New York Giants Ownership Makes Major Statement On The Future Of Daniel Jones In 2024 And Beyond, Believes He Is ‘The Real Deal’

The New York Giants failed to build on an impressive 10-7 first year at the helm for head coach, Brian Daboll, and general manager, Joe Schoen; going 6-11 and falling to 3rd in the NFC East behind only the lowly Washington Commanders, who have made overhaul changes this offseason.

 New York Giants Ownership Makes Major Statement On The Future Of Daniel Jones In 2024 And Beyond, Believes He Is 'The Real Deal'

Is Daniel Jones The New York Giants’ Franchise Quarterback?
Much of this decline centered upon the shoulders of Daniel Jones, who missed all but 6 games in 2023. However, in the 6 games he did play, Jones went 1-5, passing for 909 yards, 2 touchdowns and 6 interceptions, all for poor 70.5 quarterback rating, placing him 49th in the NFL last year (min. 50 attempted passes).

For context, struggling rookie, Bryce Young, and the unimpressive Desmond Ridder, Zach Wilson and Mac Jones all ranked significantly higher than Jones, who last offseason signed a 4 year, $160 million deal.

Many have pondered whether it would be prudent for the New York Giants to consider drafting a new quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft, where they hold the 6th overall pick – where one of the “top 4” quarterbacks; Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels and JJ McCarthy; could still be available for selection.

However, now it seems like perhaps New York may be inclined to move in a different direction, as principal owner, John Mara, gave a borderline ringing endorsement of Daniel Jones at this year’s annual league meeting.

Although Mara – like most other owners – may say that their general managers and head coaches have complete jurisdiction over the roster and football operations, in reality, even perceived “good” owners will take opportunities to stamp their authority on their team.

Especially when that opportunity concerns decisions made about the most important position.

John Mara did seemingly endorse using their first round selection on a quarterback; or at least not seem opposed to it; at comments made earlier during league meetings, but in calling Jones the “real deal” and someone the team can build around, it would certainly be a very strong deception if the Giants were to make an aggressive QB move early in the draft, especially when the team already has major holes at cornerback and wide receiver.

Will the New York Football Giants take a quarterback? I would argue no – at least until 2025, where the dead cap hit becomes more bearable. Could it happen in the first couple of rounds, conceivably? Absolutely.
