Saints agreed to terms with QB Ryan Nassib.'s Ian Rapoport claims the Saints have "always been high" on the ex-Giants backup. Nassib had only made one visit since the G-Men let his contract expire. Preposterously buzzed about as a potential first-rounder in 2013, Nassib ended up falling to Round 4. He will be a camp arm behind Drew Brees, Chase Daniel and Garrett Grayson in New Orleans.

Free agent QB Ryan Nassib is working out for the Cowboys on Thursday.

It is the first we have heard from Nassib since he was placed on injured reserve with an elbow injury which required surgery by the Giants in December. Now apparently healthy, Nassib can begin his search for a backup job. Dallas is also working out S Jeron Johnson, WR Lance Lenior, and S Duke Williams.

Giants placed Ryan Nassib (elbow) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He'll undergo surgery. New York also made Shane Vereen's (triceps) move to the reserve list official while adding LB Ishaq Williams and RB George Winn to the active roster. With Nassib out, Josh Johnson will serve as Eli Manning's backup. An impending free agent, Nassib has shown nothing to suggest he is a future starter. He will be looking for a backup job this spring.

Eli Manning believes backup Ryan Nassib can be a starting quarterback.

"He's a hard worker, he's smart," Manning said of Nassib. "Just from watching him and how he prepares, how he makes plays in practice, his football mind and ability, there's no reason he can't be a starter." Nassib is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is unlikely to get that starting chance with the Giants. He's been the subject of trade rumors the past two offseasons.

According to the's Jordan Raanan, Giants contract-year QB Ryan Nassib has looked "vastly improved" in OTA practices.

Raanan says Nassib "barely looked" like a pro-caliber quarterback two offseasons ago, but he's become "harder to differentiate" from Eli Manning in recent practices. Raanan believes Nassib even throws with better velocity than Eli and "can do significantly more damage on the move." Manning, 35, is under contract for four more seasons. If Nassib has a productive preseason, he will generate interest on the 2017 free agent market.

ESPN New York reports the Giants haven’t received trade interest in Ryan Nassib.

The Giants received offers for Nassib last year, but there’s nothing to suggest he’ll be moved this offseason. Nassib should return as Eli Manning’s backup for the final year of his rookie deal.

The New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano has "a feeling" the Giants "might consider" trading backup QB Ryan Nassib this offseason.

Nassib is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the Giants just signed Eli Manning to another extension last year. New York reportedly received offers on Nassib around draft time last year, but ultimately decided to hold onto the former fourth-round pick. In a weak quarterback market for free agency and the draft, it wouldn't hurt to see what Nassib could bring back. He's attempted just 10 regular-season passes, completing nine for 128 yards and a TD.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin stated at the Combine that he sees rising third-year QB Ryan Nassib as an eventual NFL starter.

The 110th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Nassib completed his second preseason with a 59.5 completion rate, 7.9 YPA, and 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio, easily winning the Giants' backup quarterback job. Eli Manning is among the most durable players in football, so Nassib hasn't gotten any meaningful real-game chances. Turning 25 in March, Nassib is an intriguing QB3/4 stash in Dynasty.

Ryan Nassib was the No. 2 quarterback in Friday's regular-season dress rehearsal, completing 8-of-12 passes for 103 yards and three touchdowns.

That should put him ahead of Curtis Painter for good in the battle to back up Eli Manning. Painter didn't play this evening. Nassib is now 38-of-60 for 481 yards (8.01 YPA), five touchdowns and zero interceptions through four preseason games.

Ryan Nassib received the majority of reps with the second-team offense in practice this week.

Nassib played with the third-string offense in last week's preseason game, but his strong performance has him back ahead of Curtis Painter. He's competed 30-of-48 passes (62.5 percent) for 378 yards with two touchdowns and a fumble through three preseason games. Nassib needs to hold off Painter to make the Giants' 53-man roster.

The Newark Star-Ledger believes Giants second-year QB Ryan Nassib is in danger of not making the 53-man roster.

Just last April, he was being talked up as a potential top-ten draft pick. Nassib ended up lasting to the fourth round. He was then believed to be in line to succeed Eli Manning. Now, he may lose his roster spot to Curtis Painter -- the same Painter that has an 0-8 career record and 57.6 passer rating.

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan said Giants QB Ryan Nassib "was a train wreck during Friday's practice."

"One 8-yard throw to the far side probably missed his receiver by eight yards," Raanan said. "Nassib needs to get it together." The Giants will give every opportunity to a player they spent a fourth-round pick on just one year ago, but Nassib may not have the talent to capitalize. With New York traditionally only keeping two quarterbacks, Nassib is staring into the very real possibility he is cut.

Ryan Nassib will get the majority of second-team reps in training camp.

Nassib worked with the second-team throughout OTAs, so it confirms he'll enter camp ahead of Curtis Painter. A 2013 fourth-round pick, Nassib hasn't shown much in terms of development to this point. The Giants typically only keep two quarterbacks. Nassib will need to win the backup job to avoid getting cut.

Second-year QB Ryan Nassib opened OTAs as the Giants' second-string quarterback, behind Eli Manning.

Eli quarterbacked the ones, Nassib the twos, and Josh Freeman and Curtis Painter handled the rest. The 110th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Nassib completed 7-of-19 throws for 114 yards in his rookie preseason, absorbing five sacks. He's going to have to show improvement to hold off Freeman behind Eli.

ESPN New York believes Ryan Nassib will have to win the No. 2 quarterback job to keep his roster spot.

The Giants only like to keep two quarterbacks, so Nassib will have to hold off Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman. If he loses out, Nassib isn't going to be worth keeping as a developmental third-stringer. Nassib struggled in three preseason games last year and needs to perform well in training camp to avoid getting cut.
