Saquon Barkley's agent denies report about trying to avoid Browns

Per Baskin, whose extensive feature profiling Barkley was published on The MMQB on Wednesday, Barkley's handlers at Roc Nation want the highly-touted running back going to NY with the second overall pick, not to Cleveland at No. 1.

As part of a profile in Sports Illustrated, SI's Ben Baskin wrote that Barkley's Roc Nation representatives don't want him in Cleveland and have gone as far as to "pull an Eli Manning" and tell the Browns to pass on him.

With all those options, McShay reported that what he has heard points to Barkley beginning his career in the Giants backfield.

Mayor Kline, an image-obsessed politician, will be played by Cary Elwes , who was a series regular on The Art of More . The news was revealed by Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos, who described the actors as "guest performers".


Barkley is seen as a generational running back in the mold of Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley. "They want him to go second to the Giants and play in the media capital of the world", the report read. Interestingly, the Browns did not invite Barkley to Berea for a pre-draft visit. "They don't want him in Cleveland", Baskin wrote.

Many mock drafts have Barkley going to the Giants with the second pick, but the Giants could end up trading the pick to Buffalo or another team looking for a quarterback, or the Giants could draft a quarterback. "If you spend 10 minutes with Saquon you understand that he's going to be the face of a franchise". However, Barkley shot down their suggestion of demanding the Browns not to draft him. For the last few weeks he has told close friends about a vision he has.

Miale, Barkley's agent, responded via Cleveland.com: "As Saquon's (agent), I can say on behalf of our entire team that we would be thrilled for Saquon to go to whichever team drafts him".

Whether or not the Browns go through with selecting Barkley, what's clear is that he won't be opposed to playing in Cleveland. "He believes that if he brings a championship to the Land, as LeBron did, he'll be hailed as the best athlete of his generation and have a statue built in his honor".

The report was probably true, and his agents are likely now back-tracking, but we may never know.

Barkley rushed for 1,271 yards and 18 touchdowns for Penn State this season.
