Just recently, NFL Network’s David Carr, a former signal-caller himself, raised plenty of eyebrows when he said on air that he thinks the NY Giants could make a move to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo. If you ask Carr, the Giants, and other teams, might be waiting to see what Jimmy G does early on in the preseason before making a move.
Garoppolo has dealt with injuries throughout his career, but right now people are focused more on his shoulder woes. If he slings the ball around during the preseason next month, could that lead to general manager Joe Schoen trying to make a trade to have the veteran run the offense for Brian Daboll? If you take a look at social media, Giants fans absolutely hate that idea.
NY Giants supporters want to G-Men to rock with Daniel Jones over Jimmy Garoppolo
When scrolling through Twitter specifically, people who love Big Blue don’t want the Giants and Schoen to make any kind of a move for the San Francisco 49ers’ QB. If anything, they want NY to stick with Daniel Jones for 2022 to see what he can do and not touch Garoppolo with a 10-foot pole.
The people have spoken here and done so in passionate fashion, which is always going to be expected when we’re talking about the Giants. The fact of the matter is that a trade for Garoppolo really doesn’t make a ton of sense from a cap standpoint for NY. There’s just no money to pay the QB.
On top of that, Schoen, Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka strongly believe that Jones will be able to show major improvements from start to finish this season. Jones certainly has struggled for the Giants thus far, but the new offensive game plan should help him take his talents to the next level.
Garoppolo may have more experience than Jones, but New York can’t afford his cap hit. Instead, Schoen should go all-in on Jones for ’22 and then reassess things at the end of the campaign. If Danny Dimes does choke early on in the year, Daboll could also give the ball to Tyrod Taylor, who signed with the team this offseason.
Garoppolo could suit up for a new team in the coming weeks, but it would be a major shock if he arrived in East Rutherford. Fans clearly wouldn’t be happy at all if something were to go done here. Schoen needs to stay away.
