Giants GM Doesn’t Hold Back On Daniel Jones Decision

The New York Giants stirred up quite a buzz leading up to the NFL Draft, with speculation swirling around their quarterback situation. Numerous reports hinted that the Giants were ready to part ways with QB Daniel Jones.

Given his track record of inconsistent performances and injury woes, many found it plausible that the team might reconsider their commitment to him, especially after handing him a hefty contract.

However, General Manager Joe Schoen opted for the ‘safer’ approach during the draft. Rather than making a bold move to trade up or reaching for a quarterback, the Giants used their No. 6 pick to secure the best available player.

Recently, Schoen confirmed that Daniel Jones will retain his starting position come game day, with newcomer Drew Lock assuming the role of QB2, at least for the foreseeable future.

“Yeah, for me, I said it in January after the season. Our expectation was Daniel would be our starter and we brought Drew Lock to be his backup and Tommy is a backup, so that’s where we are and that’s how we’ll move forward this season. Daniel is still under contract for three more years. As it sits today, that’s where we are.”

With a lack of playmakers on offense, the New York Giants were in dire need of a cornerstone to build around. This made Malik Nabers a logical choice as their first-round pick.

While the prospect of Jones leading the team into the future may raise doubts, it appeared pragmatic to retain him for another season. This approach allows the team to explore alternative options once they can part ways with his contract, be it through free agency or the draft.

Furthermore, there remains a glimmer of hope that Daniel Jones could stage a comeback and deliver a respectable season akin to his early tenure under Brian Daboll’s leadership.
