Giants news, 3/4: Latest on Daniel Jones contract negotiations

New York Giants news for Saturday

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Latest on Daniel Jones

Looks like you had better get used to the idea of Daniel Jones making $40 million or more annually — if he and the Giants can work out a deal before Tuesday’s franchise tag deadline.

Here is more revealing reporting from Ryan Dunleavy and Ian O’Connor:

There is also this from Paul Schwartz of the New York Post:

General manager Joe Schoen has not played coy at all, stating unequivocally he will put the tag on Jones on Tuesday if a contract agreement is not reached.

And yes, the Giants can then negotiate with Jones all the way up until July 17.

By that time, the two sides must have a multi-year agreement in place or else the player must play on a one-year deal in 2023.

The thinking by the Giants this time around, though, is that if a contract with Jones is not worked out by Tuesday there is no reason to believe it will get done at all.

“If it doesn’t get done by the seventh it’s probably not going to get done,’’ a Giants source told the Post.

If it does not get done by Tuesday, Jones goes on the books for the $32.4 million tag price for quarterbacks and the leverage shifts to the Giants.

Jones’ camp has to know that.

The Giants will move on with their business, absorbing the $32.4 million salary cap hit — it would be less than half of that on a five-year deal — and that business could include parting ways with Saquon Barkley and shopping the bargain bin for offensive help for Jones.

That is why both sides want something to happen in the next few days.

Why players love Brian Daboll
