Giants news, 10/1: Could Ryan Nassib be the next Tyrod Taylor?

New York Giants headlines for Thursday.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow on the first day of October.

Nassib: Situation for Tyrod Taylor "huge for guys who've been backups"

Ryan Nassib is entrenched as the Giants' backup quarterback, and if it were up to the Giants, he won't be playing any time soon. He's in a similar place as Tyrod Taylor had been for the last few years, when he was a member of the Baltimore Ravens. Taylor showed promise in limited snaps, but ultimately wasn't going to get playing time with Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco on the roster. Now in Buffalo, Taylor has gotten his chance and so far, has shined as the starter in the Bills' first three games.

"Going into a situation like that where you have an opportunity to compete for a starting job where there's really no solid starter, it's huge for guys who have been backups and are looking for an opportunity to play," Nassib said.

Nassib, who has one year remaining on his rookie contract, may be the next one to receive that chance if he tests the free agent waters.
