Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib finished up Sunday night's 27-0 loss to the Eagles. Although he took two sacks, Nassib completed 4 of 5 passes for 60 yards without a turnover. He'll go back to the bench for Week 7 at Dallas.
Second-year pro Ryan Nassib is firmly entrenched as the Giants' backup quarterback, reports The Star-Ledger. Nassib has picked up the new offensive system quickly, the paper said. "Really smart," Danny Langsdorf, the team's new quarterbacks coach, told the paper. "I think he's done a great job, especially in our no-huddle periods of just being able to get guys lined up, whether we're in a two-minute situation or whatever situation we've been in he's done a great job of just getting us in a correct formation, getting us lined up. "He's just got to keep working on executing, whether it's a throw or timing with the receivers, he's just got to continue to work with those guys but he's been very good to this point in terms of studying and learning."
The Giants announced the release of quarterback Josh Freeman on Friday. He was signed in late April. The move leaves the Giants with two backup passers behind Eli Manning: Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter. Both have a much-improved chance on making the team with Freeman out of the picture. Freeman was cut early into the 2013 season by the Buccaneers after leading them to an 0-3 start. He was signed by the Vikings, only to play in just one game for them. He totaled 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions last year.
The Giants want quarterback Ryan Nassib to compete for the No. 2 job, reports ESPN.com. They plan to evaluate him thoroughly in OTAs late this month. "We like Nassib," GM Jerry Reese said of last year's fourth-round pick. "He hasn't really had a chance to do a lot for us, so we're going to take a real good look at him in the spring, but we think he's still a good player. He hasn't had a chance to really play yet, so he's going to get a lot of work this spring, and obviously he'll get a lot of work in the preseason, along with Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman." Nassib was inactive for all 16 games last year.
The Giants drafted quarterback Ryan Nassib in Round 4 last season, and now they are open to trading him, reports the New York Daily News. Giants general manager Jerry Reese said Thursday when asked about trading Nassib during the draft, "we keep all of our options open." The Giants have added Josh Freeman and Rusty Smith this offseason, along with Curtis Painter, as backups to Eli Manning.
