Giants, Joe Schoen don’t care what you think about Jones contract

“We can’t worry about what people are saying outside the building. All we care about is inside these walls,” Schoen said on Wednesday. “And we’ve got a very talented, experienced coaching staff and a very talented personnel staff, I believe. And what matters is what we think inside this building. That’s how we’re always going to make decisions. We’re not going to worry about the outside noise. And we’re going to be convicted in what we’re doing. It’s a well thought out process, and we’re happy with the decision that we made. And we’re happy to move forward with Daniel.”

The Post’s Paul Schwartz

None of the $47.5 million in Jones’ contract for 2026 — $46 million in base salary, $1 million in a roster bonus and $500,000 in a workout bonus — is guaranteed. That means the real deal for Jones is three years and $112.5 million. That is an average of $37.5 million — more in line with what many believed Jones’ true value sits.

The Giants' free agents include safety Julian Love; wide receivers Richie James, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard; offensive linemen Jon Feliciano and Nick Gates; linebacker Jihad Ward; punter Jamie Gillan; and long snapper Casey Kreiter.

"We're going to start reaching out to the agents today, kind of seeing where they are, where we are," Schoen said. "We're going to see if we can get something done before Wednesday, when the new league year starts. We'll be in constant communication with those guys in the next few days."

The Giants need to upgrade the weaponry around Daniel Jones, newly signed to a $40 million-per-year contract. Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka used to be the quarterbacks coach in Kansas City, so he likely knows Mecole Hardman's skill set well. He wouldn't be blocked by more talented players in New York like he was in K.C., so perhaps he could take the next step forward in his career. His dynamic speed would allow Kafka to use him in a variety of ways, and he'd be a good fit for the low-average-depth-of-target offense they ran with Jones last year.
