Backup quarterback Curtis Painter is expected to re-sign with the Giants (Garafolo, March 11).
Painter signed a one-year deal to come to the Giants before the 2013 season.
John Fennelly, Lead WriterThis is simply an insurance move for the Giants just in case Ryan Nassib craps out. Painter is not a great backup by any means, but should Nassib fail to progress, the club needs some assurance they have someone competent.
Why not David Carr, you ask? No idea. He’s without a job these days and it’s baffling why the Giants keep choosing Painter over Carr.
