The rivalry between the NY Giants and Eagles will always be a hated one, but there's one player for Philly plenty of people are always going to have some love for. You know we're talking about former No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley, who spent six seasons in East Rutherford.

Barkley inked with the Eagles in free agency, taking home $37.75 million over three years. This is something people remain furious about, but let's put that aside for now. With the Giants releasing their Top 100 players to honor their 100th year, Barkley checked in at No. 95 on the list. Despite his new colors, it's something that means a lot to the star RB:

Barkley has received a ton of hate from Giants fans all offseason, as a lot of folks still can't believe he decided to join the enemy. Yes, it sucks that he's now going to be with the Eagles and Nick Sirianni, but it doesn't take away from some of the incredible memories No. 26 provided us.

He was a two-time Pro Bowler with the Giants and helped power the team to the postseason in 2022. That fall and winter, Barkley posted a career-high 1,312 rushing yards. His two touchdowns in the Wild Card Round upset win over the Vikings was special to see too.

The speedster admitted that his goodbye to Giants fans before he signed with the Eagles was a bit weak and that he also appreciated his six campaigns with the squad. Barkley also meant a ton to the local community, which only made his exit from NY/NJ that much more difficult.

At the end of the day, it's going to take a while to get used to Barkley playing for Philly. A lot of people are always going to hate it, but again, we can't forget about what he did for the G-Men. His latest social media post shows that he's thankful for his time with the Giants - and we're thankful for what he was able to get done doo.
