While Eli Manning recovers from ankle surgery, the quarterback position has become a focal point for the New York Giants. According to Kim Jones of the NFL Network, Matt Flynn and Josh Freeman will be working out for the team.

According to recent reports, the Giants front office is already somewhat concerned about Manning‘s long-term future with them. However, the interest in Flynn and Freeman makes sense because it gives the Giants another veteran arm in camp while Manning continues to recover from surgery. It will also present an opportunity to potentially upgrade the quarterback position on their depth chart. Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib currently are the other options at quarterback, Nassib is almost a definite to be on the team after being drafted last year. The Giants could have Painter compete with either Flynn or Freeman to be the third member of the depth chart.
Freeman is a former first round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be an intriguing possibility to be a backup for the Giants. He’s coming off a forgettable 2013 when he was cut in mid-season by Tampa Bay due to off-field concerns and conflict with since-fired coach Greg Schiano. Freeman was signed by the Vikings and started just one game, an dreadful outing on Monday Night Football ironically against the Giants.
Flynn could be an ideal fit for the Giants, he knows new offensive coordinator Bob McAdoo from Green Bay. This could be beneficial to the Giants as McAdoo installs his offensive gameplan.
