The disagreement comes due to the team signing quarterback Tyrod Taylor during free agency.
People saw this move as a sign of the end for Jones in New York.
However, the big picture that isn’t seen is how the Giants will use Taylor to help Jones grow in New York.
Taylor has a history of backing up quarterbacks in his time in the NFL.
He is a player that can come in when needed and brings experience at the quarterback position.
Taylor has starting experience in the NFL if the Giants need him to take over for Jones.
These things also turn the quarterback position into a competition between Jones and Taylor.
How Taylor Can Make Jones Better At Quarterback
Jones might have a mindset coming into 2022 that he needs to prove himself to the Giants.
The experienced Taylor forces Jones to step up his game for the new season.
He can also learn from Taylor, who is entering his 11th season in the NFL.
The experience Taylor can share with Jones will help him improve on his disappointing 2021 performance.
Jones only passed for 2,428 yards and ten touchdowns with seven interceptions in 11 games during 2021.
Taylor can show Jones the ropes and improve those stats going into 2022.
Giants Need To Use The Draft To Help Protect Jones
With Taylor in New York to light a fire under Jones, he needs help in some key positions.
Defenses sacked Jones 22 times in his 11 games, bringing the average to two sacks per game for Jones.

He needs better protection upfront if he is to have time to make the plays the Giants expect from him.
The Giants have the fifth and seventh picks in the first round of the NFL draft if they wish to help Jones with young talent.
They can use one of those picks to draft offensive lineman Ikem Ekwonu.

If the Giants want to go all-in on protecting Jones, they can pick offensive lineman Charles Cross with their other pick.
Both choices would be a considerable upgrade for the Giants’ front five.
Jones Can Use A Proven Receiver Like Allen Robinson
Allen Robinson would give Jones a veteran receiver used to being the number one guy on offense.
Although he had an off-year due to injury and a lack of stability at quarterback, Robinson has the tools to help Jones in the passing game.
He has multiple years of over 1,000 receiving yards, something Jones needs from a receiver.
With the off-year Robinson had, the Giants might have a chance to pick him up at a value price.
He would also pair up well with Kenny Golladay, the current number one receiver in New York.
However, he didn’t play like a number one receiver as he only had 521 yards and no touchdowns in 14 games last season.
If the Giants sign Robinson and stay healthy, this can give Jones two options.
The move can also take pressure off Golladay, leaving him open for more plays.
