What about Daniel Jones’ stat line?

The pressure is on Jones.

This will undoubtedly be the strongest supporting cast the NY Giants have surrounded their young quarterback with, and the organization spent a mint to do it. Golladay’s deal includes upwards of $45 million in guarantees, Toney was a first-round draft pick, Kyle Rudolph will receive $9.25 million in guarantees over the life of his contract.

Between the resources the NY Giants committed to making sure Jones has one of the most dynamic collections of skill players to get the ball to, and an offensive line with potentially a pair of second-year bookend tackles, this season will likely determine just how committed the organization is to Jones long-term.

Through two seasons, Jones has tossed 22 interceptions, including 10 last season with just 11 touchdowns in his second NFL season.

For the NY Giants to burst through the postseason door and Jones to assure the organization he has the potential to be one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks, he’ll need to take better care of the football and be far more productive.

We’ll see if he’s able to do both.

Predicting Daniel Jones’ stat line: 3,810 yards with 31 touchdowns, 15 interceptions
