The Giants want to continue with Daniel Jones

Big Blue has made its choice.

When the season officially ends, Daniel Jones will be a free agent. But according to ESPN, with his career-best campaign in 2022, the Giants will try to retain the quarterback. The announcement was made by general manager Joe Schoen at the conclusion of his end-of-season conference on Monday. New York is considering negotiations for a long-term deal, but also has the franchise tag if talks don’t pan out.

“We would like Daniel to stay here. He said it (Sunday), there is a business side to that. But I think Daniel has played well this season. He did everything we asked of him… We would like Daniel Jones back,” Schoen said.

“We are delighted to have Daniel back. We hope to reach an agreement with its representatives. Our goal will be to build our roster around him so he can lead us to a Super Bowl victory. »

The club therefore changed their mindset regarding their colt, as he had refused to exercise his option on a fifth year of contract, forcing Jones to a decisive year under the new Joe Schen / Brian Daboll regime. His results were convincing, since the quarterback was able to lead his team in the post-season and win a playoff game. In the regular season he had 3,205 passing yards and 15 touchdowns for 5 interceptions, as well as 708 yards and 7 rushing touchdowns.

The deadline for applying a franchise tag is extended to March 7, and the amount expected for quarterbacks rises to $31.7 million.

“I really enjoyed my time here, and I want to stay,” Jones told ESPN. ” […] I have love and respect for this organization, for the owners, and for the guys in the locker room. So I would love to stay. I loved my time here, and we’ll see how it goes. »
