back Saquon Barkley is hoping for a new long-term deal from the New York Giants but isn't insistent on topping Christian McCaffrey's $16 million per year salary.

Barkley, 25, just played out the fifth-year option in his rookie contract and set a career high 1,312 rushing yards while remaining healthy the entire season.

"I'm not really too concerned about resetting any [running back] markets or anything like that," he said Sunday, when the Giants cleaned out their lockers following a 38-7 loss the previous night to the Eagles.
