Many thought the signing of Jason Garrett was more of a John Mara move, although Judge spoke glowingly of the long-time coach and displayed high character and low ego by signing an experienced coach to his staff that would help him make the transition to his new role.
The NY Giants continue to shake up the back end of their roster by moving from quarterback Cooper Rush who came to NYG with Jason Garrett from Dallas this offseason.
The NY Giants decided Tuesday with another ‘Jason Garrett guy’in quarterback Cooper Rush, hours after cutting another player with Garrett in Dallas in the running back field.
I’m a little surprised by the move, as I thought a longer-term answer could possibly be at the backup quarterback position after showing signs of potential when he lit up the preseason for the Dallas Cowboys in what were the only chances he had to show what he could do while stuck behind star QB Dak Prescott.
After going undrafted in the NFL Draft in 2017, Rush joined the Cowboys and was not expected to be much more than a training camp arm before going on that epic preseason run.
After initial signs to stay with Dallas for the 2020 season via a one-year, $2.1M RFA tender, it was confirmed that the Cowboys still considered a valuable asset.
In the end, the new regime finally jumped at the chance to add veteran Andy Dalton and dropped Rush from waivers.
Jason Garrett and the NY Giants immediately made a move on Rush by hiring him off waivers in May and restructured his contract to a reasonable $1.2M.
By releasing him, the NY Giants will enter a 150K season dead cap – Nothing to be concerned about.
Will the New York Giants add another quarterback to their line?
You would have to think that the NY Giants will soon consider adding another quarterback on the roster as right now the team has only and has on the roster. In fact, it’s likely they already have a think-about it and that is the reason they decided to leave Rush.
One has to wonder if this move is a real punishment from Joe Judge to Jason Garrett as he has not got off to a good start as the offensive coordinator for the NY Giants, to say the least. Big Blue currently ranks 31st in point scores and total yards on offense, so it’s possible that the brass is already losing faith in the former coach of the Cowboys.
Many believed the signing of Jason Garrett was more of a John Mara move, although Judge spoke glowingly of the long-time coach and showed high character and a low ego by signing an experienced coach to his staff that would help him make the transition to his new role.
If the NY Giants make a move at the quarterback today or soon, we’ll keep you informed because there is no way the team will move forward with only two QBs on its roster.
As long as the team does not decide to return, I’ll pretty much be good with whoever they decide to bring up to the practice squad.
