Giants waived QB Curtis Painter.
Ryan Nassib wins the No. 2 QB job in New York with a surprisingly solid preseason. Nassib completed 44-of-74 passes for 588 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in five exhibition games. Painter is an uninspiring backup, but he may get a look. Sat, Aug 30, 2014 09:34:00 AM

Curtis Painter received more reps with the second-team offense at the expense of Ryan Nassib at Giants practice on Monday.

Painter has completed all 10 of his preseason passes for 94 yards and one touchdown, leading the Giants to a game-winning drive against the Steelers Saturday. Nassib has gone just 19-of-33 for 220 yards and a score this preseason. Coach Tom Coughlin said Painter has earned the additional reps.

Reserve Giants QB Curtis Painter is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, and will be sidelined four weeks.

The Giants' Josh Freeman and Rusty Smith signings just got a little more understandable. Four weeks should have Painter ready in plenty of time for training camp, but going on 29 with an unimpressive track record, his roster spot is far from assured. The Giants have second-year pro Ryan Nassib in the huddle in addition to Painter, Freeman, Smith, and Eli Manning.

Giants re-signed QB Curtis Painter.

Painter was Eli Manning's backup in 2013, but those duties could fall to Ryan Nassib this season. Depending on how Nassib looks in camp, Painter might not make the 53-man roster. Painter threw two picks in 16 pass attempts last season.

Coach Tom Coughlin named Curtis Painter the Giants' No. 2 quarterback.

Painter's solid preseason made David Carr expendable. Painter will be the No. 2, and rookie Ryan Nassib the No. 3 behind Eli Manning. "We simply based it on the preseason," Coughlin said. "From the standpoint of all the evaluations, it pointed to the fact that Painter had a better preseason." In August, Painter showed some ability to move the offense and had zero turnovers.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 04:39:00 PM

Giants signed QB Curtis Painter, WR Brandon Collins, WR Kevin Hardy, OG Michael Jasper, DB Trumaine McBride, LB Jake Muasau, and DT Bobby Skinner to reserve/future contracts.

Painter was out of the league in 2012 after getting cut by the Ravens coming out of training camp. He started eight games for the Colts in 2011, finishing with a 54.3 completion rate, 66.6 passer rating, 6:9 TD-to-INT ratio, and 6.3 YPA.
Thu, Jan 3, 2013 05:35:00 PM

Ravens waived or released RB Anthony Allen, LB Josh Bynes, OL Antoine McClain, QB Curtis Painter, WR Logan Payne, DB Cyhl Quarles, and C Tony Wragge.

Tyrod Taylor beat out Painter for the No. 2 job behind Joe Flacco. A developmental quarterback could be added to the practice squad. Allen was made expendable after the emergence of Bobby Rainey, who will compete with Bernard Pierce behind Ray Rice.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 10:06:00 PM

Coach John Harbaugh has repeatedly said that Curtis Painter will enter training camp as the No. 3 quarterback.

Harbaugh has been in Tyrod Taylor's corner all offseason. Painter went 0-8 as a starter with the Colts last season, completing just 54.7 percent of his passes and throwing nine interceptions against six touchdowns during that span. The Ravens gave him a one-year, $615,000 contract that included no signing bonus. He's no lock to stick on the final roster.
Thu, Jul 5, 2012 10:51:00 AM

Ravens signed QB Curtis Painter to a one-year contract.

Painter apparently got the edge over Dennis Dixon and Kyle Boller due to his history with new QBs coach Jim Caldwell. Owner of a career 51.7 completion percentage and 60.6 passer rating, Painter will likely end up third on the depth chart behind Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor.
Thu, Apr 19, 2012 03:22:00 PM

In addition to Dennis Dixon and Kyle Boller, the Ravens will work out free agent QB Curtis Painter on Thursday.

Painter was waived by the Colts in early March and was not claimed by a team. The 27-year-old could compete for the Ravens' backup job with Tyrod Taylor.
Wed, Apr 18, 2012 02:41:00 PM

Colts waived QB Curtis Painter.

Painter was due only a $565,000 base salary, but the new Colts regime wanted nothing to do with him. While Painter's physical traits are better than his 2011 stats may indicate, he's an absolute nightmare from a footwork and decision-making standpoint. The 27-year-old may latch on as a third-string quarterback somewhere. Baltimore makes some sense after the Ravens hired Jim Caldwell to coach their QBs. He'd be the No. 3 behind Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor.
Fri, Mar 9, 2012 05:20:00 PM

Curtis Painter completed 15-of-29 passes for 226 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

It's another brutally inaccurate day for Painter as the Colts fall to 0-11. He constantly missed receivers high and racked up most of his yardage on a final desperation drive. The Colts need to turn to Dan Orlovsky, but have shown no signs that they will make the move. Over the last five games, Painter has thrown one touchdown against eight interceptions.
Sun, Nov 27, 2011 05:52:00 PM

Curtis Painter will start Sunday's game against the Panthers.

The Colts contemplated a quarterback change during their bye week, but have chosen to stick with Painter. It's really an indictment of backup Dan Orlovsky more than a vote of confidence for Painter. In seven starts this year, Painter has posted a 67.7 passer rating and has won zero games. He hasn't thrown a touchdown pass since Week 6.
Wed, Nov 23, 2011 12:28:00 PM

Coach Jim Caldwell declined to commit to Curtis Painter as his Week 12 starter.

The 0-10 Colts are on a bye this week. Painter has been absolutely brutal over the last four games, tossing six interceptions against zero touchdowns and averaging 127.2 passing yards per game. It's so bad that Caldwell is actually considering turning to Dan Orlovsky.
Tue, Nov 15, 2011 09:41:00 AM

Curtis Painter was benched in favor of Dan Orlovsky during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Coach Jim Caldwell said after the game that Painter remains the team's starter. Orlovsky came in and immediately committed a turnover on a sack fumble recovered by Tyson Alualu. It's possible that Painter eventually plays himself out of the starting job this season, and the decision to go with Orlovsky on Sunday officially puts him on notice. Painter is averaging just 193.5 yards per start and completing 53.3 percent of his passes.
