New York Giants Waive QB Davis Webb – Trade Rumors Were True

The New York Giants made several stunning moves over the weekend but none were as confusing as the waiving of second-year quarterback, Davis Webb.

Webb was inconsistent throughout the preseason but had the physical tools to become a solid quarterback with head coach Pat Shurmur at the helm. The Giants currently have three QBs remaining on the roster in Eli Manning, Kyle Lauletta, and Alex Tanney.

Rumors emerged before roster cuts that the New York Giants were looking to shop Davis Webb to another team. The Oakland Raiders were a landing destination that popped up frequently.

The release of Webb is truly interesting as he was a third-round pick from a year ago that turned some heads over the summer. Personally, this move makes little sense to me and should be questioned.
