This is the year that Daniel Jones needs to show that he is the man going forward with the New York Giants, but after watching one throw in practice this week, it looks like it is going to be a long year for the G-men.
Check his latest throw from practice on Thursday that shows him dropping back from a shotgun formation and inexplicably throwing the ball straight to a Giants linebacker. He only got saved because the linebacker dropped the easy interception.
Jones has thrown 22 interceptions in his career, but even worse than that is his 29 fumbles lost in just 26 games started.
The New York Giants will kickoff their preseason schedule with an in-state matchup against the Jets on Saturday, but Jones won’t be playing.
Through his rookie season in 2019, Jones logged 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions en route to a 3-9 record as a starter. This past season, his starting record improved to 5-9, but his numbers dropped to 2,943 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Jones is currently on the third year of his rookie deal.
