RUMOR: New York Giants Could Target Superstar QB To Replace Daniel Jones

Without a doubt, 2024 is a make-or-break year for New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, whose career has been awfully underwhelming up to this point.

After putting together his best season in 2022, Daniel Jones was awarded a four-year contract extension worth $160 million. The first year of the new deal was a disaster, as Jones lost five of six starts and had two touchdowns vs. six interceptions before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in a game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The good news for the Giants is that Jones’ deal is structured where they can cut him loose next year with minimal financial ramifications. So it’s going to take a heckuva season from Jones to buy himself another year (or two) in the Meadowlands beyond 2024.

Maurice Moton of Bleacher Report listed five teams who should be “all in” on Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl quarterback Dak Prescott if he hits free agency next year. The 30-year-old is entering the final season of a $160 million extension he signed in 2021.

Moton made a compelling case for the Giants to replace Daniel Jones with the quarterback from an archrival team:

“If Jones struggles to move the ball through the air with rookie wideout Malik Nabers, who’s already turning heads at practice, the club must find a quarterback who can elevate the offense.

The Giants know what Dak Prescott can do on the field. He typically plays well against them, and the Dallas Cowboys have a 12-2 record against New York with him as a starter. Saquon Barkley left New York for a division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. Prescott can do the same, signing with Big Blue to stick it to the Cowboys.”

If Dak Prescott hits free agency, he’ll certainly receive a deal worth $200 million-plus, seeing how a 36-year-old Kirk Cousins got $180 million from the Atlanta Falcons while recovering from a season-ending Achilles tear.

Daniel Jones Has One Last Chance

The 27-year-old Jones has a 22-36-1 record with a 64.3 completion percentage, 12,512 passing yards and 62 touchdowns against 40 interceptions to go along with 1,914 rushing yards and 13 rushing scores.

New York drafted a can’t-miss wide receiver prospect in LSU product Malik Nabers with the No. 6 pick, giving Jones a true game-changing playmaker in the passing game. If Jones isn’t able to get back to his 2022-like form, the Giants will have an easy call to cut ties with him.
