Gets 2020 option exercised
QBNew York Giants
March 3, 2020
The Giants have exercised the 2020 option on Tanney's contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After serving as the No. 3 quarterback last season, Tanney may get an opportunity to compete for the No. 2 job in 2020. He's 32 years old and has zero NFL starts to his name, so it won't come as any surprise if the Giants sign a superior veteran to put behind Daniel Jones.

In some dictionaries, you may see Tanney's picture next to the term "journeyman". Between his entrance into the league in 2012 and his initial signing with the Giants in May of 2018, Tanney donned seven different NFL uniforms. Tanney re-signed with the G-Men in March, stabilizing what has otherwise been a career spent bouncing from city to city. He isn't expected to field snaps in a meaningful regular-season situation this year, with Eli Manning and Daniel Jones far ahead of the potential third-string options.
Tanney is known more for a 2011 trick shot video from his time at Monmouth than any of his accomplishments on the field. Building on his career total of 99 passing yards won't be easy with Marcus Mariota entrenched as the starter and veteran Matt Cassel heavily favored to win the backup job in Tennessee.
Tanney will almost certainly resume his role as Tennessee’s third-string quarterback, as his chances of beating out Matt Cassel for the backup job aren’t much better than they were last year against Zach Mettenberger. Unless starter Marcus Mariota and Cassel both get hurt, the Youtube trick-shot sensation won’t be adding to his highlight package on the field.
Some may remember Tanney for his trick shot video at Monmouth, but his YouTube fame hasn't translated to any success in the NFL. Just making the Titans roster will prove challenging with Marcus Mariota, Zach Mettenberger and Charlie Whitehurst all firmly ahead of Tanney on the quarterback depth chart.
