Giants should get rid of Saquon Barkley, Daniel Jones

Tiki Barber wants the Giants to blow everything up.

The former Giants running back advocated a full rebuild on his WFAN radio show “Tiki & Tierney,” which includes throwing off running back Saquon Barkley and quarterback Daniel Jones.

“The reason I think they should try to trade Saquon is that if you go to zero to fix your cap, just do it,” Barber said. “Don’t try to ease the pain by keeping a popular player here. If you reset, it’s a new regime, a new philosophy… go all out. If you do this and it’s going to be painful, you just have to go all out.

“When [Jones is] I’m not going to be a top 10 quarterback, then why worry about figuring it out and trying to be a little bit above average quarterback? He’ll never be in the top 10, maybe he’s 15. Do you think he’s like Eli? [Manning] was? You trusted Eli because even if he was average, because when you got into a critical situation, he showed up. You could count on Eli for that. Can you trust that from Daniel Jones?”

Barber has seen enough of Jones and would welcome a painful makeover in new coach Brian Daboll’s first season.

“I don’t want to get caught with the same season of ‘Daniel Jones looks pretty good…he just needs something to tower over him,'” Barber said. “Then you’re stuck with no answer… I think this is a reset season for the Giants… if you take it off, take the pain now.”

It begs the question of what the Giants could do to improve on Jones. Would it be worth the price to potentially switch to Jimmy Garoppolo or Baker Mayfield? How big would the upgrades be anyway, and do they meet the criteria for being long-term top 10 quarterbacks?

Barber’s co-host Brandon Tierney agrees to get rid of Jones but wants Barkley on Daboll’s offense.

“I really think he should be with the Giants,” Tierney said of Barkley. “If they decide Daniel Jones is gone … then I can say, ‘Okay, it’s a complete reboot and there’s more reason to see if you can get a fourth-round pick for Saquon, will you loose the money.’ If you stick with Daniel Jones… I want to see what Daboll’s offense can look like with an electric runner that the Bills never really had… I’d like to get some answers from that vantage point. How important is an electric run back to Daboll?”
