Waived by Big Blue

Earns futures deal

Lewerke agreed to a reserve/future contract with the Giants, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Lewerke signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in 2020. He then joined the Giants in training camp after getting cut loose by New England. Lewerke was bumped up to the active roster for Week 18 to backup Jake Fromm but remained on the sidelines.

Elevated for finale

Lewerke was elevated from the Giants' practice squad Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Lewerke has spent the entire season on the Giants' practice squad, though Sunday should mark his first game being active. With both Mike Glennon (wrist) and Daniel Jones (neck) sidelined, Lewerke is likely to serve as Jake Fromm's backup.

Sent to waivers

The Giants waived Lewerke on Tuesday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Lewerke and Clayton Thorson were both let go this week, leaving Mike Glennon as the primary backup to Daniel Jones. If Lewerke clears waivers, he may be a practice squad candidate for the Giants.

Signs with Giants

Lewerke agreed to a contract with the Giants on Sunday, agent Mike McCartney reports.

Analysis: The combination of Mike Glennon and Clayton Thorson failed to reach 100 yards through the air in the preseason opener against the Jets with starter Daniel Jones sitting out, so the Giants have opted to shake things up in their quarterback room. Lewerke will likely compete with Thorson for the third-string quarterback role and could see some playing time in Week 2 of preseason against the Browns.

Cut by Pats

New England waived Lewerke on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Lewerke never had a real shot at making the final team, with all of Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer around, but he could be a candidate to resurface on the practice squad.
