Could a short-term deal work for Daniel Jones and the Giants? | ProFootballTalk

PFT Mike Florio

Fifth, $45 million is not an unreasonable request, given the current market, Jones’ performance in 2022, the Giants’ current options, and the salary cap situation. For the quarterback, the ball is moving north of $50 million per year. And while Patrick Mahomes’ friendly contract makes it difficult for low-end players (ie, every other quarterback in the world) to get more, it’s important to look at Mahomes’ deal as the exception and not the rule.

If the Giants were to give Jones a two-year contract that guaranteed him under the tag over the next two years ($32.416 million for 2023 with a 20 percent raise for 2024), that’s $71.315 million in total. 35.65 million US …. It will give both sides two years to work out a long-term agreement, and it will give the Giants two years to make sure that 2022 is not an aberration.

Left tackle Andrew Thomas and safety Xavier McKinney are also in the talks, according to Duggan of The Atlantic. “One thing that good teams do is they are proactive in locking up these local players,” he said.

Duggan believes it’s a good idea to open discussions with players like Thomas and McKinney while they’re under contract. “Beat them to the punch,” he said about players in special draft classes and position groups.

WR Kenny Golladay will probably be a hat-trick. Cutting it would create $6.7 million in savings while leaving $14.7 million in dead money. There will be rumors that the Giants could declare Golladay cut after June 1, which would result in $13.5 million in cap space and $7.9 million in dead money this year. Failure to do so would push $6.8 million in dead money into 2024.

However, as with Javon Hargrave, the Eagles may find a replacement for TJ Edwards on the roster in two years of pro Nakobe Dean. Edwards may be allowed to test the waters within the agency for free. The team took a big step forward in 2022 and made the postseason, but the run defense remains a major liability. New York was 27th in the league in run defense, mainly because the Giants’ linebacking corps was the weakest in the entire NFL.

Projected Contract: Four years, $49 million, $30 million guaranteed

Giants: WR Jakobi Meyers.

With Daniel Jones possibly back on the mark or a new deal, it’s inevitable that their focus will turn to ensuring the young QB’s are the best players. Meyers, 26, doesn’t scream “superstar,” but he’s certainly the best wideout there is, one who can win at the top on and off the field. Confidence is exactly what Brian Daboll should be looking for.

New York Giants: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU. Stuck at receiver, the Giants desperately need a star target on the outside. They head into the 2022 season with some valuable balance but can’t rely on Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James to carry the passing corps again. Quentin Johnston averaged an incredible 19.0 yards per reception on 115 career catches at TCU.
