New York Giants quarterback Ryan Nassib is looking forward to playing in his first game for the team during their pre-season clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ryan Nassib has said that playing in his first game for the New York Giants will be "pretty special".

The quarterback, who is poised to feature in the NFC East side's pre-season game later today, was selected by the Giants during the fourth round of this year's draft.

The 23-year-old told the team's website: "It's something that I've been dreaming about for a long time. Actually having a chance to put on a jersey and have it mean something, to be playing in a game is going to be pretty special. It's going to be a lot of fun.

"I can't thank coach enough for giving me the amount of reps that he is giving me so that I can progress and so that I can learn. I expected a lot less, I thought I was going to have to take more mental than physical reps coming in. They're giving me a great amount of reps for me to be able to learn it in action.

"It's always fun to go out and play against somebody who's not on your team. When you play against your defense, you're happy that they're doing well, but you're unhappy that we can't execute against them. At least we're playing another team. If we both are doing well, it's a good thing. But right now I'm excited to get out there and play somebody else."

The Giants face the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field this evening.
