Eli Manning thinks the New York Giants need to reward Daniel Jones and pay him
Did Daniel Jones do enough to earn a new contract? Well, New York Giants legend Eli Manning told ESPN, he feels Jones did in fact earn a new contract.
“I was proud of Daniel, the way he played, to learn another offense and pick it up,” Manning told ESPN. “Just the way he played in the fourth quarter of a number of games and leading the team back to victory, which was awesome; that’s what you want from your quarterback. To do it so quickly with the brand-new offense, the way they were able to compete, make it to the playoffs, win a playoff game, that is awesome.
“I hope he gets rewarded for that. I hope he is the quarterback for the Giants for a long time.”
Joe Schoen, the Giants’ general manager, sounds like he is interested in bringing back Jones.
“We’re happy Daniel is going to be here,” Schoen said. “We’re happy he’s going to be here. “Hopefully we can get something done with his representatives. That would be the goal to build a team around him where he could lead us to win a Super Bowl.”
Jones set a new career high this year in multiple categories. He had a great completion percentage, QB rating, passing yards, and rushing yards in 2022. He finished with 22 total touchdown and just five interceptions. Do you think he is worth it?
