Giants Add Matt Barkley To Active Roster

Wednesday, November 8, 12:17 PM

The New York Giants signed quarterback Matt Barkley from the practice squad to their active 53-man roster on Wednesday. Daniel Jones (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, and the team also placed veteran Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on Injured Reserve last weekend. Taylor will miss at least the next three games, but there's a chance he may not play again this year. The G-Men are moving forward with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito under center for the time being, but the 33-year-old Barkley could eventually be making starts for the Giants before the season is over. It's a dire QB situation for New York to be in, and it will be a major downgrade for all of their offensive weapons in fantasy, mainly running back Saquon Barkley.

Daniel Jones Has Been Throwing

Wednesday, February 28, 12:31 AM

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen said that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) started stationary throwing two weeks ago, and the team thinks he could do 7-on-7 work this spring. Jones is currently on track to be ready for the start of training camp this summer. "I have faith in Daniel (Jones) as our starting quarterback," Schoen said. Despite Jones tearing his ACL last year, the Giants continue to put their faith in him as their starter going into the 2024 season, although they won't hesitate to add a QB in the upcoming NFL draft if the situation presents itself. The 27-year-old signed a four-year, $160 million extension before the 2023 season looked pretty bad behind an atrocious offensive line last season before his injury. If Jones struggles again early in 2024, the Giants could be looking to move on from him sooner than later.
