An off-season trade that won’t happen but should …

DJ to the Pats … straight up for Mac Jones. Both QBs are ‘damaged’ in their current environments and both need a change and a second, maybe last shot at redemption. Mac Jones was a freshman at Alabama in 2017 when Dabs was the OC.

This would not preclude taking a QB in this years draft by either team …at worst, you’d have 2 backups with NFL starting experience, a situation which would be very unlikely with their current teams.
Mac Jones

throwing in the Meadowlands would be rather funny to watch as he can barely complete passes now.

Get a shittier QB and 69 mil in dead money? Are you kidding?
I don't see NE wanting to take on DJ's contract.  
Tom in NY : 11/15/2023 11:22 am : link
While Daboll coached Mac at Alabama, are we sure he even liked him as a QB?
Why would NE take on DJ's salary?

BTW, I'd rather have DJ than Mac Jones.

are headed for backup QB spots. No one's taking DJ's salary etc especially after the ACL.
Wow! Thank goodness you are not the person making decisions

for the Giants! I have see so much insanity here lately but this has got to be the worst idea ever!

Wouldn't shock me if Jones retires after next season.

Injuries, lots of money...
Why in the world would we want Mac Jones?

He’s Daniel Jones without the speed.

I don't see D. Jones retiring. His latest injury doesn't involve his head or neck. He's also to his credit a ferocious competitor. He's going to want to prove that he can still play in the NFL and compete to be a starting QB. I wish him well on his next team.

Mac is MUCH less athletic that DJ...with a weaker arm.

Jones for Jones trade?

Only on BBI would this be talked about.
But why?  
kdog77 : 11/15/2023 12:19 pm : link
Mac Jones is terrible and will only have 1 year left on rookie deal before Giants would have to make decision to exercise rookie option. They could just pick a QB in the draft and get 4 years of cost control as opposed to 1.
Seems the NFL

That’s the kind of thinking

Pre-ACL I think the Pats would have considered taking on Jones if the Giants ate a lot of the money and included a pick.

With the ACL no one is taking on the liability of his 2025 injury guarantee.
I'd still take Daniel Jones over Mac Jones even  
barens : 11/15/2023 3:26 pm : link
with the ACL. At least New England has a pretty good offensive line, what is Mac Jones' excuse?

Do very strange things to peoples' brains.

What happens next? We trade Mac Jones to the Chiefs straight up for Mahomes?
Geez … it was pre coffee this am …

All you had to say it won’t happen because it’s a stupid idea…. But I bet a lot of Lions and Rams fans thought Stafford / Goff was dumb too. Cheers.
Why don't you say  
uconngiant : 11/15/2023 6:37 pm : link
trade him for Malik Willis since some on here called him the best quarterback in the draft and yet he is third string
Mac Jones

is the worst QB on an NFL roster, currently.
