Davis Webb waived by New York Giants Davis Webb , who appeared only a few days ago to have solidified a spot as the No. 2 quarterback for the New York Giants, is being waived.ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan was first with the report.The move means that veteran Alex Tanney and fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta will be the backups for Eli Manning. In which order remains unknown.Webb was selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft by then-Giants GM Jerry Reese. He didn’t play a single snap last season as the Giants careened to a 3-13 season that saw Reese and coach Ben McAdoo fired before the season ended.New GM Dave Gettleman and new coach Pat Shurmur both said when they came on board that they knew little about Webb.An avid student of the game and hard worker, Webb did everything possible to prove to the Giants new regime that he was capable of being Manning’s backup, and perhaps deserving of a shot at being his heir at some point down the line.That, however, wasn’t to be.The Giants new regime has decided, quite simply, that Webb is not the quarterback they want backing up — or succeeding — Manning.Nothing about Webb’s time with the Giants has ever been easy to understand. Reese drafted Webb without McAdoo having met with or worked him out. When the Giants season went into the Hudson River last year and he should have been playing, he wasn’t. Now that he appeared to earn the backup job, he has instead earned a ticket to the NFL unemployment line.Webb went 28-of-53 (52.8 percent) for 283 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the preseason. He did not play in the final preseason game, a curious move which perhaps can now be explained by the fact that he has been let go.There were whispers on Saturday that the Giants were trying to trade Webb. Still hopeful of doing so at the deadline for setting 53-man rosters on Saturday, the Giants hung on to four quarterbacks.Unable to find a trade partner, and needing to clear roster space for the six players they claimed on waivers Saturday, the Giants parted ways with the second-year quarterback.Webb went 28-of-53 (52.8 percent) for 283 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the preseason. A week ago, offensive lineman Jamon Brown was part of a Los Angeles Rams team that was unbeaten and thinking Super Bowl. Now, he finds himself with the 1-7 New York Giants Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , a team amidst a second straight dismal season. That doesn’t seem to bother Brown, who was practically bubbly when he met with reporters Tuesday in the Giants’ locker room.“At the end of the day, you approach it all the same. Whether you’re 8-1, whether you’re 1-7, it doesn’t change your approach about anything,” Brown said. “You attack it the same is all I can say about that. We’re going to make sure we do everything we can to try to turn it around, and finish the season strong.”The Giants need the 6-foot-4, 340-pound fourth-year player to attack his new gig. With the right side of their offensive line in shambles, the Giants want him in their lineup as quickly as possible. Perhaps even Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.“It’s a possibility,’ said coach Pat Shurmur. “Again, he’s only been here hours, it’s not even days yet, but what he’s done and how quickly he picks things up, there’s a chance he could be in there.“Certainly being here longer helps him, but we’ll try to structure it so he knows what he’s doing.”It’s been a whirlwind week for Brown. He was waived Tuesday and awarded to the Giants on Wednesday. He arrived Thursday and got his playbook. He’s been to Los Angeles and back one other time since.“It’s been crazy. You’re in LA n Tuesday, you fly to New York on Thursday. Obviously Janoris Jenkins Jersey , it was the bye week. So, you fly back to LA, and then you come back on Sunday, and here we are,” Brown said. “One practice in it. I went back and forth twice, and then we’ll go back for San Fran (for Monday’s game). So, my frequent flyer miles are out the roof right now.”Brown has played in 41 NFL games with 30 starts. He has played every position except center, though guard is his primary spot. He started 16 games at right guard for the Rams in 2017, and whenever he is ready to play that is where he seems likely to slot in with the Giants.If and when Brown moves into the lineup, the question for the Giants will be who plays center next to him. John Greco started four games at center and played well there before moving to right guard two games ago to replace Patrick Omameh, with Stephen Pulley inserted at center.Tuesday, though, Shurmur just seemed happy to have added a player who could help an offensive line that has been a disappointment.“He’s a good looking guy and we’ve spent – what we’ve been allowed to do this weekend – time with him. He was here all day yesterday, and he’s picked things up fairly quickly. You saw he was out there already, and I think Hal (Hunter) and Ben (Wilkerson) have done a good job getting him up to speed. We’re going to try to get him in there as quickly as possible,” Shurmur said. “This guy started the whole season Kerry Wynn Jersey , had a little incident where he’s no longer starting, and we were thrilled he was available. He’s a big man, he’s athletic, and he certainly looks the part in some of the reps I saw today.”That “little incident” was a February 2017 traffic stop during which marijuana was found in his car. That led to a two-game suspension at the beginning of this season. When he returned from that, Brown found that Austin Blythe had taken his old job.Brown said he was “most definitely” blindsided when the Rams let him go.“I think anyone would be in a situation like that. It’s kind of the belly of the beast. At any given time, you can be in one place, and then the next day a new place,” Brown said. “Yes, it was shocking. I think it was shocking even to them for making that move, just based on the conversations I’ve had with some of the staff members in the organization. At the end of the day, the dream lives on. I have another opportunity right here in New York, and I’m going to make the most of it.”You kind of got to treat it like you do a game. When you have a bad play, you got to have the next-play mentality. That’s kind of how I’m approaching this one. I was with the Rams when I was with the Rams, now I’m with the Giants. Giants let’s go!
