Giants Re-Sign QB Josh Johnson

The Giants are re-signing quarterback Josh Johnson, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (on Twitter). It’s a two-year deal, according to his agent.Josh Johnson (vertical)

Johnson, 31 in May, has bounced around since leaving the Buccaneers in 2011. Since 2012, Johnson has spent time with the Ravens, Browns, Bengals, 49ers, Colts, Bills, Jets, and Giants. The last time he took the field was in 2013, when he compiled 20 rushing yards on seven carries for Cincinnati. His last NFL start came in 2011 with the Bucs.

Johnson, for now, will occupy the second QB spot on the Giants’ depth chart. Given Eli Manning‘s major struggles last season, I would expect the Giants to seek out a higher-quality QB2 for 2017.

      Backup man. Backup. (To be fair though, Elis accuracy needs to get better)

      Eli was awful when kept clean as well.

        His receivers didn’t help him either.

    Eli suffered Major Struggles last Year????
    Sounds like Zach Links has been into the Irish Green Brew a little too early and hard today.
    Eli has always not been the most accurate with his throws, which is why his receivers must go to the ball.
    I also strongly disagree with the comment “major struggles”.

    Time to pick a qb who will be the replacement. Geno and Josh
    Are not the solution.
