Over the past year, we've seen some pretty terrible trade rumors emerge when it comes to star running back Saquon Barkley. While the NY Giants superstar has battled multiple injuries this year, no one can question how much of an impact he makes for this offense.
Recently, Barkley revealed that both Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen told him that he won't be traded. However, before that news dropped, Fox's Nick Wright had people talking about an NFC East team trying to lure Barkley to town. Saquon to the Cowboys? Yeah, Nick, not in this lifetime:
A Saquon Barkley trade to the Dallas Cowboys is never going to happen
As you can see in that clip above, Wright had Barkley, Kyle Dugger and Hunter Renfrow in mind as possible trade targets for Jerry Jones and America's Team. With Barkley, Wright and his co-hosts felt like he'd be a big-bodied back to complement Tony Pollard.
Sure, in a fantasy world, those two running backs playing together would make the Cowboys offense downright sensational. Barkley would also take a lot of pressure off of quarterback Dak Prescott, who can't seem to step up for his team whenever they need him to.
One major problem for Wright's idea, however, is that there's just no way Schoen would ever consider this. People would be ready to kick down the doors to his office if he even thought about sending No. 26 to the Cowboys. What's next, a trade rumor coming in on Barkley being sent to Philly too?
In the Week 7 victory over the Commanders, Barkley rushed for 77 yards, while adding three receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown through the air. Barkley is a beast with the ball in his hands. Despite his late fumble vs. Washington, the G-Men wouldn't have come out on top if Barkley wasn't on the field.
Despite the horrendous start to the campaign, the Giants are only 1.5 games back of a Wild Card spot. They have back-to-back winnable contests coming up against the Jets and Raiders, respectively. Barkley will keep on turning heads for the Cowboys. If Wright wants to see Saquon ball out at AT&T Stadium, he can watch him do so for the Giants on Nov. 12 vs. Dallas.
