Josh Johnson - QB - Giants
Giants re-signed QB Josh Johnson to a two-year contract.
Johnson served as the Giants' third-string QB last year behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib, who is now a free agent. The former fifth-round pick hasn't taken an NFL snap since 2013. This may take the Giants out of the running for Geno Smith, who visited last week.

@BrianCoz
Source confirms Geno Smith and Giants have reached a deal. He will have a physical this weekend and then sign

Geno Smith has to pass a physical first. He has been rehabbing a torn ACL ..


Geno Smith - QB - Giants
The Giants have agreed to terms with Geno Smith, formerly of the Jets.
The deal is pending a physical. Smith may have had a chance to start in Cleveland but ultimately decided to stay in East Rutherford, where he'll serve as the backup to Eli Manning. He'll be reuniting with Brandon Marshall, who landed a two-year deal with the Giants after being dumped by the Jets earlier this month. The 26-year-old is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 7 last season.

I would expect neither of the deals to hurt the Giants salary cap situation much and I would expect there will be a competition between the two as to who will back up Eli (loser goes home).    I could think of worse situations for the team to be in.   The only thing I would say, is that the signing of the two of them means the Giants are not expecting to draft a QB in this draft (at least one they think is near being ready).

If they can't find somebody more competent than Geno Smith with 1.5 ACL's then somebody in that scouting department needs to have their head examined.  My goodness.

Upon further consideration I have to rescind my first comment.  The Giants had to veterans battling it out the year they drafted Nassib

hope geo smith passes his physical, he is only 28 years of age, and would be a nice fit as our backup.'

'really who else is there.

maybe a qb in the late round.

happy if geo is on the team.
