The New York Giants offseason is in full swing. The combine, free agency, and NFL Draft are going to be constantly examined and dissected until the first preseason game kicks off.

After taking Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in 2019 the New York Giants appeared to be set the quarterback position for years. This might be true with any other team but the Giants, their fans, and the New York media are all very different from normal teams. Instead, the rumor mill has been in overdrive. A quick recap for anyone wondering:

On February 25th Jordan Ranaan tweeted that new head coach Joe Judge has not fully committed to Jones as his starting quarterback. This could be for many reasons. A new coach attempting to establish a “culture.” Or Jones really didn’t impress Judge, so there really is a battle for the starting position. Or maybe its a message to Daniel Jones that his draft position does not guarantee him a starting spot.

Then on February 26th Michael Giardi of the NFL Network tweeted that Big Blue is on a list of possible suitors for Tom Brady. Basically, the day after Joe Judge claimed he hasn’t guaranteed Jones will be the starter, there are rumors that Judges’ quarterback from his previous coaching job might head to New York.

If Tom Brady leaves New England it will only be for a place where he has the potential to win a Super Bowl. Whether or not this rumor is true or even close to true, it continues as a further message of uncertainty about Daniel Jones’ position on the team.

The next part in the Daniel Jones quarterback saga was a Field Yates tweet about the team exercising their 2020 option for backup Alex Tanney. Tanney has spent the last few seasons collecting checks without actually dressing for games. But what this signing means is that the Giants will only spend one more roster spot on a quarterback.

A big speculation point of this offseason will be whether or not the team fully invests in Daniel Jones. Do they wish to take a flier on one of the very talented veterans on the market? Or will Big Blue draft another quarterback this year (the way Arizona did with Kyler Murray/Josh Rosen)?

After a turbulent 2019 season, the G-Men are still faced with the most pressing issue for a franchise: do we have our starting quarterback? Right now, the answer seems that no one is sure and literally all possibilities are open. Without any newcomers on the roster,  Daniel Jones is the New York Giants starting quarterback, for the time being. But no one should feel comfortable about the situation.
