Things could be looking quite differently for the NY Giants this offseason if general manager Joe Schoen could have one key decision back. We're talking about the $160 million extension he decided to give Daniel Jones last March.

At the time, people couldn't believe Schoen was willing to give Danny Dimes that kind of a payday, doing so minutes before the deadline arrived. The latest buzz according to Rich Eisen is that the Giants and Schoen have serious 'buyer's remorse' and that the G-Men are 'done' with Jones. This all comes back to Schoen, who should have never given him such an absurd extension in the first place.

The Giants are rumored to be 'absolutely done' with Daniel Jones

Eisen's update is probably why the speculation continues to grow that the Giants are going to do everything possible to move into the Top 3 of the NFL Draft to bring in a new franchise signal-caller. Going after the No. 3 spot would make the most sense, with the Patriots reportedly eyeing three second-rounders in return.

Jones was expected to play at a high level after inking his new contract, but the 2023 season was a complete and total nightmare for him and Brian Daboll. Jones' year started off with the horrendous showing in the 40-0 loss at MetLife Stadium to the Cowboys.

Outside of a great second half against the Cardinals in Week 2, Jones looked the opposite of a $40 million per season quarterback. He finished with two touchdowns and six interceptions in six games for Big Blue. Things were only made worse with the torn ACL he suffered in Week 9 vs. Las Vegas.

This upcoming season is crucial for Schoen and Daboll, as the team is hoping to bounce back from its 6-11 season. If Schoen goes all-in on surrounding Jones with playmakers and the Giants finish with a losing record again, then the young GM could be on his way out of town.

Perhaps this is why he wants to try and bring in some new talent to help get this organization moving in the right direction. Once the draft gets here we'll know for sure, but Eisen seems adamant that the decision has already been made on Jones' future with the organization.
