NFL: Time is running out for the Giants
BETTING À DAY
The New York Giants and quarterback Daniel Jones are still a long way from common ground.
The 25-year-old center could become a free agent on March 13. The Big Apple organization can, however, make sure to maintain Jones' services by handing him their concession player tag. She has until Tuesday to do so.
“We're starting to feel like the clock is ticking a bit,” Giants general manager Joe Schoen told the NFL Network. I wish we were a little closer to an agreement right now. But again, there is still time.”
According to the ESPN network, the quarterback would like to obtain a multi-year contract which would allow him to receive at least $45 million annually. Jones is coming off his career best season in the NFL. He completed 67.2% of the passes he attempted for 3,205 yards and 15 touchdowns, in addition to crossing the goal line seven times with the ball in hand.
Also, he threw just five interceptions in 16 games, which is his lowest total in a year since he was on the Goodell circuit.
The Giants must also settle the running back file Saquon Barkley, who is basically in the same position as Jones. He could also be an interesting candidate for the franchise player tag.
