The NY Giants didn’t take a quarterback in the NFL Draft and will be running it back with Daniel Jones in 2024. It appears the Giants quarterback room is set with Jones, Drew Lock and Tommy DeVito. After receiving a massive four-year, $160 million extension last offseason, Jones battled two major injuries and just played poorly in 2023.

In 2022, jones helped lead the Giants to the playoffs. He had 3,205 yards passing, 708 yards rushing and 22 total touchdowns to just eight total turnovers. He looked excellent in Brian Daboll's offense. In 2023, things could not have gone worse. Now, the pressure is on for Jones in 2024 and there are no more excuses for him. Here are four reasons why:

4. The improved offensive line this offseason

The Giants have notoriously had some dreadful offensive line play during Jones' tenure as the Giants starting quarterback and it has contributed to some poor play and some injuries. According to Pro Football Focus the Giants had the 30th ranked offensive line in football last season. In 2022 they ranked 18th, so it was a massive fall off at the position.

Most importantly the Giants hope to have a full season from a healthy Andrew Thomas, who is one of the best left tackles in football, but dealt with some injuries in 2023. They will also hope some of the other starters returning continue to perform.

The Giants didn’t draft any offensive linemen in the draft, but made some veteran additions in free addition, highlighted by Jermaine Eluemunor and Jon Runyan Jr. While they didn’t make a massive splash at the position, both veterans should help stabilize the revolving door that the team has had on the offensive line. Eluemunor has already won fans over with his passion and general excitement to be with the team.
