Let’s stop talking about the injuries, the cost, the potential. Let’s focus on one thing. On the field, Saquon Barkley is ELITE. His offensive line in New York stunk, but you could see the flashes of greatness when he touched the ball.
Miami has been dragging their feet at running back for far too long, and adding Barkley would change that narrative and change it quickly.
Barkley is a monster. He is 6-0, 233 pounds. 233 POUNDS!!!
The dude is built like a Greek god, but don’t let his massive build full you; this dude can fly. Barkley ran a 4.41 at the combine, at his confirmed 6-0, 233 pound build.
INSANE. Barkley can run between the tackles and get to the edge and create big plays.
Barkley is a legitimate every-down running back that doesn’t need to leave the field on 3rd downs. In his 44 career games, Barkley has caught 190 passes for 1,482 yards and eight scores.
He is a weapon out of the backfield, and McDaniel would have his new weapon to play with on offense.
Pairing Barkley with Waddle gives Miami two elite offensive playmakers that will be on the field for almost every snap in a game. That will put so much stress on a defense pre-snap, and it would be amazing to watch.
Being worried about his injury history is fair, but have some faith Barkley can stay healthy, and you will see that Miami has to trade for this DUDE!
