It seems Davis Webb may very well see some enjoying time.
The Giants will deactivate Geno Smith this week and make Webb the backup for Sunday’s season finale in opposition to Washington, Steve Spagnuolo mentioned Wednesday.
The Giants have mentioned Eli Manning will begin Week 17, however it’s the primary recreation Webb will probably be lively for, which suggests he’ll play.
Previous to the firings of head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese, the Giants had deliberate to guage the opposite quarterbacks beginning with Geno Smith and finally Webb. After Smith performed in a Week 13 loss to the Raiders, McAdoo and Reese have been fired and the plan was seemingly deserted as Manning has performed the final three video games.
The Giants are at the moment poised to have the second-overall choose within the draft and will doubtlessly land UCLA’s Josh Rosen or USC’s Sam Darnold, however many imagine they should see what they’ve in Webb earlier than drafting a brand new franchise quarterback.
