Ahead of a pivotal 2024 campaign for Daniel Jones and the New York Giants offense as a whole, Big Blue’s franchise quarterback is doing everything he can to get on the same page as his wide receiving corps.

Last season, where much of the Giants fanbase turned their back on Jones due to his play in limited action, the former first-round quarterback didn’t have much time to gel with his pass-catchers. He never quite looked like he was on the way towards developing a connection with players like Wan’Dale Robinson, Darius Slayton, Jalin Hyatt or even freshly-retired Darren Waller during the season. 

Well, Jones is taking the necessary steps to rectify that in 2024. ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reported that the quarterback brought his receivers with him to North Carolina, where they’re enjoying some fun lake activities and practicing some routes. This is a great bonding trip for everyone involved.

As you can tell, that’s a pretty fun way to make some memories and build a connection in the offseason. It certainly beats the sweltering heat that East Rutherford has experienced over the last week and change. It’s easy to see why Jones and his wide receivers would be enjoying practicing in those conditions in North Carolina. 

As Raanan added, Eli Manning used to bring his wide receivers to Duke for some work in the offseason, including players like Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz. It always helped with their chemistry, so perhaps that’ll go a long way towards Jones finding the right mix with his pass-catchers in 2024.

No matter how much fun in the sun the Giants have in North Carolina, though, it won't matter if their offensive line doesn’t hold up. Perhaps the jetskis couldn’t handle the weight of the team’s hulking lineman, but we’re hoping they’re working hard too. That’s going to be the lifeblood of the team this season.

Regardless, Jones is moving forward with an eye on this coming season, and he’ll be doing everything he can to remain the Giants starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. His contract gets knocked down a peg with every gigantic extension, which works in his favor, as well. The one way to keep his job is to play well and stay healthy, and the former first-rounder has the right attitude entering a new campaign it seems.
