Eli Manning To Return to New York Giants; Daniel Jones No Longer Starting QB?

Written by Chris Powers

The 2021 off-season has been the year for quarterback controversy in the NFL. It feels like most of the teams have had some sort of issue at the quarterback position.

luckily for the New York Giants, that is not the case. For the time being it seems like the Giants are committed to Daniel Jones as the sat after for the upcoming 2021 season. In fact, Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox had the following to say on Jones’ position on the depth chart.

There will be no quarterback controversy for the New York Giants this season. Though he’s coming off a disappointing second campaign with an 11-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a passer rating of 80.4, Daniel Jones is the starter. The Giants are doing everything they can to support him.

They brought in pass-catchers Kenny Golladay and Kyle Rudolph in free agency and then used a first-round pick on speedy gadget receiver Kadarius Toney (4.39 40-yard dash). With running back Saquon Barkley expected to be back from last year’s ACL tear, Jones should have the supporting cast needed to succeed.

New York didn’t bring in quarterback competition in the offseason—Mike Glennon shouldn’t threaten Jones’ job—so this season will be all about proving that Jones is the long-term answer. If he cannot succeed with a revamped offensive roster, though, the Giants may have to start weighing other options.

In other New York Giants news, it sounds like former starting quarterback is returning to the franchise, but not in a capacity that you may think. Manning will be returning to the organization in a business strategy role. Check out a few of the tweets below that describe exactly what Eli will be doing.
