Daniel Jones' abilities were questioned by many NFL analysts when the Giants first drafted him, but has since earned the nickname of 'Danny Dimes'
As we inch closer to the NFL preseason slated for next month, there are several young and talented footballers to watch out for – one of them being New York Giants' quarterback Daniel Jones. The 24-year-old sensation has piqued the interest of many football aficionados, with many asking how much he's really worth.
According to Spotrac records, Jones's net worth in 2021 is $23.6 million. The young athlete started playing in his college years at the University of Duke, where he was a part of the Duke Blue Devils from 2016 to 2018. His abilities were questioned by many NFL analysts when the Giants first drafted him, but has since earned the nickname of "Danny Dimes," acing two NFL seasons from 2019-2021 as a valuable Quarterback.
Jones graduated from the Charlotte Latin School in Charlotte North Carolina, where he clocked nearly 7,000 passing yards and 98 touchdowns. Despite his impressive stats, Jones was unranked as a recruit when he came out of high school. He originally committed to Princeton, but eventually joined Duke University to play college football in 2015.
Jones became the starting QB in his sophomore season at Duke in 2016, thereby getting a chance to show his prowess after QB Thomas Sirk suffered a season-ending injury. Jones did not disappoint. He made starts in all 12 games and went on to complete 270 of 430 passes for 2,836 YDs, 16 TDs, and 9 INTs, according to Sports404.
Jones subsequently completed 230 of 413 passes for 2,439 YDs, 14 TDs, and 11 INTs in his 2017 junior season. He also won the MVP of the 2017 Quick Lane Bowl against Northern Illinois, after successfully completing 27-of-40 passes for 252 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. The match also saw him complete 86 rushing yards from sixteen carries for a single touchdown.
The following year, Jones won the MVP in the 2018 Independence Bowl as a senior. He threw 30–41 with 423 passing yards and five touchdowns in a 56–27 victory over Temple Owls. In 2019, he played in the Senior Bowl for the North team and was crowned MVP for that bout as well, going 8-of-11 with 115 passing yards and 1 touchdown. Jones eventually became the Giants' 6th pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
What is Daniel Jones's net worth?
This year, Jones's net worth has been estimated to be around $23.6 million, earnings that mainly come from his NFL contracts, salary, and endorsements.
In his four-year contract with the New York Giants, Jones was guaranteed a staggering $25,664,056 with a $16,684,768 signing bonus and an average annual salary of $6,416,014. This year, Jones will earn a base salary of $850,000 and a roster bonus of $2,168,096. In the meanwhile, his team will be carrying a cap hit of $7,189,288 and a dead cap value of $15,570,124, according to Spotroc.
Jones began his first NFL training camp as a substitute to Giants QB Eli Manning. The coaching staff wanted to keep Jones ready to play if the first team was injured, but the determined athlete rose to the occasion and ended up becoming one of the Giants' top franchise players. Aside from his NFL contract, Jones also signed a deal with Nike in 2019. If his performances continue to be consistent, the star QB is sure to become an attractive face for several big brands.
