According to NJ.com's Jordan Raanan, Nassib, the 2013 fourth-round pick, took the primary second-team snaps behind Manning in Thursday's workout session. Raanan relays that during one drill Freeman lined up the offense incorrectly and was immediately subbed out, with Painter taking his place.
With Manning appearing back at full-go just seven weeks after ankle surgery, the Giants didn't need the extra arms in camp. Freeman's release paves the way for Nassib to be Manning's backup in 2014.
Freeman, on the other hand, will look for a team hoping to squeeze one last chance out of a once-talented player with a turbulent career.
