When NY Giants running back Saquon Barkley took to social media to post some new workout photos, so many people were blown away. Barkley has clearly been on his grind this offseason, as he looked absolutely shredded in his Instagram post. Barkley is incredibly lean and he’s got abs that plenty of his teammates are no doubt jealous of.

On Instagram, current and former NFL players have been showing Barkley a ton of love. The long list includes former Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who just helped the Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl in February. OBJ of course isn’t forgotten by the New York faithful, with fans hyped up to see him show Barkley some love.

In the comments section of Barkley’s IG post, OBJ hit him with a, “Yeaaaa telll em keeep tht same energy!” NY supporters have replied to Beckham, calling for the superstar wideout to shock the world and return to the Giants before Week 1 arrives. That’s looking incredibly unlikely, as there’s been no signs of a reunion going down.

Regardless of that, it’s great to see Beckham show his former teammate some love. Beckham and Barkley weren’t together in East Rutherford for long, as the 2018 campaign was their lone season together. That was Barkley’s rookie year, where the former Penn State stud was nothing short of electric.

That fall, Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns, while adding 721 receiving yards and four more scores. That showing resulted in a trip to the Pro Bowl. Things have gone downhill for Barkley ever since, with a torn ACL and multiple ankle injuries having a negative impact on his game.

The 2021 season was one to forget for Barkley, but he’s got a bounce-back year written all over him. Barkley impressed during OTAs and minicamp. While there have been plenty of trade rumors going on, with Barkley linked to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, No. 26 isn’t listening to that outside noise.

Instead, he’s going to keep working around the clock to make sure his body is in its best shape leading up to the regular season. Barkley wants to remind people of just how good he can be with the ball in his hands. Regardless of where he plays next season, it looks like Beckham will be supporting Barkley from start to finish in 2022.
