Entering his second season, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was reported on as having bulked up. “He will look more cut-up,” QB coach Anthony Boone told Paul Schwartz of The New York Post back in June.
We now have confirmation of that.
The Giants showed a side-by-side comparison of Jones during training camp in 2019 and 2020.
Boone estimated that Jones is up from 220 pounds and is closer to 230.
“He’s done a good job of putting together a good physique,” Boone said. “At the end of the day he wanted to get stronger and get a little more meat on his bones but still maintain being able to run and move around and being on the field the whole time. Not ‘I’ve put on too much weight and I get short-winded now.’ His thing was make sure he could stay mobile, agile and be out on the field the whole time.”
Jones hopes adding weight this offseason can help solve the biggest issue from his rookie campaign: fumbles. The QB fumbled 18 times, losing 11 in 13 games.
During his rookie season, Jones threw for 3,027 yards and 24 touchdowns.
