NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The New York Giants are either in the market for an insurance policy or a high-profile practice player.

Perhaps it’s both.

The team could work out free-agent quarterbacks Josh Freeman and Matt Flynn beginning next week, according to the New York Daily News. The Giants are reportedly interested in bringing in a third quarterback to help run offseason workouts while Eli Manning rehabs from arthroscopic ankle surgery.

Bleacher Report first reported an upcoming workout with Freeman, though the Daily News said nothing has been officially scheduled. New York “also reached out” to Flynn, the former Packers backup who worked with new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo in Green Bay, the Daily News reported.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released Freeman, their first-round pick in 2009, after a volatile first month of the 2013 season. He landed in Minnesota, had a brutal Week 7 start against the Giants, and never took the field again.

The Giants don’t envision either quarterback as a starter, the Daily News reported. Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib, selected in the fourth round of last year’s draft, sit behind Manning on the depth chart.

Manning said in a statement prior to Thursday’s procedure that doctors expect him to begin running in six weeks. Manning’s injury occurred during New York’s season finale against the Washington Redskins, the Giants said.

“I’m looking forward to the start of the offseason program on the 21st,” said Manning, who added he was still experiencing discomfort after rehabbing the sprain. “I will be in the weight room and in the meeting rooms so we can all learn the new offense. I got some good work in this week at Duke, and I think it’s smart to get this procedure done now so the ankle isn’t an ongoing issue. I’m eager to get to work with our new offensive coaches and system.”
