NY Giants fans simply can’t believe Joe Schoen released QB Davis Webb

There’s got to be more to this story, right? With the New York Giants and general manager Joe Schoen having to do some extra work to get the roster down to 53, there were sure to be some-eye-opening moves. Things started with Alex Bachman getting cut, but then things have now reached a different level thanks to a move at quarterback.

In a bit of a stunner, the G-Men have released veteran quarterback Davis Webb. Webb, who passed up a coaching gig to suit up for the Giants this season, was a stud over the last month in preseason action. However, for now, it looks like it wasn’t enough to keep him in town for the 2022 campaign.

Webb indeed put on a show in the preseason, but it is important to remember that this came against the 2s and 3s for opposing defenses. Giants insider Jordan Raanan also makes a good point that this must mean the injury suffered by veteran backup Tyrod Taylor in the preseason finale vs. the Jets doesn’t look to be too serious.

Despite that, you’ve got to feel for Webb. He was all set to join the Bills’ coaching staff, but decided to take a chance with the Giants instead. You’d hope head coach Brian Daboll and Schoen have been open with Webb over the past few weeks about his chances of making the roster – who knows, maybe even a spot on Daboll’s staff has been discussed. For now, though, it looks like Webb got a bit unlucky here and Giants fans aren’t too pleased about things on social media.


Webb could end up on the practice squad too if another team doesn’t claim him. Daboll and Co. must have full confidence in Taylor backing up Daniel Jones. If Webb does land with a new squad, it’s going to make Giants supporters even more frustrated in how things ended for him in East Rutherford. Stay tuned, though. Perhaps Webb ends up playing with the Giants in 2022 after some more roster shuffling. This will surely be a wait and see.
