Updated: May 18
Ryan Nassib called New York, home for the majority of his semi-pro and professional football career from 2008-2015.
Playing college football at Syracuse University, he was a redshirt freshman who rode the bench behind Cameron Dantley and had his spring-announced starting job changed to second string after the transfer of Greg Paulus. It was not until the 2010 season that Nassib would get the starting job, he would then go on to have an explosive offensive season.
Nassib would go on to throw at least one touchdown pass in 11-games as he tied for fourth on Syracuse's single-season record list with 19 touchdown passes. The 2011 season would be no different for Nassib as he set the Syracuse single-season records for completion (259) and passing yards (2,685) while also tying for touchdown passes in one season (22).
Ryan Nassib would put his name in the 2013 NFL Draft, he would go on to be selected in the fourth round as the 110th pick that was held by the New York Giants organization. Nassib would be the primary backup QB for Eli Manning who was slowly closing in on the end of his hall of fame career.
Nassib would make his NFL debut in 2014 during a week 4 game against the Washington Redskins in what would result as a blowout 45-14 win for the big blue team.
On December 23rd, 2015, Nassib made his one and only appearance of the season in which he would go and throw his first career touchdown, a pass over to Wide Receiver Myles White. Nassib would finish the game 5-for-5 passing with 68 yards and a touchdown to give him a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on the day.
That would be all she wrote for Ryan Nassib and his NFL career as he was placed on the Giants’ IR in 2016 with an elbow injury. Nassib would not play a single game again with the New York team after they let his contract expire.
On June 12th, 2017, Nassib signed with the New Orleans Saints to be one of their four quarterbacks. He would never play a game with them as he was released in September of the same year. After the release from the Saints, Nassib would be picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars several days later, The Jaguars signed the free agent to be the QB2 and possible replacement starter to the fastly fading Blake Bortles. The 27-year-old would stay on the team for several weeks only to be released in October of the same year as well.
Ryan Nassib has not played in a single NFL game since 2015 and has not been on a team since 2017. He is technically an unsigned free agent at 32-years-old as he has not officially announced retirement. Nassib would have a completion percentage of 90% on his career (9-for-10 passing) with 128 yards and a touchdown along with a QBR of 152.1 in five games played.
