Daniel Jones Restructures $160M Contract, Giants Open $6.3M in Cap Space

ESPN's Field Yates said that New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones reworked his contract before the 2023 NFL season.

The Giants gain $6.315 million in salary cap space. Jones inked his four-year, $160 million New York contract in spring.

It's unclear if general manager Joe Schoen's increased freedom has a target.

The front staff may want some flexibility to make midseason trades to address injuries or roster shortcomings. The apparent conclusion is that Schoen is pursuing something greater.

Mike Evans, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers star, could be traded before Oct. 31.

Evans' representatives say he'll leave Tampa Bay as a free agent next offseason without an agreement before Week 1. The Bucs may trade him rather than lose him in 2024.

Evans' 2023 basic contract is $13 million, and the Giants were $2.7 million under the cap before Jones' restructure. The math still doesn't add up, but obtaining the four-time Pro Bowler became easier.

Giants supporters may be hoping for nothing as there's little to link the two parties beyond guesswork.
