Giants waive Rhett Bomar

One day after acquiring a big upgrade at the backup quarterback position, the Giants have waived the player who held it ever so briefly this preseason.

Rhett Bomar, elevated to second on the depth chart when Jim Sorgi was placed on injured reserve on August 31, fell back to third when Sage Rosenfels was added via trade on September 3. On September 4, Bomar is out of a job altogether.
Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger had the news first.
Bomar has NFL-caliber physical tools, but accuracy has never been his strong suit.  The Giants will probably hope to develop that part of Bomar’s game on the practice squad.
Our guess?  He makes it through waivers unscathed.
UPDATE: Garafolo passes along two more Giants cuts to add to the lengthening list.  They are fullback Jerome Johnson and offensive lineman Jacob Bender.

    Hope this guy gets a chance somewhere– I think he can play…and I really know what I’m talking about.

    He’ll catch on with another team, kids got talent.

    They will soon realize that kid is better than Sage.

    Bomar’s not making it through to waivers.

    They also know (like the rest of league) that either Skelton or Hall (probably Hall) is going to be exposed, and have that in their back pocket.

    I wonder if that Oklahoma City car dealership that paid him for not working is hiring?

    Kids needs to learn NFL receivers are not 11 feet tall. Once he does that he’ll be good.

    The kid is pretty good at running the offense. Almost no mental errors, made good adjustments at the line, didn’t throw into coverage, and look confident the whole time. His fatal flaw is he throws high and sometimes throws side arm, which is more accurate but it gets batted down at the line.

    it is obvious that very few people on this site actually know anything about spotting talent. the kid is a MAJOR league project – he is wildly inaccurate and also sidearms his throws. he might make a serviceable number three; possibly a backup; but has absolutely zero chance of ever being an every down nfl qb. don’t take my word for it – read actual scouting reports from this summer.
