Davis Webb is staying in New York, but will don the green and white this season as a member of the Jets' practice squad.
The Giants decided to part ways with their 2017 third-round pick over the weekend, and many saw it as a shock considering he was supposed to be slated behind Eli Manning as the backup this year. However, head coach Pat Shurmur and the rest in the organization felt otherwise.
Webb admitted Tuesday after his first practice with the Jets that he didn't agree with the direction the Giants went. And neither did his teammates.
"I didn't need a reason. They made a decision," Webb told reporters in the Jets' locker room after practice. "I didn't agree with it, I don't think many people did -- especially my teammates. But, at the same time, I've moved on and I wish them nothing but the best."
It was short-lived, but Webb will miss a lot from the organization that gave him his first chance in the NFL.
"My teammates over there are great," he said. "I'm going to miss the training staff, the weight room staff, the PR department, everybody over there. I'm going to miss the janitor the most, Jose, and I'm going to miss those guys.
"But, here I am. I'm a New York Jet and I'm excited to be here."
