One of the biggest storylines from the NY Giants loss against the Jets was the injury of Tyrod Taylor, who went down in the second quarter with what looked to be a pretty serious rib injury. Tommy DeVito took the field and he finished with -1 passing yards. Yup, he can't be trusted to run this offense moving forward.
This makes it all the more likely that Joe Schoen will bring in a veteran QB to backup, or maybe even start over DeVito if Daniel Jones still isn't ready to go this weekend. The good thing about this? There are plenty of options and the Giants have even worked out a few guys in recent weeks likely in anticipation of another injury. Here's a look at three players Joe Schoen should call ASAP:
3. QB Colt McCoy
Colt McCoy may not have a ton left in the tank at 37 years old, but he's no stranger to the Giants organization and could bring things to the table that DeVito cannot. The former Longhorn legend has had a long, roller coaster of a career, but overall, he's consistently been one of the NFL's most solid backup QBs.
McCoy even had a stint in NY in which he backed up Jones and in the two starts we saw from him he completed 32 of his 53 pass attempts for 326 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. These aren't great numbers, but McCoy managed to win the Giants a game in a massive upset against the Seahawks.
It's doubtful that the Giants bring McCoy in compared to the other two options, but when looking at the other FA quarterbacks available, he makes more sense than most. If they opt to bring McCoy in, he could not only be a good emergency QB option, but could play a good role in mentoring DeVito if he's forced to start again.
