This is a great take.This is a tough roster to crack as a UFA QB. Eli is going nowhere, they aren't going to get rid of a #6 Jones even if he is outperformed, Alex Tanney was signed through next year I believe, and Lauletta is signed through next year as well.
He needs to show that he has enough "swiss army knife" in him to be more valuable than one of the back ups, because they aren't carrying 5 qb's on a roster. Hopefully he shows good enough hands that they'll want to hang on to him as some sort of special package guy that can line up in multiple positions.
Saw a clip of him wearing 12 yesterday throwing back and forth with Jones. Gave me goose bumps as a Giants fan.
He will make it awfully tough to be cut. I guarantee none of those QB's has his drive, and his heart.
Lauletta and Tanney are toast IMHO. Signed doesn't mean anything anymore, especially on these baseline deals. Not saying Dungey makes it as the 3rd QB, but I agree that it's going to be awfully tough to cut him. He can instantly fill in on STs and will be a dual threat mock-up on the practice squad.
