No. 3: Jimmy Garoppolo to the New York Giants

The New York Giants‘ pitiful Week 11 Monday Night Football loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers put a stamp on the notion things could potentially be blown up for Big Blue this offseason.

The G-Men already made progress here by relieving offensive coordinator Jason Garrett from his duties earlier this week, and there’ll probably be calls for head coach Joe Judge to be let go, too, at some point as well.

New York quarterback Daniel Jones has taken only modest steps from being the turnover-prone signal-caller he was a year ago, and Week 11 was arguably his worst game of the season anyway, him tossing two more interceptions en route to seven on the season, on pace to surpass the 10 he tossed a year ago.

That doesn’t help matters at all.

The Giants have until May of 2022 to decide whether or not they want to pick up Jones’ fifth-year option, a decision in the mix with him being a former first-round draft choice. A casual analysis says they won’t, especially in light of his struggles after all the attempts to bolster the G-Men offense with supporting weapons.

It all would depend if New York sees Jimmy Garoppolo as a notable upgrade, and obviously, any coaching changes would have to be on board, too.

But, in contrast to what was a projected scope last offseason, the Giants are suddenly looking like they’d be interested in a veteran like Garoppolo after flaming out on Jones.
