NY Giants to work out former Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Jim Sorgi

UPDATE Sorgi's agent, Matt Brei, confirmed the workout via his Twitter account.

The backup for one Manning will now audition to be a reserve for another.

Former Colts quarterback Jim Sorgi has scheduled a visit with the Giants Monday, according to someone informed of the meeting. The person requested anonymity because the team doesn't comment on workouts.

The Giants are looking for a potential replacement for David Carr, who met with the 49ers this weekend and appeared headed to San Francisco Saturday. As of Sunday, there was no official word of a contract being finalized.

Sorgi, a sixth-round pick of the Colts in 2004, appeared in 16 games with Indianapolis over the past six seasons. He completed 99 of 156 passes for 929 yards, six touchdowns and one interception. Last December, Sorgi was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, which allowed Curtis Painter to step in - to the delight of the Jets, of course.

Obviously, he made no starts, as Peyton Manning hasn't missed a game since entering the NFL in 1998. Eli Manning also has an impressive consecutive games streak going, as he's started all 97 regular-season games (plus seven postseason games) since taking over for Kurt Warner in 2004.

Not a bad option for a back up. Better than players like Delhomme or Anderson. But to be honest it doesnt matter who we get if Eli goes down we'll be in a tight spot. With Carr I actually felt comfortable if he were to come in.
