"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 move leaves the Giants with two backup passers behind Eli Manning:
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.
"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.
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.
Now that the Giants have signed Josh Freeman to a contract, does it mean that second-year quarterback
The Newark Star-Ledger believes the
Nassib had 19 pass attempts during the preseason last August and wasn't active for a single regular-season game.
