New York Giants: Eli Manning Extension Getting Finalized


Eli Manning is going to be a New York Giant for the rest of his career.

New York Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning is reportedly finalizing a contract worth up to $84 million dollars over four years as reported by Ian Rapoport. $65 million is supposed to be guaranteed. Supposedly, the deal could be finalized as soon as Friday.

Manning may not be the NFL’s highest paid player, but he is pretty close to it. If the deal is signed, he could be making $21 million a year. That is very close to Aaron Rodgers $22 million a year.

The Giants were very smart to get this deal ironed out before the start of the season. This way Manning won’t be a lame duck. To the benefit of the Giants, if Manning thrives in Ben McAdoo’s system like he did last year, he would be asking for much more money.

Manning will have nothing on his mind but winning the first Monday night football game of the season against the Dallas Cowboys. This couldn’t have happened at a better time for both Manning and the Giants’ organization.

Manning may not be considered a top NFL quarterbacks by a lot of NFL analysts, but he sure is being paid like one. The Giants’ organization obviously thinks he’s is one of the best in the business and that’s why he’s about to sign a contract of this magnitude.

This year, Manning is going to prove all of his doubters wrong. I personally believe Manning could be in the running to be the NFL MVP with the offensive pieces around him.
