Other Giant observations
Jones’ new agents from Athletes First are traveling to New Jersey on Monday to meet in person with Giants general manager Joe Schoen, according to NFL Network. They’ll continue long-term contract talks that heated up last week in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine — but ultimately resulted in no deal.
Tuesday at 4 p.m. is the franchise tag deadline. If the Giants and Jones don’t have a deal by then, he will be tagged for $32.416 million — which would prevent Schoen from using the $10.091 million tag on Barkley, who also is a pending free agent. Teams can use only one tag per offseason.

The QB dominoes should start falling this week. Best guesses from my GM crowd-sourcing: Derek Carr to the Saints, Aaron Rodgers no one knows, truly (but I’m guessing Jets), Lamar Jackson and Daniel Jones franchised, Jimmy Garoppolo being the beneficiary of some QB uncertainty sometime in March.
