The Reason Behind Giants QB Tommy DeVito’s Decision to Live with His Parents

The Giants were forced to start undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito at quarterback due to injuries to Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor. Despite a rough start in his first game, DeVito showed improvement in the next game, prompting the Giants to name him the starter for the rest of the season. DeVito’s backstory of living with his parents in New Jersey and his lowly contract as a starting quarterback sparked interest. He signed a three-year, $2.7 million deal with the Giants and will earn $750,000 as a base salary during the 2023 season. His decision to live with his parents could also be financially motivated due to the high housing prices in New Jersey. With eight games left in the season, DeVito has the opportunity to prove himself as a capable NFL quarterback.
