Just how tied are the New York Giants to QB Daniel...


New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones played well as a rookie, taking over for Eli Manning early in the year and then wading his way through the NFL waters to a 3,027-yard, 24-touchdown end to the season.

Of course, Jones did have some hiccups along the way, most notably when it came to ball security — an area of his game that is receiving quite a bit of attention this offseason.

Now entering just the second year of his rookie deal, Jones appears to be a long-term commitment for the Giants, and why wouldn’t he be?

But just how married are the Giants and Jones? ESPN recently asked that very question and had the Giants-Jones union ranked in the top half of the league, but perhaps not as high as you might have expected.

13. New York Giants

Starter: Daniel Jones | Signed through: 2022
Tier: Youngster on rookie deal | Ranking in tier: No. 2

Contract: Four-year, $25.6 million fully guaranteed contract signed in July 2019. It includes a team option for a fifth year in 2023.

Jones opens his second NFL season as the Giants’ starter after a promising rookie year. He has a new coaching staff, and the general manager who drafted him isn’t on the league’s coolest seat. But the Giants used the No. 6 pick in the 2019 draft on him, and he’d have to play poorly for an extended period of time in order for them to consider giving up. He has about $4 million in guaranteed salary due in 2022 alone.

From a contractual standpoint, the Giants are married to Jones for the foreseeable future. His dead cap number drops to just over $8 million in 2022 and then the team has a fifth-year option to decide on.

Both financially and from an investment standpoint, the Giants are hitched to Jones’ wagon long-term. The good news? Jones has all the making of a top-end quarterback in the NFL who is capable of winning championships.
