Daniel Jones extension estimate with the New York Giants

There is one QB in NFL history with 300+ passing yards, 2+ passing TDs, and 70+ rushing yards in a playoff game.

His name is Daniel Jones, and he did it against the Minnesota Vikings last night and led the Giants to an unlikely 31-24 win in the NFL wild card round. Jones looked cool, calm and collected under center and as the pressure mounted his performance built in response.

Now the Giants have a date with the No. 1-seeded Philadelphia Eagles next week, and Jones will look to continue building his playoff resume. However, whenever the Giants end their playoff run, they must decide whether it’s worth keeping Daniel Jones in New York.

I think they will agree, but the question is: for how long and for how much do you sign it?

Why Daniel Jones will re-sign with the New York Giants

First and foremost, I believe Daniel Jones and the New York Giants will reach a contractual agreement this offseason as both sides will benefit from maintaining that relationship.

A homegrown talent for the Giants, Jones has made notable strides in their new system introduced by new head coach Brian Daboll this preseason. Daboll seems to be staying here, which means his system is staying as well.

If Jones has already excelled with almost no offensive weapons to catch his passes, why wouldn’t New York want to continue investing in this year’s product?

Jones, on the other hand, knows all too well how tough life in the NFL can be if you don’t get the right coaching. He struggled immensely in the first three years of his career and is only now beginning to see his potential under Brian Daboll.

So if you’re in his position why leave after a year with the coach who finally helped you reach your potential?

Both sides would benefit from an extension of their relationship, but of course there are conditions that need to be clarified. Based on his game in the second half of 2022, what does a Daniel Jones contract look like in 2023?

So what is a contract with Daniel Jones worth in 2023?

Let’s start this discussion by looking at Jones’ estimated market value. This figure comes from Spotrac, one of the leading sources of professional sports contract information. Here’s what they claim:

Market value: 3 years, $76,610,883 (average value of $25,536,961)

That would place Jones roughly between Ryan Tannehill and Tom Brady in terms of contract value for a quarterback. While that dollar amount may be accessible to the Giants, my gut tells me Jones could command more money given his play on the track.

The more Daniel Jones wins, the more his salary number will go up. If we’re talking about comparable quarterbacks, he’s not in the Allen-Mahomes conversation, but he’s certainly in conversation with a player of Kyler Murray’s caliber, and he was drastically overpaid by his Arizona team.

Granted, Jones was successful for one (1) season, so the lack of a track record for New York during their negotiations may be a saving grace. Needless to say, there are many aspects to consider before closing a deal.

The question becomes: Are you paying for what he did or what you think he could do?

With all the analysis provided, my prediction for a Daniel Jones contract with New York is as follows: four years, $112 million ($28 million average).

The Giants, Jets and Bills have all made it to the NFL’s highest peak, but not every team was good enough to win. Here are ten teams from New York that played for the Super Bowl.
