New York Giants QB Eli Manning told NJ.com that he thinks backup quarterback Ryan Nassib has "done a great job" and is a "hard worker" so far in his career. The future Hall of Famer also believes that Nassib has a future in the NFL as a starter. "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," Manning said. (James Kratch NJ.com)
Ryan Nassib is entering his third season in the NFL and as Eli Manning's backup. Due to Manning's durability, Nassib hasn't garnered very much in-game experience in regular season action. In two years, Nassib appeared in five contests and threw for 128 yards and a touchdown.
