For now, it seems like they'll settle for a developmental backup to compete for a spot behind the NFL's iron man quarterback.
"We thought he had the best arm in the draft this year," Giants general manager Jerry Reese told reporters. He added: "He has a high ceiling that can develop behind (Eli Manning)."
Of late, the Giants have discussed Manning being on the "back nine" of his career. That has led to a fairly expedited search for a potential replacement. This is not unforeseen territory, though. The Giants have, through the years, also experimented with developmental prospects like Ryan Nassib and Rhett Bomar. None have been able to stick on the roster for long.
