The Jaguars released Nassib on Saturday. Nassib was the third quarterback on the Jaguars' depth chart, rendering him expendable in order to boost depth on the offensive line. He figures to be a prime candidate to land on the team's practice squad. The 27-year-old played just two games with the team.
Nassib (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday for the Jaguars' Week 3 matchup with the Ravens, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports. The Jaguars inked Nassib earlier in the week as a third quarterback, with his connection to coach Doug Marrone from the duo's Syracuse days likely factoring heavily into the signal caller's signing. Nassib could get a look at some point later this season in the event Blake Bortles' inconsistent ways prompt Marrone to go in a different direction under center, but for the time being, it looks like Nassib will be inactive when both Bortles and top backup Chad Henne are healthy.
Nassib was released by the Saints on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Saturday marked the second time Nassib has been cut during the offseason, first by the Giants.
Nassib signed a contract Monday with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After being released by the Giants earlier this offseason, Nassib heads down to New Orleans to compete with Garrett Grayson for a spot behind Drew Brees and Chase Daniel on the depth chart. The former fourth-round selection has only attempted 10 regular-season passes over the past four years with the Giants.
Nassib (elbow) may not have a future in New York, Syracuse.com reports. Nassib struggled during the 2016 preseason and then battled an elbow injury for much of the year, ultimately requiring surgery. It was a rough way to enter unrestricted free agency, and the Giants have since re-signed Josh Johnson and agreed to terms with Geno Smith. It thus appears Nassib, a 2013 fourth-round selection, will head elsewhere after attempting only 10 regular-season passes in his four years with the Giants. He may have to settle for a shot to compete for a No. 2 job.
