Giants Exercise 2020 Option For QB Alex Tanney


According to Field Yates, the Giants have exercised the 2020 option for QB Alex Tanney

New York thought highly enough of Tanney to keep him around last season as a third-string quarterback. He’ll have the chance to compete for the backup role behind Daniel Jones this year. 

Tanney, 32, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth back in 2012. Since then, he’s had brief stints with the Cowboys, Browns, Buccaneers, Titans, Bills and Colts before being signed to the Titans’ active roster at end of the 2015 season.

Tanney spent time on the Titans’ practice squad before eventually being called up. However, the Titans elected to cut him loose in 2018 and he later signed on with the Giants in May. Tanney re-signed in New York last offseason.

In 2015, Tanney appeared in one game for the Titans and completed 10 of 14 pass attempts for 99 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

Another BONEHEAD MOVE by the GMEN BRASS. Douche Gettleman CANNOT GET OUT OF HIS OWN WAY! 2020 is going to be another year of LOSING! BELIEVE IT!
The GMEN will have about $75M-$85M in cap space and a top 5 pick AGAIN and Douche Gettleman will SCREW THIS OFFSEASON UP JUST LIKE THE PAST 2 OFFSEASONS.
