Daniel Jones: I’m focused on what I can control, I’m ready to go

There was no shortage of pre-draft talk about the Giants as potential players for a quarterback at the top of the draft, but the team ultimately went in a different direction.

Wide receiver Malik Nabers was their choice with the sixth overall pick and his presence should be a boost for quarterback Daniel Jones once Jones is cleared to return from the torn ACL that ended his 2023 season. While appearing Wednesday at an event honoring teammate Darius Slayton, Jones said he’s “in a good place” when it comes to that rehab and is focusing on his recovery rather than any flirtations the Giants may have have had with a switch as quarterback. .

“I’m focused on what I do can control and that is the preparation to play good football. So if I get healthy, I’ll be good to go,” Jones said, via Dan Duggan of TheAthletic.com.

It seems unlikely the Giants will pass on a ride on the quarterback carousel next year if Jones can’t show much more than he did before his injury last season, so keeping the focus on what he can do seems like the wisest course of action. action towards autumn.
