4. New York Giants

Of course, there's always the possibility that Barkley stays with the Giants.

Although he's dead-set on earning a massive payday in free agency, there's always the chance that teams aren't willing to shell out big bucks for an RB with a lengthy injury history who's also turning 30 in a few years. If the market just isn't there, sticking with New York might be the best option.

Of course, there's the possibility that Barkley could even stick around against his own will. The Giants can still franchise tag him for $12.1 million and even though that's a situation Barkley wants to avoid, general manager Joe Schoen will do whatever he wants if he thinks it's for the betterment of the franchise.

There's also the chance that the two sides come to a mutual agreement to keep Barkley in town. He is one of the best RBs the Giants have drafted and is only 86 rushing yards away from passing Joe Morris for the third-most in franchise history. I know that plenty of New York fans would love to see him continue to ascend the rankings.

At the end of the day, both the Giants and Barkley will do what's best for their respective interest. Time will tell if that's a path that they travel down together or separately.
