Jones likely receives a second-round tender, which would cost the Giants $2.91 million, per Schwartz. Teams have until March 14 to tender their restricted free agents.
The Giants are ready to move on from center Weston Richburg, according to Schwartz. Richburg, a second-round pick in 2014, is set to become a free agent.
Jones started one game at left guard but played the final 12 games at center after doctors diagnosed Richburg with a concussion. The Giants eventually placed Richburg on injured reserve.
