The New York Giants season comes to an end Sunday. Here are some of the headlines leading up to the game.

Quarterback of the future?

Davis Webb will be active for the first, and only, time this season on Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Despite not having played, and with so much speculation about the Giants drafting a quarterback in the first round, does Webb think he has shown the Giants he can be the quarterback of the future?

“That’s a question you have to ask someone higher up. I can’t answer that,’ he said. “But I do feel like I’ve done everything I can possibly do to be a good teammate and I’m going to continue to grow as a quarterback in this league.”

Webb said he can’t concern himself with what the Giants might do in the 2018 NFL Draft.

“Yeah that’s out of my control so not too much to worry about. I’ve done everything the Giants organization has asked me to do, I’m going to continue to do more, as much as I can to help our teammates enjoy success and help us win games on Sunday. That’s the only thing on my mind,” he said.

Engram wants to play

Rookie tight end Evan Engram left Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals with a rib injury. Despite the meaningless nature of this Sunday’s season finale, he wants to play.

“I want to get out there and compete with my team. It’s the last chance, last opportunity to fight together. This team and this locker room isn’t going to be the same, so it’s the last time,” Engram said. “It’s the last time that we get to go out there and fight together. So, I definitely am going to try everything in the book to get out there and fight with my brothers.”
