New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has defended Daniel Jones from criticism, insisting the quarterback works as hard as anyone.
Jones, who was selected at No. 6 in the 2019 NFL draft, didn’t particularly impress in his first two seasons and many believe Jones isn’t the franchise quarterback the Giants were hoping he would be when they selected him.
However, the Giants aren’t ready to give up Jones yet, giving him another chance as their starting quarterback in 2021.
“That’s someone I can say can challenge me with his work ethic. I have never seen anything like it. It’s Kobe-like, to be completely honest,” Barkley said of Jones.
