Shuffle continues as Giants look for a third quarterback

The New York Giants have swapped quarterbacks, claiming Logan Thomas off waivers and dropping B.J. Daniels from their 90-man roster.

Thomas, a 2014 fourth-round draft choice of the Arizona Cardinals, was waived Thursday by the Miami Dolphins. The 6-foot-6, 248-pound 24-year-old is considered a developmental project. He played in six games for the Cardinals in 2014, completing just one of nine passes for 81 yards.

The Giants signed Daniels, who has had brief stints at both quarterback and wide receiver with the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans, after a rookie minicamp tryout. Daniels replaced Josh Woodrum on the 90-man roster.

It seems increasingly apparent that the Giants, with backup Ryan Nassib in the final year of his contract, are considering keeping a third quarterback as they look toward the possibility of eventually needing a No. 2 signal-caller to replace the former Syracuse star.

Thomas, on Miami’s practice squad last season, is a gamble by the Giants. The Miami Herald reports that Thomas was awful on Thursday, his final practice before the Dolphins cut him. The Giants will be his third organization in three seasons. Yours truly predicted earlier Friday that Daniels would not be a long-term answer for the Giants. There is no guarantee Thomas will be, either, but the Giants are curious enough to take a look.
