Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Saquon Barkley is doing something inhuman.
We shouldn’t be that surprised that the former No. 2 draft pick is still making ridiculous plays, but his talent and athleticism never ceases to amaze. He seems to get better each and every day.
Fall camp is no exception. While Barkley has proven to be a solid all-purpose player in the NFL, he’s still perfecting his skills as a pass catcher. Well, what little room there is for improvement, I guess.
Sunday, the New York Giants posted a video of Barkley making an awesome catch in traffic and appeared to be headed for the turf. But the ex-Penn Stater caught his balance, tiptoed the sideline, eluded the defender and raced to the end zone.
Just insane stuff.
Below is the video the Giants posted:

Barkley is coming off a rookie campaign in which he rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 91 passes for 721 yards and four touchdowns. He truly lived up to the No. 2 selection.
The second-year running back could be in for an even bigger year this fall. If his camp highlights are any indication, he’s going to have a really special season in New York.
