Alex Tanney will get an opportunity to continue his career with the New York Giants in 2020. Per a report from Field Yates, the Giants have exercised the option in Tanney’s contract for the upcoming season.
Tanney was a backup for the Giants the last two seasons. He appeared in only one game in that time, completing his only pass last season for 1 yard.
Tanney, 32, has been in the NFL since joining the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth (IL.) in 2012.
Tanney has played in only two games in that time, completing 11-of-15 passes (73.3 percent) for 100 yards and 1 touchdown.
Tanney’s base salary, per Over The Cap, will be $950K and his cap hit slightly above $1 million.
Even with Tanney back, it still seems likely the Giants will bring in at least one more veteran quarterback to compete for the No. 2 role behind Daniel Jones.
