It's still way too early to get excited about the 2024 season and as Brian Daboll has noted, no jobs are won or lost in May. However, the NY Giants have been hard at work at OTAs in East Rutherford and there are definitely some things that are standing out.

This goes in both directions, though, as some players are looking sharp early on, while there are certainly some concerns that the fanbase isn't too excited about. Having said that, we take a look at both sides in this piece, starting off with the presumed QB1 for the 2024 campaign:

5. Daniel Jones is making strides in his recovery - positive

Some people may be hoping that Daniel Jones isn't the starter once Week 1 gets here, but the fact of the matter is that it looks like Daboll and Joe Schoen are going to give him one more chance to prove his worth for the offense. Yes, Jones is coming off a horrible 2023, but he's been rehabbing around the clock this offseason to get himself healthy.

While Jones hasn't been fully cleared yet, he has taken part in 7-on-7 work, building an early connection with rookies Malik Nabers, Theo Johnson and the rest of the Big Blue pass-catchers. Jones unfortunately tore his ACL midway through last season, which was brutal to see for the former first-round pick.

Now, though, Danny Dimes is focused on getting himself close to 100 percent by the start of the new campaign. The expectation is that Jones will be ready to rock once camp gets here in the summer. Then in early September, he'll have a chance to put on a show against the Vikings in a Week 1 showdown at MetLife Stadium.
