Giants Say No To Daniel Jones Fifth-Year Option


Draft day started getting interesting when the New York Giants declined to pick up quarterback Daniel Jones’ fifth-year option, making him a potential free agent next March. There has been a lot of speculation about this since last season ended, but the Giants made it official Thursday. There are two ways this can be taken and it will be very intriguing to see how it plays out. This could be a move of “motivation,” or it is a sign that the Giants are ready to move on.

The Motivation Route

New York is once again in the midst of a regime change with the hiring of head coach Brian Daboll, the innovative offensive coordinator from Buffalo. He helped make a star out of Bills quarterback Josh Allen and that was the expectation for him and Jones.
