Giants' Josh Johnson: Inks two-year deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a two-year contract with the Giants on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Giants could look to address their quarterback depth in the 2017 NFL Draft, but as things currently stand, Johnson looks in line to serve as Eli Manning's top backup. The 30-year-old Johnson brings a mobility to the position that Manning lacks, but he hasn't logged a snap in a regular-season game since the 2013 season. Fortunately for the Giants, Manning is about as durable as it gets, so Johnson's lack of reps the last few seasons shouldn't be a major issue.

Giants' Josh Johnson: Backing up Eli Manning on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will serve as the backup to starter Eli Manning on Sunday against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.TV reports.

Johnson will move up the depth chart in the absence of Ryan Nassib, who is inactive Sunday due to elbow soreness. The 30-year-old has yet to take a snap this season, and hasn't completed a pass in the NFL since the 2011 season with Tampa Bay.

Giants' Josh Johnson: Inactive for Week 2 versus Saints
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 matchup versus the Saints, the team's official site reports.

The veteran backup is expected to carry this same status the majority of the season, barring injury to either Eli Manning or top backup Ryan Nassib.

Giants' Josh Johnson: Signed with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson signed with the Giants on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Johnson, who was released by the Ravens this weekend, will provide a veteran presence at quarterback behind Eli Manning and young backup Ryan Nassib. Barring any extraordinary circumstance, Johnson likely won't see the field in 2016, but he gives the team some needed insurance at the position.
