Giants add a new back-up quarterback
It looks like the New York Giants will have a new back-up quarterback in 2021.
Brandan Bishop broke the news on Twitter that quarterback Mike Glennon is signing with the Giants. He was a teammate of Glennon’s at NC State.
When looking at this move, I think Glennon is an upgrade over McCoy because of his arm strength. He will be able to get the ball deep down the field to guys like John Ross and Darius Slayton if he has to play this coming season.
The 31 year-old Glennon was a third round pick out of NC State by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013. He’s also spent time with the Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and most recently the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Glennon is also three years younger than McCoy and when looking at each player’s career stats, he has the edge over McCoy as well.
So far during Glennon’s career he has thrown for 6,235 yards, 43 touchdowns, 25 interceptions and a rating of 83.5. McCoy on the other hand has thrown for 6,455 yards, 30 touchdowns, 28 interceptions and a rating of 78.1.
