Thankfully for NY Giants fans out there, Baker Mayfield, officially, will not be joining the NY Giants this season. The rumors were rocking for a while, but Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen have decided to go with Daniel Jones for the 2022 season instead of trying to trade for Mayfield, who is now with the Carolina Panthers.

Jones, the former No. 6 pick, knows all too well about Mayfield. No one has forgotten about the time the new Carolina signal-caller said he couldn’t believe the Giants used such a high pick on him. Mayfield apologized to Jones following his comments in a GQ article and made everything right. Well, now these two players are all set to face off Week 2 this campaign. You already know Jones will be motivated.

Baker Mayfield will regret the day he ever called out Daniel Jones

"“I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones,” Mayfield told GQ in 2019. “It blows my mind. Some people overthink it. That’s where people go wrong. They forget you’ve gotta win.”"

While Mayfield and Jones have squashed their beef and everything is all good there, Jones will 100 percent be able to get the last laugh here in September. With the showdown scheduled for MetLife Stadium too, Giants fans will be ready to let Mayfield have it from start to finish in what should be a fun battle.

New York supporters are quite passionate when it comes to defending their players, which is of course bad news for Mayfield. The former No. 1 pick himself hasn’t produced the way people thought he would, as not too many people in Cleveland are going to miss him running the offense for the Browns in 2022.

Meanwhile for Jones, the excitement for his potential this season has never been higher, as a new offensive line is ready to make plays for him, while Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka are ready to let him rip it. A healthy Saquon Barkley is also going to be massive for Jones throughout the campaign.

Mayfield will hope Christian McCaffrey will be able to help him out a bit for the Panthers, but New York will be ready to silence both veterans once this matchup rolls around. Jones may not publicly say anything bad about Mayfield, but we’ll go ahead and do it for him. Mayfield is not a good quarterback and him blasting Jones out in the first place is a joke. Danny Dimes will make him eat his words, no question about it.
