Daniel Jones was conceived in Charlotte, North Carolina, on May 27, 1997. He plays quarterback in the National Football League.

He is the oldest child of Becca and Steve Jones. His siblings include an older sister, Becca, who played field hockey at Davidson College, a younger sister, Ruthie, who plays soccer at Duke, and a younger brother, Bates, who plays basketball at Davidson College.

When a student at Charlotte Latin School in North Carolina, Jones excelled as a quarterback, throwing for almost 7,000 yards and 98 touchdowns.

After guiding his team to the state championship game as a junior, he received a nomination for the second team all-state that year.

He played varsity basketball for three seasons and served as a co-captain of his squad.

Despite having great numbers, Daniel was rarely recruited after high school. He had made a commitment to play for Princeton University initially before accepting a scholarship offer from Duke University.

Why Did Daniel Jones Switch Agents?

The 25-year-old quarterback is switching agents as he starts talks with the Giants about a long-term contract. After being selected sixth overall in the 2019 draft, Jones had been represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), but is currently anticipated to join Athletes First.

It is not clear why he is changing agents but there are two schools of thought as to why this is happening. Jones is either changing agents because he was ready to sign an agreement that was less favorable to CAA than CAA would have approved, or because he demanded a higher fee than CAA was willing to agree to.
