as backup material
Well, Tanney is still under contract...  
Klaatu : 2/7/2020 9:55 am : link
But if they want to go with a younger version, I'd sign A.J. McCarron.
A lot of good options that should come at a reasonable price...  
KDavies : 2/7/2020 10:00 am : link
no idea, why they would keep Tanney, especially with a new head coach and OC
I would prefer someone with a similar skill set to Jones  
Jay on the Island : 2/7/2020 10:07 am : link
Mariota would be my top choice but he will likely be looking for a starting job and more than likely will be too expensive.

Case Keenum is the likeliest option.
Miami reportedly is keeping Fitzpatrick  
Jay on the Island : 2/7/2020 10:07 am : link
If he were available he would be my top choice.
I don't know who, but my guess is that they sign a vet who's ready  
Ira : 2/7/2020 10:09 am : link
and draft a rookie late.
I know he is a bit older  
figgy2989 : 2/7/2020 10:17 am : link
But if the cost is right, I wouldn't mind seeing Colt McCoy come in as a back up. Been in the league a long time and could certainly assist Jones with his development.

In the event Jones were to miss a game, McCoy is capable of filing in for spot starts.

That makes me think

I just realized we have NO ONE at backup QB (Tanney hardly counts). I bet we get a vet, too, but I bet this means we're drafting a "developmental" QB. 4th round maybe??
I know some will scoff  
Jay on the Island : 2/7/2020 10:37 am : link
But Blake Bortles is worth a look. He is not at the top of my list but he with a solid coaching staff he could contribute if needed to step in for Jones.

Matt Moore is a good short term option if he is willing to play for another year. Iíve wanted the Giants to sign him for years. He has always played well when forced onto the field and did well for KC last season.

Many options probably available for a team friendly deal.  
Ivan15 : 2/7/2020 11:01 am : link
I would look for a guy with a similar skill set to Jones a day scheme fit, whatever that is.

On a side note, someone is going to get a QB who can get them to the playoffs if they sign Dalton. On a team with more character - not characters - he could go further in the playoffs. Panthers, Titans, Bucs?
Bring back Gino!  
RobCrossRiver56 : 2/7/2020 11:17 am : link
Can you replace an Alex Tanney?  
Mad Mike : 2/7/2020 11:24 am : link
That's big shoes for someone to fill, not sure you could even find someone willing to try, let alone succeed.

How about maybe not? Take a flyer in the 6th or 7th, but no earlier than that. 4th round isn't a premium round, but it's a good spot to grab a player who, for whatever, reason, fell out of the first three, at a position where you could use better quality depth.

Another thing to consider is that we don't even know if the Giants will keep three QB's on the roster this year. So, if they can upgrade from Tanney in free agency, they might just stick with two, and maybe a late-day-three pick or UDFA on the practice squad.

Is a guy I would take a look at for sure ,can play in a pinch if Jones get hurt and has won a playoff game .But $$$ may be the issue with him
Chase or Case  
JerryNicklebag : 2/7/2020 11:57 am : link
Either of them has good experience and could step in for a few games if needed.
