Giants Twitter Account: Jones' Size this year vs. last year

Dave in Hoboken : 8/6/2020 2:23 pm
The official Giants Twitter account posted this pic today. It's a side by side comparison of Jones today vs. what he looked like last year at this time in terms of his new build. We've all heard that Jones has added muscle and gotten bigger. But he looks bigger than I expected in this pic. The first pic is this year, the second pic is last year:

Link to the tweet from the Giants twitter account is below.

Forearms are certainly

Looks like he’s been doing leg

workouts with Barkley.
He looks so much bigger!

Throw up some numbers, bodyfat, weight, something instead of a zoomed in picture.

No doubt DJ has a squat rack wherever it was he was working out this offseason.

Or put your recs specs on.
More importantly, he has two hands on the ball in the pic this year

and didn’t last year.
Check out Phil Simms in his early years

Gosh he was thin. Glad to see Jones hitting the weights.
TommyWiseau : 8/6/2020 3:35 pm : link
thing we know about this kid is he is not going to be outworked. He puts in the time

Was thinking the exact same thing. Look at Simms in 1980....not the same build at all.

Of course Simms got super serious in the weight room after all his injuries.

I thought this from previous photos posted at Giants .com.

It's as if Jones knew he'd have a rookie or two starting on his OL this year.

He said he wanted to be

prepared to take the pounding of a full season. This is the result.

If Jones cuts the fumbles in half, he’s immediately a top 16 NFL QB.
I think a significant portion of his fumbles were from just not being  
Zeke's Alibi : 8/6/2020 7:48 pm : link
strong enough. He does a fairly good job of keeping two hands on the ball, but you can tell a bunch of fumbles the ball barely squirted out. This should help, especially with his attitude in the pocket, pressure doesn't exist, which is good and bad.
I am really looking forward to hearing what Jason Garrett has to say  
Spider56 : 8/6/2020 7:55 pm : link
about Jones. I think these guys are going to do great things together.
His legs are jacked  
Canton : 8/6/2020 8:23 pm : link
Saquon definitely gave him some tips in the weight room .
He makes Fackrell  
BNY Giants Club : 8/6/2020 10:04 pm : link
Look like Bin Victor
He looks like he's been hanging out with Weatherford

CT Charlie : 8/6/2020 10:47 pm : link
but in the new picture: a) he is squatting much lower than in the old one, stressing the muscles more, and b) because of the angles of the photos, there's some visual foreshortening, which contributes to the wide look. Finally, in the old photo he has a pretty big "stack" above his knee, even though he's quite relaxed.
This is what DJ said himself yesterday. Why would you dispute it?

Daniel Jones has put on 8-9 pounds of muscle. Checking in at 229 pounds. Thinks this is "strong as I've been" and it will help him in the pocket.
Actually, he said he gained 8 to 9 pounds. Up from 220 last year.  
Marty in Albany : 8/7/2020 10:19 am : link
He didn't say it was 9 pounds of muscle.

I'm guessing that if he has also reduced his body fat, he may have added even more than 9 pounds of muscle.
I just cut and pasted exact sentence from Raanan's

Hopefully his build has no adverse impact on  
ColHowPepper : 8/7/2020 8:49 pm : link
would increased muscle result in increased arm strength?  
CMicks3110 : 8/7/2020 9:04 pm : link
He said he is 8 lbs heavier  
EricJ : 8/7/2020 9:45 pm : link
this year vs last year
He looks fit and strong  
Torrag : 8/7/2020 9:48 pm : link
Now if he can make the same mental progress as he has with his body we really have a player.
