Denver Broncos

Russell Wilson's time in the Mile High City looks like it'll be ending based on how head coach Sean Payton talks about the quarterback situation for the team. If that's the case, they'll be looking for a cheaper option to replace the former Seahawk, and Jones wouldn't cost them much to trade for.

Because they'll be giving up a lot in dead money to rid themselves of Wilson in one way or another, bringing in a young player like Jones on the last year of his rookie contract would be almost like drafting a rookie quarterback. He won't be in the market for a massive contract or anything near it, given his track record to this point.

Surrounding him with the right talent, which would already happen by reuniting Jones with his former college teammate Jerry Jeudy, would do wonders for his career. We saw what he was capable of during his rookie year, and with the right coaching, he could get back to that player or even better.

New York Giants

For some reason, the Giants decided they would go all-in on Daniel Jones when they signed him to a four-year extension early last year. But it's been reported that they are not closing the door on bringing in another quarterback to compete for the starting position, despite how much money they'll owe Jones.

Maybe Mac isn't the most exciting candidate for a team looking for an immediate upgrade at the position, but he put together a better season in his rookie year than Daniel has during his entire career so far. So, the risk could be worth the reward for New York.

The Giants are already in a sticky situation with Daniel returning to the field for the 2024 season after suffering a neck injury and tearing his ACL, ending his 2023 campaign. Both are not easy for any player to return from, and coupling that with his underwhelming production, all signs point to their need to move on already.

They made sure to work in and out in Daniel's contract in 2025, so if they brought in another quarterback like Mac, sitting Daniel for the season wouldn't hurt their pocketbook too much.
