Daniel Jones breaks the bank
BET À DAY
The New York Giants addressed a significant issue by offering a new four-year deal to quarterback Daniel Jones on Tuesday, moments before the deadline to hand over concession player tags to the NFL.
According to “The Score”, the 25-year-old pivot has signed a contract worth a total of $160 million. He could also get his hands on an additional $35 million in performance bonuses.
Jones is coming off the best season of his NFL career, helping the Giants get back to the playoffs for the first times since 2016. During the regular season, he amassed 3,205 yards and 15 touchdowns through the air, in addition to registering seven majors with his legs.
The quarterback was one of the two priority files of the New York formation of this off-season. The other is running back Saquon Barkley, who could have become a free agent next week.
That won't be the case after the Giants handed him their franchise tag. If he accepts it and can't agree on the terms of a longer deal, Barkley could make just over $10 million in 2023.
