Ryan Nassib signs with Giants

Ryan Nassib AP

There are no more players drafted after the first round in April still looking for a contract.

The last man standing on that front was quarterback Ryan Nassib, but he was crossed off the list Thursday when the fourth-round pick agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Giants. Nassib signed on the same day as his college teammate and Giants first-round pick Justin Pugh.

Pugh, an offensive tackle, could conceivably find himself blocking for Nassib again as a professional, although the Giants surely hope that Nassib sees snaps for them at quarterback as much as they hope to receive an email with a photo attached from Carlos Danger. If all goes according to plan, Nassib will spend his rookie year learning and then progress over the next few preseasons into a player that the Giants can flip for another draft pick since they’ll be keeping Eli Manning in the starting job as long as possible.

That’s a bit of a step down for a player who some thought would go much earlier in the draft than he wound up going, but there’s not much to do about that now except try to prove people wrong in whatever opportunities Nassib might get in the next few years.

    At least he didn’t throw a tantrum when his draft stock slipped. Looking at you Geno Smith !

    Good. Watch and learn so you’re ready when your number is called, whenever that may be.

    On a side note, Eli and Tom Coughlin has received a ton of heat over the years from fans and the media. A lot of it has been deserved, a lot of it has not.

    But, given their accomplishments, you know who is going to get ten times more criticism? The QB and the coach who eventually replace the two of them.

    RG-3 is the best QB ever or ever will be. Forget Manning and his lil’ sister Eli, forget Brady & Rogers (they’ll be out of the closet soon enough), forget Montana, Young, Marino, Unitas and Ryan Leaf. RG-3 is the man. All of the other QBs combined will not equal his records by the time he is done. RG-3 doesn’t need preseason and he doesn’t need to practice even, you can’t expand on excellence. After he retires in 30 years, football will be canceled as there will be no more excitement in the game.

    Clever use of Carlos Danger, made me laugh.

    Even though Ryan produced written proof that Russ Lande of Sporting News considered him the best quarterback in the draft, and would have drafted him first overall, the Giants were not impressed.

    I have a bad feeling Nassib will be pressed into service at midseason after a flailing start for the Giants and Eli. I’m very concerned that Eli’s arm is shot and that he won’t be an effective starter anymore this season.

    If the Giants can get to 7 – 9 this season I think that will be a very good showing considering the troubles with the roster and the continued improvement in the Redskins, Cowboys and Eagles.

    How did the Cowboys improve, they didn’t do anything in the offseason, the Skins are a one year wonder, the Eagles new scheme won’t work in the NFL.

    Eli is a tough dude and he will be ok. Eli’s arm is shot, do you even watch football, Eli’s arm was fine at the end of the season.

    NY Giants will be the 2014 Super Bowl Champions, mark it down.

    I thought Carlos Danger was Anthony Weiner’s pseudonym and not Brett Favre, er, nevermind.

    By 2015 this kid will be traded to some QB desperate team (looking at you Minnesota) after he lights it up in Preseason a few times..
