Former New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate explains why he feels bad for quarterback Daniel Jones.
The have been among the most dysfunctionally run franchises in the NFL recently under general manager Dave Gettleman. He drafted quarterback Daniel Jones in 2019 with the sixth-overall pick, and did not give him much help in terms of coaching and a competent offensive line.
Gettleman is gone, and Joe Schoen has entered as the new general manager, who made the decision to not pick up Jones' fifth-year option, meaning he is set to become a free agent at the end of next season.
Jones' former wide receiver, Golden Tate, spoke with and expressed how he feels bad for the fourth-year signal-caller.
"I honestly feel bad for Daniel," Tate told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday. "He was drafted into a rebuilding organization for one, had Pat Shurmur for a year and then got Joe Judge for two years, now another head coach and another rebuild going into his fourth season. He hasn't had Saquon [Barkley], myself, [Kenny] Golladay, Sterling [Shepard] – no one is ever on the field at the same time. And then on top of that, he had [Jason] Garrett [as his offensive coordinator] and that probably didn't help much.
