Ex-Giants CB Janoris Jenkins Takes Shot At Team For Drafting Daniel Jones During MNF Loss

New York Giants fans are slowly losing confidence over quarterback Daniel Jones.

Former Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins – now with the New Orleans Saints – threw some shade at his former team and “Danny Dimes” while watching the Monday night game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jones didn’t have the best night, missing a wide-open receiver and throwing a pick. The second-year quarterback ended the night with 256 yards, 2 TDs, and 2 INTs.

Jenkins posted a photo of Daniel Jones on social media and added the commentary: “A duke QB over Lamar. N wonder y they can’t win.. LMMFAO.”

Jenkins is referring to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, a player who wasn’t even in Jones’s draft class. The Giants took Saquon Barkley with their first pick in the 2018 draft.

The argument could be made that the Giants needed a quarterback over a running back, but as a Giants fan, I’d argue the Giants need everything at every draft, so picking Barkley wasn’t a bad idea.

Still, Jones is 4-16 as a starter, and the pick is looking more foolish by the week.

Jenkins played for Giants from 2016-2019 but was cut by the team after using a racial slur against a fan on Twitter.
