Daniel Jones is bulking up

“He will look more cut-up,’’ Anthony Boone told The Post.

Boone, employed by the well-known quarterback training and development company QB Country, has worked extensively this off-season with Jones and has seen the results of extra time hitting the weights. Jones, a statuesque 6-foot-5, weighed 220 pounds as a rookie. He did not actually look skinny; more so thinly-framed.

Daniel Jones 2.0 is closer to 230 pounds. Boone did not see Jones get on a scale recently but estimates he gained as much as eight pounds. Now then, reporting weight gain during the COVID-19 pandemic is about as newsworthy as noting humidity in the summer and wind chill in the winter. For Jones, though, this was part of the plan. He lived back home in Charlotte, N.C. with his parents, two sisters and one brother and obviously was able to elbow in at the dinner table aggressively enough to ingest what he needed to put on the pounds.

“He’s done a good job of putting together a good physique,’’ Boone said. “At the end of the day he wanted to get stronger and get a little more meat on his bones but still maintain being able to run and move around and being on the field the whole time. Not ‘I’ve put on too much weight and I get short-winded now.’ His thing was make sure he could stay mobile, agile and be out on the field the whole time.’’


looking forward to a shirtless pic to compare to Eli.

The added weight has already produced tangible results.

“For one, as a quarterback, being able to take hits a little bit better – you have a little bit more muscle so you’re a little heavier,’’ Boone said. “You put that muscle mass on means you’re looking at a little bit more leg-drive on some throws. More velocity. Or being able to push the ball down the field a little bit further.
I remember how Phil Simms looked in his 1st year.....

And then how he bulked up and became stronger over time.

Phil was quite famously known as the most dedicated weight lifter on the entire Giants squad in his time.

Apparently he was also a very good tennis player, from an Insider source.
Brady did the same thing

Nobody now would say Tom has a weak arm, but that was a large part of the reason he dropped to the Sixth rd.

And he's a good golfer also from an inside source.
