ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants and contract-year QB Eli Manning are aiming to work out an extension before training camp.
Talks have reportedly intensified in recent weeks with the two sides acknowledging Ben Roethlisberger's deal may be a template. Big Ben signed a four-year, $87.4 million extension earlier this offseason. Even if a deal isn't reached this summer, the Giants will have the franchise tag option next year. Jul 24 - 9:03 AM

Eli Manning's player rep admits he'd "like to know" when the Giants are going to get serious about a long-term extension.

Agent Tom Condon had previously expressed confidence a deal would get done, but is apparently getting impatient. Manning is headed into his age-34 season, but coming off a renaissance 2014. Considering the weakening state of quarterback league-wide, it would be stunning if the G-Men didn't get Manning locked up in short order.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants hope to finalize an Eli Manning contract extension sometime in the next few weeks.

Manning is entering the final season of the seven-year, $106.9 million contract he signed in August of 2009. He's now likely angling for something around the five-year, $99 million extension Ben Roethlisberger signed with the Steelers four months ago. That deal contained $64 million guaranteed, including a $31 million signing bonus. Manning, who will turn 35 in January, hasn't missed a game since his rookie year and set career-highs in completion percentage (63.1), yards (4,410) and QBR (70.93) last season.

Agent Tom Condon is confident the Giants will sign Eli Manning to a long-term extension.

"The quarterbacks always get done," said Condon. "You know you're going to go in and it's going to get done. I'm sure at the appropriate time it'll happen." Neither side has made much headway in negotiations but it's hard to envision Manning playing anywhere else. Manning will be the second highest-paid quarterback in the NFL this season behind Drew Brees.

Eli Manning has shown improved arm strength this offseason.

"It is lively, very lively," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He has worked hard on that." Despite playing in a West Coast system, Manning finished behind only Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, and Philip Rivers in 20-plus yard attempts last season. Improving his arm strength should create more downfield plays for Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle. Manning has a good chance to take another step forward in his second year under OC Ben McAdoo.

OC Ben McAdoo said the Giants' offense is moving much faster this offseason.

Center Weston Richburg has been getting the offense to the line quickly and Eli Manning is moving better than he did a year ago when he was coming off ankle surgery. Teams that work fast usually end up running more plays and that volume can help fantasy owners. Manning quietly had a great season last year and has a chance to be even better in 2015.

Eli Manning's interceptions during OTA practices "have almost completely disappeared" during his second year in OC Ben McAdoo's system.

Per beat writer Jordan Raanan, "it wasn't uncommon" for Eli to throw three to four picks per practice last spring. This year, Manning has been far more efficient, even without Odell Beckham (hamstring) and Victor Cruz (knee) involved in workouts. Manning enters his contract year coming off a red-hot finish to 2014, averaging 284 passing yards with 27 TDs over his final 14 games.

The Giants have engaged in no long-term contract talks with Eli Manning, who is entering the final year of his deal.

"No discussions yet," Manning said on Monday. "I don’t know if there will be or not." The starter of 167 consecutive games, Eli is believed to be entering a "prove-it year" with the Giants, in addition to his second season of OC Ben McAdoo's system. The New York Daily News suggests the Giants may move on from 34-year-old Manning if they miss the playoffs for a fourth straight year. The franchise-tag number for quarterbacks is well over $20 million.
Jun 9 - 12:09 AM

Eli Manning said he feels more comfortable in the second year of OC Ben McAdoo’s system.

"This year, I understand the concepts. I’m concentrating on the footwork, mechanics and timing of everything," Manning said. "A lot of it is stuff I wasn’t able to do last year [coming off ankle surgery]." Manning posted a 30:14 TD/INT ratio in his first season under McAdoo, completing a career-high 63 percent of his passes. With a full season of Odell Beckham and entering a contract year, Manning has potential to improve on his bounceback 2014.
Jun 6 - 2:27 PM

Eli Manning called his contract situation "not something I’m going to argue about or make a fuss about."

Eli is entering the final year of his deal. He's owed a $17 million salary in 2015. Manning indicated he's engaged in no contract talks with the Giants. "Nothing has been brought up," Eli said Sunday. "I haven't made a big deal about it." Eli flourished in first-year OC Ben McAdoo's offense last season, posting a 30:14 TD-to-INT ratio and career-best 63.1 completion rate. He turned 34 in January.

Eli Manning wants his interceptions in the "single digits" in 2015.

It's a very Eli Manning goal, and an unrealistic one. Since taking over as the Giants' full-time starter in 2005, Manning has averaged 17.6 picks per season, never throwing fewer than 14. Manning tossed 14 interceptions in 2014, a highly-acceptable number for someone who attempted 601 passes.
Apr 20 - 1:41 PM

Eli Manning expects to take the Giants' offense to "another level" in his second year in OC Ben McAdoo's system.

"This year will be a much easier transition, knowing that we have been through so much of it already," Manning said. "It's definitely a different starting point. I feel good about it." Manning is coming off a renaissance 2014 where he finished as the overall fantasy QB8. Especially with Odell Beckham a year older and wiser, Manning enters 2015 as a QB1.
Mar 31 - 3:43 PM

Sources tell ESPN New York the Giants are comfortable letting Eli Manning play out the final year of his contract.

The two sides recently had conversations about an extension, but are no closer to an agreement. It's not a surprise, as the Giants are in a healthy salary cap situation and word is Manning wants more than the five-year, $99M deal Ben Roethlisberger got last week. Per ESPN New York, the team doesn't appear ready to make that kind of commitment at this point. If Eli uses Ben McAdoo's effective scheming and a plethora of weaponry successfully in 2015, a deal will get done ahead of the 2016 season.
Mar 23 - 7:12 AM

Giants owner John Mara said "there's nothing to report" regarding a possible Eli Manning contract extension.

His contract expires at the end of 2015. Ben Roethlisberger's recent five-year, $108 million signing with Pittsburgh could serve as a benchmark for Manning in contract discussions. Manning was quietly very effective last season, completing a career-high 63.1 percent of his passes. With Victor Cruz returning from injury and Odell Beckham Jr. on the cusp of superstardom, Manning will enter his 12th season with a wealth of quality receivers.
Mar 20 - 10:16 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano believes the Giants could let Eli Manning play out his contract year.

An extension could lower Eli's $17 million salary, but the Giants have $25M in cap room and don't feel the need. Manning is coming off a bounce-back year after leading the NFL in turnovers in 2013. He's expected to command $20 million annually on a long-term deal. The Giants could be better off waiting until Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers get their new contracts to extend Manning.
