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 signed with the Jaguars on Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
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's projected to slot in 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.
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.
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.
Nassib (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.
Nassib has been bothered by a sore elbow for much of the past two months, and with the quarterback apparently not showing enough improvement, he'll be shut down for the final two weeks of the season. Josh Johnson will continue to serve as the backup to starting quarterback Eli Manning the rest of the way.
Nassib is inactive Sunday due to an elbow injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.
Nassib has been dealing with the elbow aliment on and off throughout the season, and it caused him to sit out games earlier in the year as well. Josh Johnson will serve as the Giants' immediate backup to Eli Manning with Nassib on the sideline.
Nassib (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.TV reports.
Nassib has been dealing with elbow soreness, and after being unable to participate in pregame warmups, the team will make him inactive for the afternoon matchup. As a result, Josh Johnson, who hasn't completed a pass since 2011, will step into the backup quarterback role.
Nassib completed 7 of 15 passes for 75 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Dolphins. He also gained 12 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.
With Eli Manning getting the night off, Nassib received extended action and provided a mixed bag of a performance. Nassib got off to a positive start, leading the Giants on a game-opening touchdown drive but subsequently turning the ball over on three consecutive second-quarter possessions. The third-year signal-caller sandwiched interceptions to Bobby McCain and A.J. Hendy around a fumble on a scramble that was returned by Spencer Paysinger to the Dolphins' five-yard line, setting up a Damien Williams touchdown. The 26-year-old is expected to continue to see extended action throughout the preseason.
Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib finished up Sunday night's 27-0 loss to the Eagles. Although he took two sacks, Nassib completed 4 of 5 passes for 60 yards without a turnover.
He'll go back to the bench for Week 7 at Dallas.
Second-year pro Ryan Nassib is firmly entrenched as the Giants' backup quarterback, reports The Star-Ledger. Nassib has picked up the new offensive system quickly, the paper said.
"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 Giants announced the release of quarterback Josh Freeman on Friday. He was signed in late April.
The move leaves the Giants with two backup passers behind Eli Manning: Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter. Both have a much-improved chance on making the team with Freeman out of the picture.
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.
The Giants want quarterback Ryan Nassib to compete for the No. 2 job, reports ESPN.com. They plan to evaluate him thoroughly in OTAs late this month.
"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.
The Giants drafted quarterback Ryan Nassib in Round 4 last season, and now they are open to trading him, reports the New York Daily News.
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 Ryan Nassib will be off the roster soon?
The Newark Star-Ledger believes the Giants should assess Nassib's value going into the draft considering the lack of great quarterback talent available. A team looking for a quarterback-of-the-future could make an offer.
Nassib had 19 pass attempts during the preseason last August and wasn't active for a single regular-season game.
The Giants have made DE Jason Pierre-Paul, WR Victor Cruz, TE Adrien Robinson, G Brandon Mosley, QB Ryan Nassib, OL Eric Herman and LB Allen Bradford inactive Week 17.
Pierre-Paul is dealing with a shoulder injury, and did not practice all week. Cruz has been held out with a knee issue.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz (knee, concussion) and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) were among the Giants' inactives for Week 16 at Detroit. Other players listed inactive for New York were: Ryan Nassib, Cooper Taylor, Peyton Hillis, Allen Bradford and David Diehl.
Giants quarterback Ryan Nassib, cornerback Corey Webster (ankle), safety Cooper Taylor (hamstring), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), linebacker Allen Bradford, offensive lineman Stephen Goodin and tight end Adrien Robinson were listed as the team's inactives Week 15 vs. Seattle.
