Daniel Jones Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
The G-Men officially made their franchise QB a rich man. Check out the Giants’ Daniel Jones contract extension particulars.

As 2021 became 2022, the New York Giants weren’t sure about the future under center at the Meadowlands. In Brian Daboll’s first year as head coach, quarterback Daniel Jones was entering the last year of his rookie scale contract after the fifth-year team option on his deal had already been declined.

The former Duke Blue Devil turned around and made the playoffs thanks to the best campaign of his career.

Now, he’s cashing in as a result. Rather than slapping the QB with the franchise tag — that would have given him a 2023 salary number of $32.416 million — Jones is the owner of a four-year, $160 million contract extension.

We had previously conjectured about what such a deal might look like, and now, we have the cold, hard numbers for real — let’s take a closer look at the details behind the Giants’ impressive Daniel Jones contract extension.
