Davis Webb says Ben McAdoo promised him starts with the New York Giants last season that never came.

McAdoo, who was fired last season, broke Eli Manning's streak of 210 consecutive starts in the second half of the season but instead of going with Webb, Geno Smith started.

"Hey, the next three weeks, you're in," Webb says McAdoo told him.

Webb never got a chance to prove himself as the Giants played out a lost season.

"So I was ready to rock 'n' roll, and I was excited," he said. "But at the same time, that was a rough day because Eli's been the best teammate I've ever had. So I was really hurting for him."
