  Bengals | Could look at Jim Sorgi and Bruce Gradkowski    Sat Jul 16, 04:52 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals could show interest in New York Giants impending free-agent QB Jim Sorgi or Oakland Raiders impending free-agent QB Bruce Gradkowski as a veteran quarterback that could be the primary backup.

Footballguys view: This would point even more to rookie Andy Dalton as the opening day starter. It also indicates a lack of trust in Jordan Palmer or Dan LeFevour to emerge as a backup quality QB.

  Bengals | Could add veteran QB behind Dalton    Sun May 8, 04:11 PM

Joe Reedy, from the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports the Bengals could add a veteran QB for insurance behind rookie Andy Dalton. Reedy believes Rex Grossman, Jim Sorgi, and Charlie Frye are the most realistic options.

Footballguys view: All three veterans would know they're only backup options behind rookie Andy Dalton. Grossman and Frye have starting experience, while Sorgi has been playing as a backup behind Peyton and Eli Manning for years now. With Carson Palmer likely retired or traded, Jordan Palmer may also be on his way out the door. That would leave Cincinnati with only Dalton and Dan LeFevour on the roster.

  Giants | Rhett Bomar getting closer to No. 2 QB job    Fri Aug 27, 01:36 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin indicated that QB Rhett Bomar has closed the gap between himself and QB Jim Sorgi for the No. 2 quarterback job, reports Ralph Vacchiano, of the New York Daily News. 'Oh, he's improved, he's done a nice job,' Coughlin said of Bomar. 'He's still got a ways to go, but he's in the driver's seat as far as the guy who is taking all the snaps.'

Footballguys view: Bomar made some mistakes as the Giants starter, but he didn't hang his head and kept trying to make plays out on the field. We like his development so far and there's a chance he could beat out Jim Sorgi for the backup job behind Eli Manning.

  Giants | Jim Sorgi out 2-3 weeks    Thu Aug 19, 04:27 PM

New York Giants QB Jim Sorgi (shoulder) suffered a torn capsule and partial dislocation of his right throwing shoulder and will miss the rest of the preseason, reports the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano. This injury is not related to the partially torn labrum Sorgi was already playing with, and if it had been, the Giants likely would have insisted Sorgi undergo season-ending shoulder surgery. One source familiar with Sorgi's injury said the Giants don't believe this injury is as severe as the torn shoulder capsule that ended Miami Dolphins QB Chad Pennington's season last year.

Footballguys view: With Sorgi out, and Manning sitting this week, the Giants will turn to the gunslinger Rhett Bomar in their preseason game this week against the Steelers.

  Colts | Sorgi looks solid in only preseason performance    Fri Sep 4, 12:50 AM

The Associated Press reports Indianapolis Colts QB Jim Sorgi (hamstring) was 11-for-19 for 119 yards with a touchdown pass in his only preseason game of the year Thursday, Sept. 3. Sorgi missed most of training camp with a pulled hamstring, and QB Curtis Painter's performance while Sorgi was out raised questions about who would be the No. 2 quarterback.

Footballguys view: The Colts have rarely carried three quarterbacks, but if they cut Curtis Painter he might not make it through to the practice squad.

  Colts | How many QBs to keep?    Wed Sep 2, 11:49 AM

Tom James, from the Tribune-Star, asks how many quarterbacks will the Colts keep, two or three? When it comes to the number of quarterbacks that the Indianapolis Colts will end up keeping during the regular season, that's the question that head coach Jim Caldwell and team president Bill Polian must ultimately answer.

Footballguys view: The Colts have rarely kept three quarterbacks on the roster during Peyton Manning's tenure, but that could change depending on the play of Curtis Painter. The rookie from Purdue has been efficient and effective in the preseason while Jim Sorgi has been out with a hamstring injury. Because of the way he's been playing it may be difficult for the Colts to cut him and slide him through to the practice squad. Painter and Sorgi will get extended playing time in the Colts preseason finale, and that could help the team make a final decision.
