The Philadelphia Eagles already made some notable free-agency moves on Monday, but their latest is the biggest and possibly the most surprising one yet.

Per reports from NFL Network, the Eagles are signing New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Barkley is signing a three-year, $37.75 million contract that includes $26 million at signing.

"Former Giants RB Saquon Barkley reached agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles on a three-year, $37.75 million contract that could be worth up to $46.75M and includes $26M fully guaranteed at signing, per sources," Schefter tweeted.

Barkley's new average annual salary of $15.833 million per year will be the second-highest for a running back in NFL history.

Barkley, 27, is a native of Coplay, PA. He stayed in-state and spent three years at Penn State before being the No. 2 overall pick by the Giants in the 2018 draft.

In six seasons with New York, Barkley played in 74 games while posting 1,201 carries for 5,211 yards and 35 touchdowns. He also tallied 288 catches for 2,100 yards and 12 touchdowns.

After Philly's 2023 leading rusher D'Andre Swift bolted for the Chicago Bears on Monday, the Eagles quickly picked up their new RB1.
