The New York Giants may need to pay some huge cash to maintain quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason.
Jones is about to turn into a free agent after having one thing of a breakout season for the Giants, and there’s a rising expectation that the staff should pay massive cash to maintain him. Ralph Vacchiano of FOX Sports activities believes that the potential for Jones getting $40 million per season “may even be doubtless” contemplating the demand for quarterbacks and the contracts which have just lately been handed out.
The Giants may use the $32.5 million franchise tag to maintain Jones for another season, however the expectation is that the franchise would moderately signal him long-term.
The Giants made the choice final Might to show down Jones’ fifth-year choice, which might have saved him below contract in 2023 for a comparatively paltry $22.four million. Which may be one thing they remorse now, particularly if Jones desires to place some stress on the group throughout contract talks. He already did so to a level with his feedback on the finish of the season.
Jones, who turns 26 in Might, threw for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns and 5 interceptions in 2022 whereas quarterbacking the Giants to their first playoff look since 2016.
