Daniel Jones Is Now on the Clock

It may be a platitude and they may be lying, but ask any player or coach in the NFL about a time for celebration and they’ll note how short lived it should be. The dividing line between joy and the inevitable emotional pinch of the next prove-it situation is so thin you wonder how anyone enjoys anything.

It’s fair to wonder if that’s the case with Daniel Jones on a fascinating Saturday for the Giants. The team signed Kenny Golladay to a four-year deal worth $72 million, making the receiver one of New York’s most significant non-draft acquisitions in more than a decade. The last time the Giants were this invested in the offensive side of the ball via free agency, they inked Plaxico Burress to a six-year deal the year before winning a Super Bowl.

Golladay now leads a unit with incredible upside. Alongside a healthy Sterling Shepherd, Darius Slayton, Kyle Rudolph and (in an ideal world) a version of Evan Engram whose catch rate can more closely resemble his athleticism and route running ability, they are likely the most complete unit on paper in the division if you factor a healthy Saquon Barkley into the fold as both a runner and receiver (Dallas would theoretically be a close second, with more star power at wide receiver, but a less complete tight end depth chart and a declining Ezekiel Elliott).
