NFC East Notes: Nassib, McKelvin, Doctson

Since being selected in the fourth round of the 2013 draft, quarterback Ryan Nassib hasn’t made a single start for the Giants, and given that Eli Manning has remained remarkably healthy, Nassib has only managed 10 pass attempts during his career, all coming in garbage time. Thus, as Jordan Raanan of explains, the Giants can’t be completely sure of what they have in Nassib as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. Though Nassib has reportedly grown through his practice reps over the past several seasons, New York isn’t going to invest in another quarterback while Manning has four years left on his deal. Signal-callers always draw interest on the open market, but whether another club will trust a QB with virtually no regular season experience like Nassib is an open question.

Here’s more from the NFC East…

  1. Daniel

    Barner is taking reps with the first team offence. #4 back???

      He’s at most #3 behind Mathews and Sproles

  2. On the Nassib topic, have the Giants really been fighting for a playoff spot up until the last week the past three years? If so then I could understand him not getting any reps, but if there was a season where the Giants were out of the playoffs by Week 17, Nassib should’ve gotten the start to see what he can do (and also to rest Eli since there’d be no point in him playing a meaningless game).

      Nassib rated highly in college should have seen the field somehow in these years. Last year I half joked but wouldn’t have ruled out the Giants trade Eli for picks and or players -and not offer the extension. Roll in Nassib and be Eli 2.0 for the next decade, be a seamless approach.
