Saquon Barkley is one strong dude.
The talented running back for the New York Giants is currently involved in a contract dispute with the team.
In an effort to showcase his abilities and demonstrate what the Giants may be missing out on, Barkley has been relatively absent from the team’s preparations for the upcoming 2023 season.
However, it is important to note that Barkley is still working hard and staying in shape.
In a video shared on Instagram, Barkley can be seen box squatting close to 600 pounds, a truly impressive feat. While the exact weight is not confirmed, it appears to be around 585 pounds assuming standard 45lb plates were used.

Although it cannot be confirmed if this video was intended as a message to the Giants, it certainly seems that way. The team is adamant about having Barkley play on the franchise tag, which would cost them approximately $10 million.
On the other hand, Barkley desires a larger contract and has expressed willingness to sit out the season if a deal is not reached by July 17.
This is the current state of affairs between Barkley and the Giants.
