The New York Giants have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Geno Smith, formerly of the New York Jets. What It Means: Smith will sign Monday, pending a physical. He may have had an opportunity to start with the Cleveland Browns, but has apparently decided to remain in New York as Eli Manning's backup. The 26-year-old quarterback is still recovering from tearing his ACL in Week 7 of last season, but Geno could theoretically be in line as Manning's eventual replacement when his contract runs out after 2018. Over the last two years, Smith has dropped back just 62 times,...

New York Giants news, 3/23: Geno Smith, Josh Johnson competing for one spot?

New York Giants news, 3/23: Geno Smith, Josh Johnson competing for one spot?

Giants haven’t made big financial commitment to either QB Maybe both Geno Smith and Josh Johnson will be on the New York Giants’ 53-man roster when the 2017 season opens in September. Maybe only one of them will still be around. The Giants signed both as backups to Eli Manning, but their inexpensive contracts make it no big deal for the Giants to move on from at least one of them. In Smith’s case, the Giants guaranteed him $100,000 of a $775,000 base salary on a one-year deal. They also paid him a $200,000 roster bonus on March 22, which was Wednesday. So, they have just $300,000...

5 plays that prove Rhett Ellison was a smart pickup by Giants

5 plays that prove Rhett Ellison was a smart pickup by Giants

There is precedent for the New York Giants picking off a team’s backup tight end who was stuck behind the obvious starter. They did it to the Dallas Cowboys, who were unwilling to unleash the full potential of Martellus Bennett while playing behind Jason Witten. Bennett became a favorite target of Eli Manning and a brilliant blocker in the run game.

Apparently, what they saw from him was enough...

Are the Giants better right now than they were in 2016?

Are the Giants better right now than they were in 2016?

Let’s take a look at the key developments thus far It is still the middle of March. The ink is barely dry on the four-year contract Jason Pierre-Paul signed. The 2017 NFL Draft is still more than a month away. The New York Giants won’t hold an on-field offseason practice for another two months. They won’t play a regular-season game for nearly six months. Yet, fans are obsessing. Who is going to be the placekicker? What is going on with the backup cornerbacks? Who is going to take over for Eli Manning at quarterback — three years or so from now? OMG, the Giants can’t be serious...
