The New York Giants have found a backup quarterback for Eli Manning.
The New York Giants have found a backup quarterback for Eli Manning. Free-agent quarterback Josh Freeman is now a member of the Giants. According to his agent Erik Burkhardt, the Giants reached a one-year deal with Freeman.
Freeman was released by the Buccaneers early in 2013 and signed on with the Vikings. He only played a single game for Minnesota.
Freeman will now back up Eli and give the Giants a fairly decent backup option should something happen to Manning injury-wise.
