Daniel Jones has been improving over the past two years
It’s easy to look at the first two seasons of New York Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones’ NFL career and think that he’s not going to become a franchise quarterback. But in all fairness he has been improving, just not as quickly as some would hope.
One person in particular that knows a thing or two about drafting and signing players is former New York Jets’ general manager Mike Tannenbaum who told Big Blue View that he thinks Jones is ahead of Jets’ starting Sam Darnold in his development.
“I think [Jones’] ceiling has shown to be higher than Sam’s. They both have the same problem with turnovers and questionable decision-making, but his athleticism shows up,” Tannenbaum said.
“[Jones is] a great athlete and that shows up, that translates. You see a lot of good things and if you believe in the axiom that the tape sets the floor and the character sets the ceiling, boy you want to bet on this guy.”
Jones’ biggest problem has been turning the football over, but he did a great job of limiting his turnovers during the second part of the 2020 season. If he doesn’t keep improving in 2021, the Giants will likely start looking for his replacement.
