Saquon Barkley Next Team Odds

TeamOdds Implied chance

Chicago is given +300 odds or an implied 25% chance to land Barkley if he hits free agency. Their toughest competition is expected to come from the Buffalo Bills who are given +400 odds, or an implied 20% chance.

The market in general is expected to be crowded. Eight teams are currently given better than a 10% chance to land Barkley on the open market. There’s no real rhyme or reason to the market either. It ranges from bad teams like the Bears, Denver Broncos +500, New England Patriots +700, and Carolina Panthers +850 to the best teams in the league like the Bills, Kansas City Chiefs +600, Baltimore Ravens +700, and Dallas Cowboys +850.

The only constant on the market is that these are the teams who demonstrated they can run the football last season. Five of the top-10 rushing teams are expected to pursue Barkley this offseason, and the Giants were fourth in rushing.

Saquon Barkley is one of the trickiest free agents in a while. An elite talent at a young age, the 26-year-old should be a coveted free agent. However, teams tend to avoid high-priced running backs. The last top-end running back to head to free agency was LeVeon Bell and that contract didn’t work out.

So teams will likely be wary. Still, a team looking to build out an elite running game likely won’t be able to pass on Barkley, and the Bears make perfect sense given their young quarterback.
