Daniel Jones : Contract guaranteed money | Salary
Jones attended Charlotte Latin School in Charlotte, North Carolina.
During his high school career, he had 6,997 passing yards and 98 touchdowns.
Despite these numbers, Jones was barely recruited coming out of high school and was not ranked by Rivals.com.
Jones originally committed to Princeton University to play college football, but then opted to become a walk-on at Duke University.

This is big for multiple reasons. For starters, the Giants will avoid the $32.4 million cap hit that would have come with placing the non-exclusive franchise tag on Danny Dimes.
Now, Schoen can go after some of his key targets in free agency, with a strong focus on linebackers, receivers, defensive backs and more.
Not only that, but the Giants can also use the franchise tag on Saquon Barkley, which will result in No. 26 earning $10.1 million next season.
Schoen wanted to get a multi-year deal done with Saquon as well, but it wasn’t meant to be.
As for Jones, the Giants didn’t pick up his fifth-year option ahead of the 2022 campaign, so the signal-caller knew he needed to ball out to extend his future in East Rutherford.
Late in the summer, people were calling for Jones to get benched, as plenty of fans wanted Tyrod Taylor to be the starter.
Jones silenced his haters early on, powering the Giants to an upset win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.
Things got even better for him, as NY finished the regular season 9-7-1. Then in the postseason, Jones and Barkley were rockstars in the upset road win against the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round.
In 2022, the last year of his rookie deal, Jones improved under the first-year head coach Brian Daboll and helped lead the Giants to a 9-7-1 record and the franchise’s first playoff win since the 2011 season.
- Annual Salary : $40,000,000
Jones posted career bests in passing yards (3,205) and completion percentage (67.2) and threw just five interceptions in the regular season. The team’s season ended with a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the N.F.C. playoffs.
Jones’s emergence was among the highlights for a franchise that brought in new leadership. In January 2022, the Giants hired Joe Schoen as general manager and Daboll as coach from the Buffalo Bills.
Schoen did not exercise the fifth-year option on Jones’s rookie contract, setting up the 2022 season as a “prove it” year for Jones, who had been dogged by injuries and turnovers since the team drafted him with the No. 6 overall pick in 2019.
Jones compiled a 12-25 record in his first three seasons, playing under three offensive coordinators and two head coaches.
