The New York Giants 2023 season has been an unmitigated disaster as the team is headed towards a high draft pick but for Tommy DeVito, it’s an opportunity to prove he belongs in the NFL.
DeVito, who’s in line start against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, is set to make his first NFL career start, after completing 15 of 20 passes for 175 yards after Daniel Jones suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Raiders last week in a 30-6 loss.
Despite being in the NFL and now being a starter, DeVito still hasn’t moved out of his parents house, according to a report from ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.
Per Jordan Raanan:
“It was a no-brainer for me,” DeVito told ESPN about living with his parents. “Everything that I need is there at the house. The decision was made since this level of football is stressful for a rookie, especially from the quarterback position. There is a lot going on, a lot of meetings. So everything outside of football is handled by my family.
“I don’t have to worry about laundry, what I’m eating for dinner, chicken cutlets and all that is waiting for me when I get there. My mom still makes my bed. Everything is handled for me. Honestly, I don’t even know if I could find a place closer to here than where I live. It takes me 12 minutes to get here.”
DeVito is an undrafted rookie out of Syracuse. He was behind Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor on the Giants depth chart and couldn’t imagine that he would ever be starting.. at least not in his rookie season. But here we are.
