EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Veteran quarterback Anthony Wright has reached an agreement on a two-year contract with the New York Giants, a person within the NFL who requested anonymity Saturday because the deal hadn't been signed.
The 31-year-old Wright, who saw limited action with the Cincinnati Bengals last season, worked out for the Giants this week.
Joel Segal, Wright's agent, did not return an e-mail seeking comment.
Entering his ninth season, Wright will compete with Jared Lorenzen and Tim Hasselbeck for the No. 2 spot behind Eli Manning. It's a job that involves a lot of preparation and little work.
Last season, Manning was the only Giants quarterback to throw a pass. Lorenzen, the backup, took a couple of snaps on quarterback sneaks, but the only other New York player to throw a pass was punter Jeff Feagles.
Wright has played with Pittsburgh, Dallas, Baltimore and Cincinnati. He has made 19 career starts, including 14 with the Ravens, seven each in 2003 and 2005. He missed the 2004 season because of surgery to repair a torn right labrum in his throwing shoulder, which he had hurt late in the 2003 season.
