New York Giants Quarterback Options If They Can't Re-Sign Daniel Jones
Daniel Jones is an unrestricted free agent for the New York Giants. He has been their starting quarterback for the past few years. Jones has recently switched agents and is looking to get paid at $45 million per season, according to various reports.
He led them to a playoff win for the first time in over a decade and wants to get the bag. However, general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll know they can't afford to overpay him. If they let Daniel Jones walk and they should let him walk if he wants that much, what are the quarterback options next season for the New York Giants?
Tyrod Taylor was the backup for the New York Giants last season and will be entering the final season of his contract. Starting Taylor next season means that they are possibly going to tank for a big name like Caleb Williams or Drake Maye. It is hard to believe that they would lean toward Taylor because he is a game manager at best.
Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be a very cheap option and he would be a great bridge quarterback for a season. Garoppolo would bring a winning culture into the locker room and his time with the San Francisco 49ers is over. He will not have as big of a market as people think he will have and will be a cheap option for the New York Giants.
Tanner McKee is a 6'6" 230 lbs quarterback prospect out of Stanford University. The New York Giants will be selecting 25th overall in the 2023 NFL Draft. Will Levis, Anthony Richardson, C.J. Stroud, and Bryce Young will most likely be off the board by the time the New York Giants select.
Lamar Jackson is currently an unrestricted free agent for the Baltimore Ravens, but Baltimore is most likely to franchise tag him. Jackson will want to be traded since he hasn't received a new contract extension. It would be very interesting if the New York Giants made this move for him.
Derek Carr was released by the Las Vegas Raiders and he is looking for a new home. Carr recently visited the cross-town rivals the New York Jets. He would be an interesting name for the New York Giants franchise and it is quite possible general manager Joe Schoen, head coach Brian Daboll, and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka would be on board here as well.
