New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is more focused on learning plays than his contract situation as he enters the final year of his rookie deal.
This week, Jones got his first look at the playbook of Brian Daboll, the former Buffalo Bills offensive guru that the Giants, 8/1 to win their division title this season, brought in to revive their QB's flagging fortunes.
The NFC East team haven't had a winning season since taking Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
The Giants are 12-25 with him as the starter, and he has 49 turnovers in 38 career games.
But despite the uncertainty that his lack of success has created for the franchise with a looming decision over whether exercise a fifth-year option worth $22.4 million for 2023, Jones is fully focused on preparing for the crucial year ahead.
"There will be a time and place for those conversations," he said, via ESPN.
"We'll see and we'll take care of that. We'll do that when it comes up. But I'm focused on what we're doing here and preparing and taking advantage of every day we have here together."
"For me, like I said, my focus is on preparing myself," Jones added. "I take full responsibility for how I played. We haven't won enough games. We haven't scored enough points. We haven't done things well enough.
"I take responsibility for that as a quarterback. You play a big role in those things. That is what I'm focused on. I'm working on improving and making sure myself as well as the offense and team is ready to go daily."
