Giants could add another quarterback
With the New York Giants ready to kickoff their rookie minicamp from May14-16, they have invited Canadian quarterback Nathan Rourke.
Rourke went undrafted in 2020 and with rookie mini-camps not happening last year due to COVID-19 he he was never able to try out for an NFL team.
The Giants currently have four quarterbacks on their roster with Daniel Jones, Mike Glennon, Clayton Thorson, and Joe Webb. There is a chance that Rourke could make the team and overtake Thorson or Webb if he does enough to impress.
Rourke played his college ball at the University of Ohio and during his final season threw for 2,676 yards, 20 touchdowns against five interceptions and a 61.4 completion percentage. he also rushed for 780 yards and 12 touchdowns.
I would imagine that the fact that Rourke is a duel-threat quarterback, similar to Jones, it might be more enticing for the Giants to give him a contract if they feel that he is good enough.
If Rourke does get a contract, he will then come back for training camp and try to win a spot on the Giants’ 53-man roster or at least get signed to their practice squad.
