Giants coach Pat Shurmur: 'We have a starter in Eli'
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning didn't impress on the first day of organized team activities on Monday, completing just 1 of 6 passes with two interceptions, but his performance did nothing to change coach Pat Shurmur's mind about his QB depth chart.
"Eli Manning looks really good. ... He's throwing the ball well and looks strong physically," Shurmur said.
The Giants also got a look at rookie Daniel Jones, the No. 6 pick in the NFL Draft.
"At the quarterback position, we have a starter in Eli and we have guys behind him, specifically Daniel Jones, who need to do everything they can to be ready to play Week 1. That's where we're at," Shurmur told reporters.
Shurmur said Jones will get reps with the second and third-string offense, but that Alex Tanney and Kyle Lauletta also will have some chances. Tanney was Manning's backup most of last season.
