Manning and Stokley Have Worked Together Since High School


It looks like Eli Manning has reason to remenisce this week — back to his high school days. According to the Washington Times new Giants WR Brandon Stokley and Eli Manning have working together since the mid 90′s.

[Stokley] caught passes with at a summer camp back in Louisiana in the mid 1990s — Eli Manning.

“I have caught from Eli since he was in high school at the Manning passing camp,” Stokley said Thursday after finishing his first practice with his new team. “I have known Eli for a while. You could tell way back when he was going to be a special quarterback and I think he has proven that.”

Stokley is the type of receiver the Giants (0-1) have needed since losing Steve Smith to free agency last month. He is a possession specialist who plays the slot.

It seems like this move is staring to make more and more sense with each passing (pun) day.
