If there were questions about second-year quarterback Ryan Nassib’s future with the New York Giants, it appears they could all have answers by the end of the summer.
According to quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf (via The Star-Ledger’s Conor Orr), Nassib will take the majority of the second-team reps during training camp.
Nassib, a fourth-round pick a season ago, did not play a single snap during the 2013 regular season and played scarcely during the preseason. However, with a full season under his belt, the Giants expect to see more from their young gunslinger.
He will be competing with veteran Curtis Painter for the backup job behind incumbent starter Eli Manning. Painter was the Giants’ backup all of last season and appeared in three games, completing 8 of 16 passes for 57 yards and two interceptions.
In four seasons at Syracuse (three as the starter), Nassib threw for 9,190 yards with 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. He was one of the top-ranked quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft class and was the fifth quarterback taken overall.
