I’m obviously excited knowing I’ll be a Giant for a long time, Manning said in a statement. This is where I got started and where I want to finish. I still have the same mentality. My goal is to earn this contract and do my best and keep trying to win championships for the Giants.
Once the talks got going and we were very close, I definitely wanted to try to get it done before the season, so I could just think about football, It’s good to have that over with, so I can work on playing football and winning football games.
The contact places him among the other top quarterbacks. Manning’s $21 million average per year salary falls behind Russell Wilson at $21.9 million and ahead of Phillip Rivers $20.8 million contact.
“I think that there would be no doubt for all of us to have that behind us,” coach Tom Coughlin said, “particularly Eli and his family, to have that behind them and no longer have questions about that every day or every time he appears. I think that’s a good thing.”
Back to business for both Eli Manning & Tom Coughlin.
