Giants QB Daniel Jones deserves a long-term deal

New York Giants Legend Eli Manning was impressed with what he saw from the quarterback daniel jones he hopes to get his successor to sign a long-term deal this season.

Manning believes Jones won by having his best professional season in the first year of coach Brian Daboll’s offense.

Jones will be a free agent at the end of this season after being the sixth overall pick in 2019. He had a winning record (9-6-1) for the first time in his career, leading the Giants to the preseason for the first time. time since 2016 and ranked seventh in the NFL in QBR (60.7).

“I was proud of Daniel, the way he played, to learn and pick up another offense,” Manning told ESPN. “The way he played in the fourth quarter in multiple games and getting the team back to winning ways, that’s what you want from your quarterback. To do it that fast with the new offense, like they did. They were able to compete, get into the playoffs, win a playoff game, that’s awesome.

“I hope he gets rewarded for that. I hope he’s a Giants quarterback for a long time.”

Manning made the comments about his former teammate while promoting the Quaker “Pregrain” Challenge before the Super Bowl. This allows fans to submit a “pregrain” TikTok video to Quaker for a chance to win tickets to next year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

Manning also hopes to see the Giants and Jones next year. New York recently said Jones plans to return in the offseason. He could be re-signed, or the team could use the franchise tag.

For teams that have been told the salary cap will be $224.8 million next season, the exclusive franchise tag for a quarterback is $32.416 million, according to an NFL source.

General manager Joe Schoen slipped up last week and assured that the franchise will bring Jones back in some form.

“We’re excited that Daniel will be here,” Schoen said. “We are happy that he will be here. “Hopefully, we will be able to do something with his representatives. That would be building a team around him where he can lead us to a Super Bowl.”

Jones has also expressed his desire to remain with the team that undrafted him out of Duke in 2019.

“I really liked my time here, and I want to stay here,” he said last week. “I think there’s a business side to everything, and a lot of that I can’t control. I have love and respect for this organization and ownership and the guys in this locker room.

“So I’d love to be here. I really enjoyed being here, and we’ll see how it goes.”

Jones and the Giants lost to the NFC’s Super Bowl representative Philadelphia Eagles, in the qualifying phase of the eliminations. That 38-7 loss confirmed to Schoen that a significant gap remains between their division rivals. But he wants to go ahead with Jones and some reinforcements.

Meanwhile, they will watch the Eagles try to capture their second Super Bowl in five years. Manning, who attended that divisional loss to Philadelphia with his oldest daughter, appreciates what the Eagles did. But that doesn’t mean he’ll root for them.

“It’s tough. It’s tough in the sense that I usually root for the NFC in most Super Bowls that we’re not in. It’s hard to root for the Eagles,” he said. “There’s so many kinds of hate these years. Not hate, just competition against them.

“I think [Eagles fans] get. I like it It hurts to eat. I root for Jalen Hurts. AJ Brown He’s an Ole Miss guy. They’ve got a good team, and you appreciate them and what they’re doing. It would be difficult for them to pull and do the whole thing.”
