The New York Giants have re-signed quarterback Curtis Painter.
Painter, 28, spent last season as Eli Manning’s backup tossing two interceptions in 16 pass attempts when he did get on the field.
There is a chance that Ryan Nassib could move ahead of him on the depth chart.
QB Curtis Painter will re-sign with the Giants after the start of the league year.

Thus far the reaction of Giants fans on social media has been sarcastic and confused. The reality is the Giants offense goes though Manning so it should not matter who is his backup.
