Giants bring back quarterback Josh Johnson

Some headlines were made when Jets free agent Geno Smith visited the Giants, but the more stable of the New York teams have opted for a more familiar face to fill their quarterback depth chart.

According to a tweet from his agent, quarterback Josh Johnson has agreed to a new two-year deal with the Giants.

Ryan Nassib is still a free agent, and the only other quarterback the Giants have on the roster behind Eli Manning is Keith Wenning.

They have to start looking for an heir to the 36-year-old Manning at some point in the next few years, but have been content in recent years to wait to start that process.

    I like Josh Johnson. He could have developed into a starter but Tampa Bay sorta messed him up. He has talent.

    Josh Johnson has bounced all over the NFL. He’s like a black Brian Hoyer but Hoyer is actual starter material.
    I just don’t understand why NFL teams keep signing these retreads who have proven that they’re not good.

    IMO the NFL has to accept that CFB is not in the business of developing QBs and start they’re own spring league, maybe a 7-on-7 type of thing, where QBs can be developed specifically for the pro game.
    No gimmick, spread/option QBs need apply.

    Josh Johnson’s college stats almost look fake.

    I hope this guy gets a chance to show what he can do. He’s got the talent, and in the right situation, he could be a real find for team. Barring an injury to Eli, it won’t happen with the Giants.
