>Is there a team that would’ve paid even $120mil / 4 for him?

You're asking the wrong question, which you already answered by saying you're negotiating against yourselves. The real question is, who were the Giants going to sign instead? There is no way the media and fans let NYG get away with signing any other FA QB to a playoff team on the rise.

This contract isn't as bad as it sounds. They can still draft his replacement in a later round and be ready in 2-3 years. If you look at the QBs making less than 40m, the only players I would pick over Jones are due for even bigger paydays and their teams aren't letting them go.

Jones is their only option and he is now married to Daboll. If the NYG suck next year or the year after, you move on from both and let your new coach draft his guy. If they succeed, then you don't care about the money.

With the absolute clown show that the Giants have had at the coaching position... between McAdoo and Shurmur and Judge (and coordinators like Jason Garrett!?!?) ... given Daboll's success and winning coach of the year and all that, do you really think there is any chance they'd move on from here in the next 1-2 years?

No, because I think they will be good enough with Daboll and Jones. I think there are a lot of people dogging Jones and this contract and this is the silver lining if they really believe the contract is as bad as they think. All this talk about wasting money on Jones, but the real problems are overpaying a RB, the wasted money on Golladay, and lack of receiving weapons.
