Getting another shot in New York
Giants team president John Mara said Wednesday that he maintains faith in Jones (neck) and views him as New York's starting quarterback heading into 2022, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "We've done everything possible to screw this kid up since he's been here," Mara said. "We certainly have not given up on Daniel Jones."
That said, Jones may be looking at a make-or-break season in Year 4, even if the Giants end up exercising his fifth-year option for 2023 before the May 2 deadline. He'll have to adjust to a new coaching staff once again, but Jones should at least be healthy for the start of the offseason program, considering he's been lifting, running and throwing since at least Jan. 10 after missing the end of the season with a neck injury. Also working in his favor is a talented group of skill position players, though all of the key pass catchers are coming off injury-plagued seasons, and the offensive line remains a question. Mara ruled out the possibility of trading for Deshaun Watson and said the Giants need to give Jones more help before making an "intelligent evaluation" on his future, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.
