New York Giants aren’t ready to shut the door on Daniel Jones

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll have been unwavering in their support of quarterback Daniel Jones.

Despite that, fans continue to insist that’s nothing but lip service and that the team will select Jones’ replacement in the 2024 NFL draft.

It’s best to pump those brakes.

Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz reports that while the Giants may select a quarterback in the early rounds — something that is far from guaranteed — the plan remains to start Jones in 2024 and potentially beyond.

“I can tell you that the Giants still believe in Daniel Jones,” Schultz said. “The Giants still believe, as does Brian Daboll, in Daniel Jones. And the players still do. There’s a lot of guys in that locker room that believe Daniel Jones is and should be the guy moving forward.”

Schultz suggests that Jones’ regression in 2023 has been viewed through a more fair lens inside the building than outside of it. Daboll and the Giants recognize that the offensive line was a failure and that injuries to skill position players piled up.

“The Giants are not ready to shut the door on him. There’s a lot still to be played out in terms of the Daniel Jones-Giants situation,” Schultz added. “What I’ve been told is that not only does the staff and Brian Daboll believe in Daniel Jones, but (Mike) Kafka and the players do as well.

“When you combine both of those things together . . . there’s a really good shot that Daniel Jones next season is the starting quarterback and that he does return to the type of success he had in 2022.”

The Giants are locked into Jones for at least one more season. If he doesn’t step up his game, it’s hard to imagine they continue carrying that bag regardless of how much they may believe in him.
