Updating a previous report, New York Giants QB Daniel Jones' four-year, $160 million deal includes a $36 million signing bonus, with a roster bonus of $500,000 in each year and base salaries of $9.5 million in 2023, $36.5 million in 2024, $30 million in 2025 and $46.5 million in 2026, per sources on Wednesday, March 8. Jones' salaries in 2023 and 2024 are guaranteed, and he can guarantee $12 million of his 2025 base salary if he's on the roster on the fifth day of the league year. Another $23 million is guaranteed for injury at signing. As was previously reported, Jones can make an extra $35 million in incentives and the deal has $82 million guaranteed and an expected cap hit of $18.5 million in the first year.

Impending free-agent QB Daniel Jones (Giants) reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth $160 million with the New York Giants on Tuesday, March 7. The deal also reportedly includes $35 million worth of incentives.
Huddle Up: The deal will probably be backloaded and give the Giants an out after two years. Jones thrived in his first season under the tutelage of head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, cutting down his turnovers in a big way and consistently showing off his dual-threat ability. Still, it is hard to justify this kind of contract for a quarterback who has never passed for more than 3,205 yards or 24 touchdowns. Nevertheless, his dual-threat ability and Daboll's presence gives him a real chance to be a low-end fantasy QB1 again in 2023.

New York Giants impending free-agent QB Daniel Jones will receive the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term contract by Tuesday, March 7.
Huddle Up: The two sides have been working on a contract, but it is believed that Jones is looking for around $45 million per season. He will be with the team for at least one more season but probably will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

The New York Giants are not expected to finalize a contract extension with QB Daniel Jones before the end of the day Sunday, March 5, according to multiple sources. Team officials and Jones' agents have been meeting for several days of negotiations at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis but no resolution appears to be in sight.
Huddle Up: According to sources, Jones was recently offered between $35 million and $39 million per season in a proposed deal but is reportedly seeking approximately $45 million annually. If possible, the Giants would prefer to avoid using the franchise tag on Jones because it would use up the bulk of the team's remaining salary cap space. He is coming off one of the better seasons in his career and can be viewed as a high-end QB2 option in most fantasy leagues for 2023, unless he can get a better supporting cast.

Huddle Up: It seems like Jones and the Giants are making progress in contract talks, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. Jones is coming off one of his best seasons in the NFL but probably will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Impending free-agent QB Daniel Jones (Giants) and the New York Giants are reportedly making progress toward ironing out a long-term extension, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Some of the reports on what Jones is asking for on a per-year basis are borderline ridiculous, somewhere in the $45 million range. It is more likely he settles into the $35-40 million range and agrees to numerous incentives instead. Either way, New York's ability to wrap up Jones' extension before next Tuesday's deadline is important if only because it would allow the Giants to put the franchise tag on Saquon Barkley and keep both players around. Stay tuned.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones is seeking a contract that pays him more than what the team is comfortable with and is heading for a franchise tag, ESPN's Dianna Russini reported on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
Huddle Up: This report comes on the heels of general manager Joe Schoen saying he had "no doubt" that Jones will be the starter in 2023. Jones is reportedly looking for a deal that pays him $45 million annually, while the Giants are likely more comfortable paying him close to what the franchise tag is, which is $32.4 million. New York prefers to avoid the franchise tag, as it would eat up the majority of the team's $46.8 million in cap space, but the Giants may have no other choice but to use it with both sides being so far apart. Jones was a solid QB2 in 2022 but has QB1 potential if he can get a better supporting cast.

Updating a previous report, the New York Giants are working on a long-term deal for QB Daniel Jones, who also is a candidate for the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: Regardless of where Jones ends up, he's a mid-QB2 for fantasy purposes.
