One of the biggest topics of conversation this offseason is on whether or not the NY Giants are going to bring back Daniel Jones on a mega-deal. Danny Dimes, coming off the best season of his young career, could end up making more than $35 million a season after what he was able to get done in 2022.
Looking at his potential for the future, how good can Jones be? One person who has been following his career quite closely has been Giants great Tiki Barber.
Not only does Barber think Jones can be a playmaker for Big Blue for the long haul, but he also thinks Jones will end up becoming the best QB in the division. Holy smokes.
Daniel Jones is hoping to land a monster contract from the NY Giants
Barber didn’t hold back there and he really thinks Jones can become a Top 10 quarterback thanks to the coaching from Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka. What made Jones so special this season was his ability to hit his receivers in stride, but also his ability to take off and run with the ball.
Him topping 700 rushing yards was fantastic to see and it surely infuriated opposing defenses. Jones just wrapped up Year 1 with Daboll and he’s only going to get better over the next few seasons – assuming he and the Giants front office can come to an agreement on a multi-year deal of course.
Having said that, we can’t forget about the other signal-callers in the NFC East. Jalen Hurts looked like an NFL MVP candidate this year and he’s got the Eagles one win away from bringing home the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in franchise history.
With Dak Prescott, he’s been so up and down throughout his career and his lack of success in the playoffs continues to haunt him. Jones helped power the Giants past the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card, but he wasn’t able to step up against the Eagles in the Divisional Round.
If Hurts leads Philly to a Super Bowl win, he’ll not only lock in his spot as the top QB in the NFC, but a lot of people will be ready to put him in the Top 3 conversation. If you ask Barber, though, Jones will be ready to fly past him down the road.
