Meaning they planned on moving away from him after this season.
But now that the Giants are 5-1, they might be having second thoughts about that move.
While Jones has been far from elite this season, he is leading his team to wins.

No matter his stats in those games he is doing enough to win.
Now the Giants will have a decision to make after this season on if they want to re-sign Jones or not.
He has not looked like a franchise QB through the first three years of his career, but he is playing better under Brian Daboll.
Maybe all he needs is the right coaching, which he now has.
The best season of Jones’ career was his rookie season when he threw 24 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.
He also had a career-high 3,027 passing yards that year.
But, the 25-year-old lacks the elite traits that other QBs have.
The only chance New York has to win with him is with a great running game and defense.
Both of which they have in 2022.
Saquon Barkley is second in the NFL in rushing yards with 616.
Also, the Giants’ defense is allowing only 18.8 points per game.
If they continue to succeed in those two areas then the Giants have a chance to make some noise this season.
The Daboll-Jones combo has gotten off to a good start in New York.
Jones looks to keep the win streak alive in Week 7 when the Giants travel to Jacksonville.
