Nassib spent training camp with the Saints before being released prior to the start of the regular season. With starter Blake Bortles struggling through the first two weeks of the season, the Jaguars have likely brought in Nassib to add some pressure to Bortles. He'll likely be slotted as the No. 3 quarterback behind Chad Henne.
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. He lost out on the third quarterback role behind Drew Brees and Chase Daniel to Garrett Grayson.
After being released by the Giants earlier this offseason, Nassib heads down to New Orleans to compete with Chase Daniels and Garrett Grayson for a spot behind Drew Brees 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 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.
Nassib will have surgery on his elbow in the near future, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Nassib contended with elbow soreness at various points in the season, and with two games remaining, the Giants will look toward to future and a likely playoff berth. No matter if that goal is realized, Nassib will yield backup QB duties to Josh Johnson moving forward.
