EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The QB competition narrows down as the New York Giants announce the release of QB Josh Freeman. As a result, the Giants were awarded former Bears OT Roger Gaines. 

Freeman, 26, signed a 1-year deal with New York back in April. Giants signed Freeman shortly after QB Eli Manning underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery, hoping that Josh could be a valuable backup. 

It was expected to be a competition for the backup role with Freeman, Ryan Nissab and Curtis Painter. However, according to NJ.com, Nissab took the primary second-team snaps. NJ.com also notes that Freeman did a play incorrectly and was quickly subbed out by Painter. 

Its likely that Ryan Nissab will be Eli’s backup this 2014 season. Nissab said last week that he wasn’t concerned about the potential quarterback fight for the 2nd spot.
