Star running back Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants have agreed to terms on a 1-year deal worth up to $11 million, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The deal also includes a $2 million signing bonus, sources said.

NFL Network first reported the agreement.

Last week, Barkley said during an appearance on "The Money Matters" podcast he "might have to take it to this level" amid his stalemate with the team over a long-term contract, and had considered not playing this season.

The Giants and Barkley did not agree to a deal before the deadline for franchised players to agree to long-term deals, meaning he would have had to play this season under the $10.
