Today on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn, LaVar Arrington and Jonas Knox react to Daniel Jones hiring a new agent and how that changes the strategy for the Giants heading into the franchise tag window.
Brady Quinn: "The Giants are looking at him going, 'Yeah, we don't feel like you're worth $45million a year and so here's what we're gonna do. We're gonna put the non-exclusive franchise tag on you. So you can play for $32.4million fully guaranteed this year, because we've tagged you, but we're gonna allow every other NFL team to potentially come in and negotiate a long term contract with you.'
They can either choose to match that or they could say no, they're gonna let you go with that team. And guess what that team gives up instead, two first round draft picks. So, I love this move for the New York Giants."
LaVar Arrington: "Much love, much respect to Daniel Jones, but I'm sorry, I'm not giving up two first rounders for him."
Jonas Knox: "Nobody's gonna love him as much as the Giants love him, and they loved him so much they didn't pick up his fifth year option."
