Giants’ Daniel Jones is already back at work at Duke
New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has begun preparation for his sophomore season — not with Duke University, but at Duke University.
Jones was putting in some work at his alma mater Duke University on Thursday, working out with fellow Duke alum Jamison Crowder as well as Giants teammates Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard:

No doubt, Jones is hoping to prove he has what it takes as Eli Manning’s successor in New York.
Jones burst onto the scene in his first NFL start, throwing for 336 yards and a pair of touchdowns while also rushing for the game-winning score in a Week 3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But the rest of the year was a struggle. Jones threw 12 interceptions an coughed up the pigskin more than anyone else in the NFL, finishing the season with 18 fumbles. He also averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt.
The Giants will likely hope to bolster the offensive line and get running back Saquon Barkley more involved in the passing game in an effort to take the pressure off Jones.
Nevertheless, it should be encouraging to Giants fans to see the Daniel Jones so eager to get back to work.
