QB Sorgi to work out for Giants
By Matt Mosley
Peyton Manning's longtime backup in Indianapolis, Jim Sorgi, is scheduled to work out for the Giants on Monday, his agent Matt Brei told ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky earlier this afternoon. Sorgi was a sixth-round pick by the Colts in '04 and he's appeared in 16 games.
The Colts released him over the weekend for financial reasons. With Giants unrestricted free-agent David Carr meeting with other teams, it makes sense that New York would meet with another veteran. Their only other option as a backup is second-year quarterback Rhett Bomar.
Sorgi's spent six seasons working under Peyton, so backing up Eli shouldn't be that big of an adjustment. The Giants will quickly try to determine how much ability Sorgi has at this point in his career. But all things equal, I think New York's about ready to move on without Carr.
