General manager Joe Schoen reiterated Tuesday that the Giants are planning for Jones (knee) to enter training camp as their starter, though Schoen noted that the team isn't ruling out selecting a quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft, Connor Hughes of reports.

Despite being rewarded with a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason, Jones failed to quell concerns that he's not the long-term answer at quarterback for the Giants. He completed 108 of 160 pass attempts (67.5 percent) for 909 yards (5.7 YPA), two touchdowns and six interceptions to go with 206 rushing yards and a touchdown on 40 carries in six games before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in his right knee and undergoing surgery Nov. 22. Given the timing of the procedure, Jones should be ready for the start of training camp in late July, but the Giants own the No. 6 overall pick in the draft, putting them in a solid position to select a signal-caller from what's regarded as a strong quarterback class. If the team elects to address needs elsewhere on the roster with the No. 6 pick, Jones would head into the upcoming season with much more job security.
