The Giants have signed quarterback Curtis Painter, one of 13 players inked to reserve/future contracts.

Painter is Peyton Manning's former backup in Indianapolis, where he started eight games in 2011 when Manning was out. Painter might have an opportunity to back up Eli Manning, with David Carr set to become one of the Giants' unrestricted free agents.
