New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has a lot to prove in 2022.

It doesn’t matter that he’s on his third coach in four years or that he’s never had any kind of consistency, he’s in a make-it-or-break-it situation.

If he can prove he’s a leader both on and off the field, if he can execute on the field and take care of the football, it will go a long way toward advancing his NFL career. If he fails, he’s likely destined to be a backup forever, no matter where he lands.

Whether this is in an effort to show he can be a leader year-round, whether it’s an effort to create an early bond with skill players or whether he decided to take a page out of Eli Manning’s playbook, Jones decided to organize workouts.

Jones will meet with skill players in Charlotte, NC over the next few days to conduct a group workout.

Jones’ three-year stats have been thrown around all over the place during the offseason, and while stats don’t paint the whole picture, they shed light on a player.

Are all 29 interceptions and 11 fumbles his fault? Not likely. More likely is it’s a combination of his youth and inexperience combined with a shoddy offensive line or a tipped ball or a number of other scenarios.

Still, Jones played a part and he has to make those adjustments. Having these extra workouts with his skill players should help increase their mental connection and decrease the number of drops and miscommunication on the field.

At this point, Jones’ desire to play and perform at a high level is not in question, but his ability to execute is. That he’s aware of the problem and seeks to remedy it is a positive sign.
