The New York Giants are trying to beat clock when it comes to locking up quarterback Daniel Jones to a long term deal.

According to NFL’s Ian Rapoport discussions between the Giants and Jones’ party got a little “tense” as the two sides continued to negotiate deep into the night. Jones has requested a deal north of $45 million a year.

If the Giants do not come to terms on a long term deal with Jones, the Giants could slap the franchise tag on him, which will pay Jones over $32 million this season.

As for Saquon Barkley that is another story. Barkley is set to be a free agent. There has been question whether they would franchise tag Barkley or let him walk via free agency. Facts are the Giants main focus via long term deals has been Daniel Jones.
