Drew Lock To Be Giants Backup

Friday, March 15, 12:25 PM

Despite a report on Thursday evening that Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the New York Giants convinced him that quarterback Drew Lock would compete for a starting role with the G-Men in 2024, the Giants did not tell Lock that he would be competing for the starting gig with Daniel Jones in order to sign him. Lock signed a one-year, $5 million deal with New York on Tuesday to fill the traditional role of a backup behind Jones, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. Schneider said Seattle wanted to re-sign Lock, but he opted not to return to the Seahawks. Jones is coming off a torn ACL and is running out of chances to prove himself as the QB of the future for the Giants, but there is no QB controversy between him and Lock to open the season.

Bryce Young Impressing During Offseason Workouts

Monday, May 20, 9:24 PM

Carolina Panthers second-year quarterback Bryce Young, who looked lost in his rookie campaign in 2023, has impressed head coach Dave Canales at offseason workouts. Canales loves the way Young has picked up an offense that has helped Baker Mayfield, Russell Wilson and Geno Smith to career-best seasons. "He's doing fantastic with it," Canales said Monday after the first full day of voluntary workouts. "So, for us the formations are pretty vanilla so we can just teach the concept we want out of each route, the depth, the footwork we want." Young said having just Canales' voice in his ear has been "super important" after a rough rookie season in which he ranked 29th out of 30 QBs in total QBR (33.4). It will be hard for Young to be much worse in his sophomore season in 2024, and the Panthers also added some playmakers around him via the draft and trade market, but he'll still merely be a low-end QB2 with upside in fantasy leagues.
