Giants’ don’t plan on giving up on Daniel Jones
As much as New York Giants’ fans want the team to move on from quarterback Daniel Jones and draft someone like Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence or Ohio State’s Justin Fields, it looks like that won’t happen.
Zack Rosenblatt of NJ Advance Media says the Giants are committed to Jones beyond this season and believe he’s the right guy to replace Eli Manning.
The Giants still believe Jones can fill the Eli Manning-sized hole as their franchise quarterback. There are eight games left to evaluate if he is that guy. After a roller coaster 21 games to start his career, the Giants are still committed to Jones as their quarterback beyond 2020, too.
Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields be damned.
“They love him. They’re pleased with Daniel there internally,” a league source familiar with the Giants thinking told NJ Advance Media, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “He’s not going anywhere.”
We’ll see how Jones looks during the final eight weeks of the season. Also, if the Giants decide to move on from general manager Dave Gettleman and bring in someone new, they might be able to convince owners John Mara and Steve Tisch to draft a quarterback to compete with Jones. The worst that can happen is that they end up with two really quarterbacks.
