When the New York Giants signed quarterback Jake Fromm off of the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad earlier this week, they knew they were getting a quality backup. They also knew they’d be getting some additional information on their upcoming opponents.
As a member of the Bills over the first 12 weeks of the season, Fromm had the opportunity to go up against the Miami Dolphins twice. And while he didn’t appear in either game, two full weeks of film breakdown and review helped Fromm learn a little something about Brian Flores’ team.
“(Fromm) has been great for the room. He came from Buffalo having already played the Dolphins two times, so he’s had a few things to say here and there. But he’s been a great addition to the room already,” Mike Glennon told reporters on Friday.
Fromm, who was told he’d likely dress for Sunday’s game the moment he was signed, admits to dumping as much knowledge as he can in the quarterbacks room.
“I’ve been trying to help them out in the QB room. Just trying to share what I do know just from being on the sideline and playing them twice, Fromm said. “Trying to help out.”
Not only does Fromm have experience against the Dolphins, he also has experience with their quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa.
Fromm, of course, led Georgia into battle against Alabama and Tagovailoa back in the 2017-2018 National Championship Game. The Crimson Tide ultimately walked away victorious in that one.
“It doesn’t haunt me in any way. Obviously, wish it would have turned out a little differently. It was a great play by them,” Fromm said. “It was a great game. Would have meant a lot to me and the state of Georgia, but you know, can’t change the past and just excited to be here now and look forward to the game.”
How much Fromm’s intel helps the ailing Giants on Sunday remains to be seen, but it certainly can’t hurt. New York is in desperate need of whatever advantage they can get with so many stars out and others hurt.
