Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to miss Week 15, so Thorson adds some depth behind Colt McCoy on Sunday. 

Thorson, 25, was selected in the fifth round by the Eagles in 2019 out of Northwestern. He signed a four-year, $2,793,320 contract and was set to make a base salary of $495,000 when the Eagles waived him coming out of the preseason.

The Cowboys later signed Thorson to their practice squad. Dallas brought him back on a futures deal in December of last year but cut him loose coming out of training camp. 

He signed on with the Giants’ practice squad in late September. 

During his four-year college career at Northwestern, Thorson threw for 10,731 yards while completing 58.4 percent of his passes to go along with 61 touchdowns and 45 interceptions over the course of 53 games.
