Who Will be the NY Giants QB in 2022?
The NY Giants are in the midst of another disastrous season and the only remaining thing that mattered was evaluating Daniel Jones and now he’s shutdown for the season.
NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ season is done, his future in New York murkier than ever.
Jones finished the season for the Giants with 10 passing touchdowns, seven interceptions, 2428 yards, two rushing touchdowns, 298 yards, and 64.3 completion percentage in 11 games.
Jones’ best game was against the Saints where he passed for 402 yards and 2 touchdowns leading game-tying and winning drives in overtime. That was the only game this season where the NY Giants had the full offensive line. With the neck injury Daniel Jones future is in doubt.
If the NY Giants choose to move off of Daniel Jones some veterans could be possibilities.
Some names that have come up are Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and Jimmy Garoppolo. Rodgers is certainly the least likely. It’s not even a guarantee he would want to leave Green Bay and if he did it’s not likely a cash-strapped NY Giants team would be his first choice.
A lot of people are speculating that Russell Wilson will be leaving Seattle. Wilson’s relationship in Seattle appears to be coming to an end. The NY Giants would certainly have to give up a ton to get Wilson. Is it worth it going after the 32-year-old or is it better to try and rebuild. Wilson is still sporting a great 17-3 touchdown to interception rate.
Jimmy Garoppolo could be on the move after the 49ers drafted Trey Lance in the 2021 draft. Stop gaps like Marcus Mariota have also been mentioned as options.
It’s possible the NY Giants also go after a quarterback in the NFL draft as they currently have two top 6 picks in the NFL draft. This appears to be the least likely option as the NY Giants have so many significant needs.
Another scenario with the NY Giants is Daniel Jones is the starter for the team in 2022 assuming he is healthy. They will give him one last chance to prove himself and they will try and get the cap situation in order while finally fixing the offensive line with the draft picks.
It remains to be seen what happens with Daniel Jones. It’s likely the NY Giants will have a new general manager in 2022 and it’s even possible they can have a new head coach. Jones is certainly linked to General Manager Dave Gettleman and Head Coach Joe Judge. Once these things are sorted out it will likely determine if Jones is the quarterback in 2022.
