What was supposed to be a memorable offseason for the NY Giants is already proving to be one filled with drama. We have quarterback Daniel Jones to thank for that.  According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Jones could end up looking for around $45 million per season with his next deal from NY.

Oh, Danny Dimes. You poor, greedy young man. On no planet is he worth that kind of a contract, but he’s trying to get his bag. Unfortunately for Jones, he’s missing the bigger picture and his latest decision is sure to cause the Giants some problems. Here’s four in particular:

4. Daniel Jones is straining his relationship with Joe Schoen

The absolute last thing any team wants to have happen is see their franchise quarterback get into a long-running beef with the front office. Look at what happened between the Cowboys and Dak Prescott, plus what’s currently going on with the Baltimore Ravens and star signal-caller Lamar Jackson.

Yeah, that kind of negative energy is not needed in East Rutherford, especially for an organization that has completely turned around the culture from previous years of struggle and depression. However, instead of pushing forward and keeping the good times rolling, Jones is indeed getting a bit greedy.

According to Giants insider Ryan Dunleavy, the contract talks between Jones’ camp and Schoen were bumpier than expected to start, which is expected with him asking for a boatload of cash. If Jones thinks he’s worth $45 million, then it’s Schoen’s job to remind him that he isn’t.

The longer these two can’t get on the same page, though, the more frustration that will certainly arrive for both parties.
