The Daniel Jones contract left an impression on players around the league. Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill and Chicago Bears S Jaquan Brisker both came out against Daniel Jones after the contract was signed.
It started with Jaquan Brisker
Darius Slayton came to his (former?) QBs defense by retweeting the tweet with the score of the Giants vs Bears game earlier this year.
And then all-pro WR Tyreek Hill jumped in – taking a shot at Jones’ ability to throw the ball downfield. Jones did have the lowest average depth of target of any qualifying QB since 2014 with just 6.4 yards last season.
Separately from this thread, Kayvon also came to Jones’ defense:
To be honest, I’m just surprised he knows who Jones is (IYKYK).
Either way, the Giants will likely face scrutiny for the Jones contract the rest of the offseason. It’ll be up to Joe Schoen to surround Jones with talent and for Jones to prove he’s worth every Danny dime.
