What Is Tommy DeVito’s Salary? Exploring the Giants QB’s Contract

New York Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito continues to take the reins as Daniel Jones rehabs from his neck injury. With a new life and some fresh looks on this offense, the young QB has brought a bit of hope to a city that was desperate for some good news. As the viral sensation continues to excel, let’s look at DeVito’s salary and contract numbers for the 2023 NFL season.

What Is Tommy DeVito’s Salary?

DeVito is New York’s top option at quarterback after the franchise had Tyrod Taylor and Jones go on injured reserve in back-to-back weeks.

Taylor went down with a rib injury in the Week 8 loss to the New York Jets and could still return this year, while Jones is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL last week against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Taylor’s injury prompted the Giants to sign DeVito to the active roster after he had begun the season on the team’s practice squad.

DeVito will earn a prorated salary of roughly $44,000 per week for every game he is on the active roster for the remainder of the season, according to NorthJersey.com. The NFL’s rookie minimum salary is $750,000 for a full 17-game season, and New York had nine games remaining, along with its Week 13 bye when they signed DeVito.

DeVito initially received a $10,000 signing bonus and $10,000 base salary guarantee when he signed with New York back in April, according to NFL reporter Tom Pelissero. He could be in line to earn significantly more than that, depending on how the rest of the season goes.

Early Returns on DeVito

DeVito has seen some ups and downs through his first few appearances this season.

He came in for Taylor in the Week 8 overtime loss to the New York Jets, then relieved the injured Jones in New York’s Week 9 defeat to the Raiders. DeVito has completed 62.9 percent of his passing attempts for 697 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions.

Taylor has since returned from his injury, but the nod continues to be given to DeVito. Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters this past week that DeVito would continue to start even if Taylor was 100% ready to go. “Hopefully he’ll be ready to go. If he is, he’ll be the backup, and Tommy will be the starter.”

“I think Tommy’s done a good job,” Daboll said. “He’s improved in each of the games he’s played. I thought he played well the last two games, made good decisions, was accurate with the football, and earned the right to play.”

“I don’t think life is fair,” Taylor said when asked about DeVito being that starter over him. “I think that’s an unfair question, to be honest. I don’t know if it’s fair in this business. Some stuff happens that is out of your control. Unfortunately, this is one of them. In the grand scheme of things, this rib injury was out of my control.

“Main thing is I’ve bounced back, and I’m 100% healthy, and if the opportunity presents itself where I can go out there and perform and help this team win, then I’ll be ready to do so.”
