PHILADELPHIA - It couldn’t have worked out any better for DeVonta Smith. The Eagles are on a bye and that means for the third straight week, the rookie wide receiver will head to the New York City area, only this time it won’t be to play a game like the previous two weeks when his team played the Giants and Jets. This time, it will be to see who succeeds him as the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.
The Giants added a quarterback Tuesday when they signed Clayton Thorson to their practice squad.
The other was just last season, when the organization decided that Jalen Hurts would take the QB1 spot over Wentz. But now, with Gardner Minshew in the mix, things are getting complicated…again. It’s no secret that Minshew had a solid performance in the Eagles’ Week 13 win against the Jets.
