Giants’ Daniel Jones picks Dak Prescott’s brain on new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett
Daniel Jones will have a new offensive coordinator in his second season with the New York Giants and he wants to make sure he’s well prepared. While in Miami for the Super Bowl, Jones picked Dak Prescott’s brain on new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
“I actually met Dak — well, I’ve seen him on the field — met him for the first time down here and talked to him a little bit,” Jones said today via the Giants’ official site. “Everyone who has worked with Coach Garrett speaks very highly of him and I think Dak was certainly the same way. Guys respect him and it seems like he’s done a lot for a lot of peoples’ careers, so I’m excited to work with him.”
For Jones, the young Giants signal-caller will have to learn a new offense for the second straight season. Luckily for him, he was able to speak to someone who’s had a few years of experience in Garrett’s offense.
In his rookie campaign, Jones flashed some promise as he threw for 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. Despite being the No. 6 overall pick in last year’s draft, Jones actually exceeded expectations in 2019.
Even though this season was mostly a success for Daniel Jones, there’s still room for improvement moving forward. It will be up to Jason Garrett and Jones to get on the same page next season. In an attempt to avoid any struggles, the 22-year-old quarterback is doing everything he can to be successful in 2020.
