Says Jones is the starter

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-15

Lock said Friday that he's been told Daniel Jones (knee) is the Giants' starting quarterback, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports.

The question likely was asked in response to Seahawks GM John Schneider saying Thursday that he wanted to re-sign Lock but lost out to the Giants because they offered the opportunity to compete for a starting job. Lock seems to be suggesting otherwise, though Jones' recovery from an ACL tear suffered Nov. 5 could make things interesting. Jones' contract is another factor, with a $23 million injury guarantee for 2025 potentially creating a mid/late-season situation like the one we saw in Denver with Russell Wilson in 2023 (Wilson was benched to ensure he'd stay healthy and reduce the dead-cap charge for releasing him in the offseason).

In the mix for starting job?

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-15

Seahawks GM John Schneider said Thursday that he wanted to re-sign Lock but wasn't able to because the Giants sold him on an opportunity to compete for a starting job, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Schneider revealed the interesting bit of information on The Wyman and Bob Show (710 Seattle Sports) shortly after trading for former Commanders QB Sam Howell. Reports suggest Lock signed with the Giants for backup money -- a one-year, $5 million contract, per ESPN -- but he may nonetheless have a chance to start with Daniel Jones (knee) coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged a career-worst 5.7 yards per pass attempt before suffering an ACL tear. Both quarterbacks are 2019 draft picks entering their age-27 campaigns, and while Jones has a full guarantee for his $36 million in compensation this year, the only guarantees thereafter are for injuries. Even if Jones ends up starting for most of the season, it could turn into a 2023 Russell Wilson situation where he's benched to avoid those injury guarantees and ensure the team can move on from him in the offseason. The various factors, including Jones' rehab from knee surgery, give Lock a good chance to play at some point this season, though things would get more complicated if the Giants bring in a rookie QB on Day 1 or 2 of the upcoming NFL Draft.

Joining Giants

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-12

Lock and the Giants have reached agreement on a contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lock joins a quarterback room with Daniel Jones (knee), Tommy DeVito and Jacob Eason, after former Giant Tyrod Taylor reached an agreement with the Jets on Monday. It's a situation that strongly favors Lock for the No. 2 QB job, though the Giants may not be done making additions/subtractions to the group, with the upcoming NFL Draft offering potential to add a long-term replacement for Jones (who is rehabbing an ACL tear). Lock made four appearances for Seattle in 2023, including two starts, completing 48 of 76 passes (63.2) for 543 yards (7.1 YPA), three touchdowns and three interceptions. He never panned out as a starter in Denver after going in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, but Lock at least looks like the part of a high-end backup after his moderately successful cameo with the Seahawks last year.

Solid in limited action

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-29

Lock completed 48 of 76 passes for 543 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions across four games in the 2023 season. He also rushed five times for 14 yards.

Lock started two games, finishing with a 1-1 record after a thrilling win over the Eagles in Week 15. The 27-year-old quarterback recorded 7.1 YPA while 10 of his 76 passes went for 20-plus yards. Lock certainly appears to be one of the top backups in the league, but his chances of being a starter in 2024 are slim, especially with a solid quarterback class coming in. Nevertheless, he'll be a free agent in March and could seek a better chance to start elsewhere, as Geno Smith's contract all but guarantees he's the starter in Seattle to begin next season.

Returning to backup role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-20

Lock's teammate Geno Smith (groin) will return to full practice participation Wednesday, Brady Henderson of reports.

Lock played reasonably well during Smith's two-week absence, but coach Pete Carroll already confirmed that Smith will return to the starting role once he's healthy. With Smith apparently now ready, Lock will be the backup quarterback this Sunday at Tennessee.

Leads team to victory on MNF

Lock completed 22 of 33 pass attempts for 208 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 20-17 win over Philadelphia.

Lock got the nod under center Monday even though Geno Smith (groin) was deemed healthy enough start pregame. This effectively signals a change at quarterback by head coach Pete Carroll, a change that is likely to stick after Lock led the Seahawks to victory over the now 10-4 Eagles. The former Bronco completed two-thirds of his passes without committing a turnover in a tough defensive matchup. Barring a shocking announcement, Lock figures to continue starting for Seattle when the club visits Tennessee on Sunday.

Likely starting again Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Lock is in line to start Monday's contest against the Eagles, even with Geno Smith (groin) being deemed active by the Seahawks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith was able to complete a pregame workout as he tested out his balky groin, but after Seattle posted its list of Week 15 inactives that didn't include his name, he didn't make an appearance during warmups. Lock proceeded to work with the team's first-team offense, with Sean Mannion mixing in behind him. Assuming he gets the nod after Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, Lock will get his second start in a row in place of Smith.

Working with first-team offense pregame

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Lock was spotted warming up with the Seahawks' first-team offense ahead of Monday's game versus the Eagles, despite Geno Smith (groin) being active, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

In fact, Smith hasn't been seen on the field during pregame warmups since completing an earlier workout in which he looked like his normal self. The Seahawks have declined to name a starting quarterback with less than 30 minutes to go before Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but Lock may be the favorite to do so over Smith considering the current situation.

Late turnovers doom upset bid

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Lock completed 22 of 31 pass attempts for 269 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 28-16 loss to the 49ers.

Lock got the nod under center after starter Geno Smith (groin) was officially ruled out after attempting to warm up unsuccessfully prior to Sunday's kickoff. The backup performed admirably in a pinch, especially considering the difficulty of opponent he was asked to start against. Lock actually had the Seahawks within striking distance of the NFC's new No. 1 seed to begin the fourth quarter, but he promptly threw two interceptions and Seattle wore its seventh loss of the season. Given the fact that Smith had a shot to play Sunday, there is a good chance Lock resumes his backup role against the Eagles next Monday.
