The New York Giants have reached a deal to extend quarterback Daniel Jones, with negotiations going down to the wire on Tuesday ahead of the tag deadline.
According to Ian Rapoport, the parties are working on finalizing a four-year contract worth a whopping $160 million, with the player’s agents working up a frenzy in order to get the deal done before 4 PM.
Jones fired the Giants to the first playoff appearance win in 11 years and had made some hefty demands, with some even thinking it ludicrous. But he has now secured a lucrative contract with the G Men, who hope to improve further under Coach of the Year Brian Dabol in 2023.

Talks between the parties threatened to miss Tuesday’s deadline and the Giants would have been forced to use the franchise tag on the quarterback and lose $32.4 million in salary cap space.
Fortunately for everyone, they did not have to go that route.
The 25-year-old signal-caller recently switched agencies, ditching CAA in favor of Athletes First. The new agents spoke to Giants brass at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last week and resumed discussions with the team on Monday.
They weren’t able to iron out a deal until late in the day on Tuesday, however.
