EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Daniel Jones has rarely given any insight into his feelings in his three seasons as the New York Giants starting quarterback.
So it was no surprise Thursday when the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 draft shrugged off how he felt after the Giants refused last month to pick up his fifth-year option on his rookie contract.
It would have cost the Giants and new general manager Joe Schoen $22.3 million to keep Jones under contract in 2023. It was an amount they didn't want hanging over their heads if Jones struggled again. The 24-year-old Duke product has posted a 12-25 record since becoming a starter early in his rookie season, replacing Eli Manning.
