The Giants have exercised the 2020 option on Tanney's contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports. After serving as the No. 3 quarterback last season, Tanney may get an opportunity to compete for the No. 2 job in 2020. He's 32 years old and has zero NFL starts to his name, so it won't come as any surprise if the Giants sign a superior veteran to put behind Daniel Jones.
The Giants signed Tanney to the 53-man roster Friday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports. Tanney was released by the Giants ahead of Thursday's loss to the Patriots in order to make room for Austin Walter on the roster. The team has now reversed that transaction, waiving Walter to bring back Tanney. The 31-year-old quarterback will resume working as the No. 3 option in New York.
The Giants released Tanney on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Tanney was cut to make room for running back Austin Walter on the active roster. The 31-year-old quarterback didn't see any game action during his tenure with New York, and he'll now look to earn a depth role with another club.
Tanney re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Tanney did not see any game action during 2018, his first season with the Giants. With Eli Manning expected to be retained and the possibility of another QB being brought in via the draft or free agency, Tanney will compete with 2018 fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta for a backup or third-string role.
Tanney will work as the No. 2 quarterback in Sunday's game versus the Titans, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports. Tanney has been a healthy inactive for every game this season and will finally get a chance to suit up with Kyle Lauletta sitting out. With the game out of hand in Week 14, Lauletta was put in but didn't complete any of his five passing attempts and threw an interception. Tanney will likely only see the field if the Giants have a substantial lead again.
