  Giants | NYG could carry two QBs on roster    Sun Jun 16, 11:16 AM

The New York Giants may decide to carry only two quarterbacks on their 2019 roster if the coaching staff is convinced that QB Daniel Jones would be able to capably fill in for QB Eli Manning when called upon. Previously, it had been believed that Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney would be fighting for the No. 3 quarterback spot on the roster but there's a possibility that neither player will make the team. If the Giants opt to keep three QBs, Tanney is believed to have a slight edge over Lauletta.

  Giants | NYG unlikely to keep four quarterbacks    Sun Sep 2, 11:17 AM

The New York Giants currently have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster but are not expected to enter Week 1 with more than three players at that position, according to a source. QBs Davis Webb, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are in competition to back up Eli Manning but Tom Rock of Newsday believes that Webb is the most likely candidate to be traded or released because he was brought in by a previous regime.

  Giants | Alex Tanney signs with Giants    Wed May 2, 12:23 PM

Free-agent QB Alex Tanney (Titans) announced on Twitter Wednesday, May 2, that he has signed with the New York Giants. Terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tanney, best known for his 'trick shot' videos on YouTube, is going to be a camp arm for the Giants. They've got Eli Manning starting with Davis Webb and rookie Kyle Lauletta competing for the pecking order on the depth chart.

  Titans | Alex Tanney could win backup job    Sun Jul 9, 09:43 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Alex Tanney will have a chance to compete with QB Matt Cassel for the backup quarterback job during training camp, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, and while Wyatt believes Cassel's experience gives him an edge, he said it is possible Tennessee decides to keep three quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: A lot of teams are keeping three quarterbacks now for developmental purposes. If the Titans see any potential in Tanney, they will find a spot for him even if he can't beat out Cassel to back up Marcus Mariota.

  Titans | Alex Tanney delivering in OTAs    Sun Jun 4, 09:19 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Alex Tanney has looked good during OTAs, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, and Wyatt believes Tanney will benefit from the extra reps created by the injury to QB Matt Cassel (thumb).

Footballguys view: Hit up YouTube and check out Alex Tanney as a trick-shot quarterback. He's amazing when it comes to throwing a football into a trash can from the fourth floor, but playing NFL quarterback is a much different skill set. Undrafted out of Monmouth in 2012, Tanney has spent time with seven teams during his pro career. Once Cassel is healthy, Tanney will go back to being third on the depth chart and is no lock for the 53-man roster.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota placed on IR    Tue Dec 27, 05:24 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 27. QB Alex Tanney was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad in a subsequent move.

Footballguys view: Matt Cassel will be the starting quarterback for the Titans in Week 17. Mariota is going to have a metal plate inserted into his leg, and he's likely to miss all the OTAs and workouts in the spring. However, it looks like a return for training camp is very likely.

  Titans | Matt Cassel officially named starter    Mon Dec 26, 04:54 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Matt Cassel was name the starter for Week 17 by head coach Mike Mularkey. Mularkey was noncommittal on QB Alex Tanney possibly playing.

Footballguys view: Tanney is the best trick-shot QB in the league...seriously, look him up on YouTube. However, he doesn't have the experience that Cassel does. Cassel should be able to make the Texans defense a strong fantasy or DFS play in Week 17, but we seriously doubt his ability to move the offense with consistency or potency.

  Titans | Tennessee adds Alex Tanney    Mon Dec 21, 06:07 PM

The Tennessee Titans signed QB Alex Tanney from the Indianapolis Colts practice squad Monday, Dec. 21. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: With Marcus Mariota done for the season, Tanney will serve as a backup behind Zach Mettenberger. If you've got some time to kill, then search for Tanney's trick-shot videos on YouTube. He can make some incredible throws, but Tanney has no fantasy value...even in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues.

  Titans | Eight signed to futures deals    Mon Dec 29, 07:34 PM

The Tennessee Titans re-signed CB Ri'Shard Anderson, LB Nate Askew, OG Justin McCray, OT William Poehls, RB Lache Seastrunk, LB Yawin Smallwood, LB Chaz Sutton and QB Alex Tanney to futures contracts Monday, Dec. 29. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Seastrunk is the player for fantasy owners in super super deep dynasty leagues to monitor. He's an explosive athlete who can fly by defenders. Originally a sixth-round pick by Washington in the 2014 NFL draft, Seastrunk bounced from Washington to Carolina to Tennessee in his first season as a pro.

The Tennessee Titans placed TE Brett Brackett (knee) on Reserve/Injured and signed TE Matthew Mulligan Tuesday, Dec. 16. Free-agent QB Alex Tanney (Buccaneers) was also added to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Tanney is the trick-shot QB! Look him up on YouTube...it's certainly worth your time. However, he's not worth monitoring in any fantasy league--even super deep dynasty leagues.
