Who is NY Giants’ Daniel Jones’ backup quarterback? | Depth chart
The NY Giants made a move this offseason, in hopes of bolstering the depth at quarterback behind Daniel Jones
Colt McCoy, after one season in an NY Giants uniform, is out and Mike Glennon is in, as the NY Giants revamped the quarterback depth chart this past offseason.
The 2021 season will, of course, be pivotal when it comes to Jones’ development as well as his future with the NY Giants. Last season, Jones missed a pair of games due to hamstring and ankle injuries, and has been the working definition of inconsistent since being chosen No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Jones, the Giants hope, makes significant strides this season and proves he can be one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks and help lead New York back to the postseason for the first time since 2016.
But, what happens if Jones suffers an injury behind an offensive line that remains a bit of an unknown?
Here is a breakdown of the NY Giants’ quarterback depth chart, as training camp and the 2021 NFL season approaches:
Why it matters:
The NY Giants obviously felt that upgrading the backup quarterback position was necessary this offseason, when the organization signed Mike Glennon, and allowed Colt McCoy to walk via free agency.
Last season, Jones missed two games due to hamstring and ankle injuries, and was limited in several other contests. One of the measuring sticks the NY Giants will use to evaluate whether he can develop into one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks, will be his durability.
But, if Jones suffers another injury this season, the NY Giants are banking on Glennon stepping in and offense not skipping a beat.
