The Giants will carry only two quarterbacks into the season, counting on DeVito to make it onto their practice squad after being waived.
DeVito is a rookie quarterback who went undrafted after playing for Syracuse from 2017 to 2021 and then finishing his college career at Illinois
DeVito threw for 2,650 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2022, but also threw four interceptions and rushed for six scores.
DeVito was the third-string quarterback this summer, behind starters Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor
Taylor ultimately prevailed against DeVito to secure the backup quarterback role behind Jones.DeVito put out a valiant effort in the preseason in an attempt to earn a spot on the final roster
In three preseason games, he threw for 453 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, completing 43 of 63 passes
This summer, DeVito showed signs of being a promising young quarterback, which has New York wanting to add him to their practice squad.
