Daniel Jones will ‘absolutely’ be Giants’ QB next year
Phil Simms has already made up his mind.
Midway through the Giants’ “Sunday Night Football” matchup with the Commanders, the team’s legendary quarterback gave Daniel Jones his official seal of approval.
“I’ve seen enough this year & Daniel Jones has exceeded expectations – [in my opinion] he will absolutely be the Giants QB next year,” Simms tweeted.
Jones had just led a touchdown drive before halftime as the Giants carried a 14-3 lead into the break. Jones completed 14 of 20 passes for 118 yards in the first half.
After the team notably did not pick up his fifth-year option before the season, Jones will be a free agent following the season. The Giants must decide whether to bring Jones back long-term, let him walk, or use other tag options that could prove expensive. The decision looms over the rest of the Giants’ offseason.
Simms played his entire 15-year career with the Giants, helping the team to two Super Bowl titles in 1986-87 and 1990-91. He’s currently an analyst for CBS.
Entering Sunday’s game, Jones had completed 66 percent of his passes for 2,534 yards, 12 touchdowns and four interceptions on the season.
