Joe Schoen called out on ESPN for claiming he’s fully invested in Daniel Jones

Throughout the offseason, one of the biggest takeaways for the NY Giants has been both Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll fully backing Daniel Jones as their starting quarterback. If you ask either of those two, Danny Dimes is their guy.

Is he really, though? While the Giants have claimed they're ready to rock with Jones for the long haul, as long as he's healthy, the G-Men sure have been doing a lot of scouting of 2024 quarterback targets and plenty of insiders have them trading up for a stud QB. While on ESPN discussing the G-Men, insider Daniel Jeremiah said he's not buying all the Jones talk coming out of East Rutherford:

Daniel Jeremiah isn't convinced the Giants are all-in on Daniel Jones

"For a team that has said they are committed to Daniel Jones at quarterback, the Giants sure are doing a lot of homework on these quarterbacks for a team that says they are committed to the current one."

Mel Kiper Jr. has a different take on things, as he's pushing for the Giants to bring in a stud receiver for Jones in the first round. Should the Giants stay put at No. 6 overall, either Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze would provide the offense with something the team hasn't had since Odell Beckham Jr. was in town: a No. 1 WR.

However, Jeremiah still thinks the Giants will go after a quarterback early on during the first round of the draft and he's not alone there. In a new mock draft, Peter Schrager has Schoen trading up to No. 4 overall to bring in Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy.

Should that happen, Jones would still start the 2024 campaign, but it would be a total shocker if Schoen didn't release him next offseason. Because of his dead cap hit, the Giants won't cut Jones this spring or summer, but the same can't be said for 2025.

Soon enough, we'll find out what New York decides to do in the first round, but Jeremiah has a feeling Schoen has already made up his mind. Whether it be McCarthy, Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels, it sure is starting to feel like a top QB prospect will be making his way to East Rutherford soon enough.
