The Giants Sure Sound Like They’re Scouting College QBs To Replace Eli Manning
As the Giants continue to disappoint with a 1-7 record, the franchise is apparently experiencing a little wanderlust when it comes to looking for a new QB to take over the team’s next chapter. Though Eli Manning‘s job is safe for now, the Giants are apparently looking to college prospects for a potential franchise replacement.
According to ESPN, co-owner John Mara kickstarted the effort a few weeks back when it was clear that things weren’t going to get better or salvageable this season. The team, along with many others, no doubt, are eying UCLA’s Josh Rosen, USC’s Sam Darnold, and Wyoming’s Josh Allen.
Of course, Eli is getting up there in years, so this move seems more prudent than earth-shattering, but it does mean that if they find their guy and Eli gets restless, he could find himself on a new squad come next year—which might actually be the more interesting story here.
