With all the rumors swirling around about what the NY Giants could do to address their current quarterback situation, one that has stuck out has been that Joe Schoen may sign a veteran this offseason as opposed to drafting a rookie in the early rounds. This was reported by ESPN insiderMatt Miller, who brought up the potential of New York bringing in Jacoby Brissett.
Brissett is a very fine backup option, but there are plenty of other options available for the Giants who could have a bigger impact on the team than him. Ideally, we'd like to see New York draft a rookie in the first two rounds. However, if their plan is to sign a veteran, these four guys may be better options than Brissett.
4. Joshua Dobbs
He was far from perfect last season, but Joshua Dobbs had his fair share of bright moments as a starter for the Cardinals and Vikings. While he definitely shouldn't continue to be a starter moving forward, the Giants could have interest in bringing the 29-year-old QB in.
Dobbs would fit the Giants' offensive scheme pretty well with his abilities to run and pass at a decent level. Not to mention, he has starting experience unlike a fair amount of the other QBs on the market this offseason.
In 12 starts in 2023, Dobbs completed 62.8 percent of his passes for 2,464 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. For a starter, these numbers are not ideal, but for a backup who may need to play a game or two, these are acceptable.
Spotrac.com has Dobbs at an estimated market value of $6.7 million, which is more than fair and in the Giants' price range. They paid Tyrod Taylor around $5 million over two seasons and while he may be better than Dobbs, Taylor's play may make him a more expensive option that Schoen may not want to pay for.
