Who would have thought people would be calling for Jake Fromm in early November. Okay, maybe that's not happening, but NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen couldn't do any better in adding depth to the quarterbacks room?
Earlier on Tuesday, people did a double take when they read a report from Jordan Raanan that the G-Men brought in quarterback Jacob Eason for a workout. Eason, a former star at the University of Washington and Colts draft pick, has appeared in two regular season games in his career.
The thought of signing Eason was a bit head-scratching. Well, Schoen took things to that level, inking the 6-6 signal-caller to the practice squad. Alrighty then.
The Giants signing Jacob Eason isn't going to excite a single person out there
No disrespect to Eason, but Giants fans have been hoping for some good news following the 30-6 loss to the Raiders: this isn't it. Eason is a former fourth-rounder who barely has any experience playing in the regular season (only two appearances). Big Blue Nation couldn't be more underwhelmed by this move from Schoen:
No one ever thought the Giants would be in a position where they'd be signing someone like Eason on Nov. 7 to try and help out with QB depth. After powering the Giants to a 9-7-1 record last season, Daniel Jones was given his $160 million extension.
Everyone was dreaming of him putting on a show from start to finish this year. Instead, he suffered a neck injury in Week 5, missed three games and then he tore his ACL in his Week 9 return against the Las Vegas Raiders. Not only is Jones out for the year, but his future as this team's QB1 is in serious doubt.
Tyrod Taylor is Jones' backup, but he suffered a rib injury against the Jets and he's since been placed on Injured Reserve - Taylor is out for at least three more games. That leaves either Tommy DeVito or Matt Barkley as the projected starter vs. the Cowboys this Sunday, but now Eason is in the mix as well. Just cancel the season already. People in New York and New Jersey have suffered enough.
