The New York Giants are going to need a viable backup just in case something goes wrong with Eli Manning in the 2014 NFL season. Manning just had ankle surgery and will be out for six weeks, so who knows what could go wrong. With that said, New York may be looking at Josh Freeman and Matt Flynn as possible options.

The New York Daily News reports that the Giants could sign Freeman or Flynn to be the backup quarterback for the team along with providing insurance for Manning.

"Freeman, the former Bucs starting quarterback who was traded to the Vikings last year, may work out for the Giants early next week, a source confirmed, though nothing official has been set up yet," NYDN writes.

"And the Daily News has learned the Giants have also reached out to Flynn -- who spent the end of last season in Green Bay where he worked with former Packers quarterbacks coach and new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo -- and may schedule a workout with him as well."

Having Manning will be crucial in the offseason, since he must learn the new offensive system under McAdoo. It will be weird seeing Freeman or Flynn learning it before him.
