The New York Giants have not picked up the fifth-year option for former No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones, per multiple league sources.

Jones is entering the final year of his rookie contract, set to make a base salary of $965,000 with a roster bonus of $3.23 million.

Giants leadership has been vocal about Jones being the team's starting quarterback in 2022, but that could change depending on his play this coming season. If he proves himself as a viable starting option in Year 4, he could cash in with a franchise tag in 2023.

The NFL world took to Twitter to react to this news. "Good move make him prove himself before paying him a bunch of money," one fan wrote. "This is right move for Giants. Give Jones the chip on his shoulder to play his best football yet and allows Giants to take a QB if they want to," another added.

The Giants hold the No. 5 and No. 7 overall picks in tonight's draft. Could the selection of Daniel Jones' replacement be on the horizon?
