Improved Daniel Jones Return A Priority For New York Giants
Quarterback Daniel Jones enjoyed his best professional season as the New York Giants became surprise Wild Card winners.
In the aftermath of their elimination to the Eagles, general manager Joe Schoen says the organization wants Daniel Jones back.
In his first year under head coach Brian Daboll, Daniel Jones finished with a career-high completion percentage of 67.2.
As well as that, he had 3,205 passing yards and a 15-5 touchdown to interception ratio. Jones became a dual threat last season with 120 rushes for 708 yards and seven touchdowns.

“We’d like Daniel to be here,” Schoen said Monday. “Again, he said it yesterday, there’s a business side to it, but we feel like Daniel played well this season. He’s done everything that we asked him to do.
“Again, there’s a business side to it, we haven’t went down that road yet. We still got to have our meetings with our staff late in the week and we’ll devise an offseason plan. We haven’t had those meetings yet, but we would like to have Daniel Jones back.”
“I don’t know if there was necessarily an ‘ah ha’ moment or anything like that. We’ve just continued to evaluate him throughout the season and what the coaches were asking him to do, and he was executing the game plans,” Schoen said of Jones’ improvement.
“Dabes and I communicate on a daily basis. Not just Dabes and I, but the offensive staff and what they’re asking him to do, and he continued to prove throughout the season. I don’t know the exact date or time when we were like, ‘Daniel is our guy,’ but we’re pleased with how he played this season.”
