Daniel Jones's Message To The Giants
Daniel Jones, a quarterback, is seeking compensation after having his finest NFL season in 2022.
The New York Giants have made it plain that getting a long-term contract for Jones is a top concern for the team.
Mina Kimes, an NFL expert for ESPN, believes the Giants shouldn't do this just yet.
"The data you do have on this quarterback based solely on what [the Giants] have seen, isn't good enough for you to believe you can go toe-to-toe with the top-end offenses in the NFL,"
"Now that comes with context. It is entirely possible that next year if they get him a No.1 wide receiver and improve the offensive line, he takes another leap and tries pushing the ball downfield more which didn't really happen this season.
But why not wait and see if it does happen? You can franchise tag him, you have the leverage over him. I understand you're probably going to have to pay more money if he proves himself, but I think you'll be happy to do so if he does. And you'll have more information to work with."
Jones is reportedly looking for a deal north of $45 million per year, elite quarterback money, and switched agents to help get the money he seeks.
