SNY’s Connor Hughes reports a “fair” average expected annual value for Daniel Jones is $35-37 million per season.
Hughes talked to a few executives at the Senior Bowl to come up with this number, with one telling him that there’s “no way in hell” he’d make Daniel Jones a $40 million a year quarterback.
Hughes notes that the Giants could sign Jones to a long-term contract to try to get the AAV higher without a huge commitment, but also says the Giants will franchise tag Jones if they can’t reach a deal.
There seems to be little doubt that Jones will be a Giant next year, the only question is how long of a contract he’ll get.
