New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is now in his third season and playing at a relatively high level. However, there’s still much to learn about the professional game.

Luckily for Jones, he’s had team legend Eli Manning no more than an arm’s length away since coming into the league. But outside of Manning, whose brain would Jones like to pick?

While appearing on the “All In” podcast with USA TODAY’s Art Stapleton, Jones was asked that very question.

“That’s interesting. I think [Tom] Brady is one of those guys. [Aaron] Rodgers,” Jones said. “Those guys who have played at a high level. You know, growing up for me, it was Peyton Manning and in Charlotte, Jake Delhomme.

“So, I don’t know… You asked for one but that’s a few guys. But I think you can learn so much from a bunch of different people — it’d be awesome to talk to any of those guys.”

Brady, of course, just recently tossed his 600th career touchdown pass — the first player in NFL history to reach that milestone.

“That’s an incredible stat when you think about it. How well he’s played for how long. Obviously a tremendous amount of respect for that,” Jones said.

Jones, who has just 40 career touchdown passes, laughed off a question about potentially throwing 600 TDs himself. Instead, he says, he’s merely focused on picking up a win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.

The Giants are currently listed as 9.5-point road underdogs in that game, per Tipico.
