Will the New York Giants regret moving on from Kyle Lauletta? There’s some debate around the subject after, following an improved preseason, Lauletta was waived by the team after they failed to find a trade partner to get something in return for last season’s backup quarterback.

Lauletta will at the very least be another name on the list of wasted quarterbacks for the Giants alongside Davis Webb, after the team spend a mid round draft pick on Lauletta last year only to move on from him completely the very next season after drafting Daniel Jones at number six overall.

So where is Lauletta going after being waived from the Giants?

It turns out that the Eagles, another team in the very same division, have picked Lauletta up – not on the main squad but on the practice squad for now.

That’s probably not where Lauletta was hoping to end up this offseason but it’s not the worst outcome in the world, either. Players have made it back from the practice squad to end up on the active roster with good play and rather than go out of the league entirely after a terrible first season, Lauletta has a chance here to do that.

Lauletta will leave the Giants only having played in one regular season game, replacing Eli Manning in the second half of a blowout of the Washington Redskins. In that game, Lauletta threw an interception and failed to complete a pass, and the statline would go down as his only one of the season as Lauletta failed to get into another regular season game since then.

Will Lauletta find more success with the Eagles? Possibly, possibly not. The Giants, however, have one less problem off their hands as they can finally move on from the Kyle Lauletta situation and focus on the development of their current backup, Daniel Jones.
