Eli Manning completed 12-of-16 passes for 91 yards and one interception in Saturday’s preseason dress rehearsal against the Jets.
He was also sacked twice for six yards. Antonio Cromartie anticipated Manning’s last pass of the night and took it all the way back for an easy pick-six. He was looking for James Jones on the play. It wasn’t one of Eli’s better outings, but at least he got on the same page with Odell Beckham (five catches for 31 yards) after missing him five times in last week’s win over the Jaguars. The 12-year veteran will finish the preseason 20-of-39 for 158 yards and no touchdowns. Aug 29 - 9:37 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports contract talks between the Giants and Eli Manning could extend into the regular season.

"Nobody, not even those handling the negotiations, can accurately predict an end point," beat writer Jordan Raanan said. "It doesn't appear to be any time soon." A report early this week suggested a "significant gap" still exists between the two sides. Giants owner John Mara wants to extend Manning before Week 1.

Eli Manning denied reports that he’s looking to become the highest-paid quarterback.

"The reports are all wrong," Manning said. "That's never been said, it's never come out of my mouth, I've never said it to my agent, I don't know where people are getting their information." The Giants want to extend Manning before the season, but there’s no real deadline between the sides. Manning reportedly could command Philip Rivers money ($65 million guaranteed).

Giants owner John Mara wants to reach a deal with Eli Manning before the season begins.

"We're going to try to lock him up," Mara said. "We're still having discussions with his agent and our goal is to still try to reach a contract with him, hopefully before the regular season starts or as soon thereafter as possible." A report surfaced Monday saying Eli wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player while another suggested a "significant gap" still existed in negotiations. What this flurry of reports likely means is a deal is close. It would be surprise if the two sides do not reach an agreement before the season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports contract-year QB Eli Manning wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player.

He wants more than Aaron Rodgers. More than Russell Wilson. And more than Philip Rivers. Rivers, who's a month younger than Eli, just signed a deal that includes a whopping $65 million guaranteed with the Chargers. Rodgers got $54 million guaranteed back in 2013. There's still said to be a "significant gap" in contract talks between Manning and the G-Men.

The New York Daily News reports there is a "significant gap" between contract-year QB Eli Manning's demands and what the Giants are willing to pay.

The sides originally hoped to have a deal worked out prior to camp, but negotiations have been "slower than expected." Eli is likely after a deal in the same ballpark as the four-year, $83.25 million extension Philip Rivers signed over the weekend. Eli is worth that kind of money, and it would be surprising if a deal is not reached before the regular season.

Eli Manning completed 4-of-8 passes for 22 yards and no touchdowns against the Bengals Friday night.

Manning and the first-team offense struggled, creating just 51 total yards despite playing into the second quarter. Manning did not look to be on the same page with his receivers, throwing behind both Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham on separate occasions. It was not a pretty start for Manning, but he has monster upside as he enters his second season in Ben McAdoo's offense.
Aug 14 - 8:30 PM

A Giants team source tells the New York Daily News that extension talks with Eli Manning are going "slower than expected."

There were reports the sides hoped to have a deal done before camp, but Manning is holding out for top dollar. For his part, owner John Mara is confident a deal will get done. It would be surprising if Manning headed into Week 1 without a new contract.
Jul 30 - 3:45 PM

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.

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.
Jul 23 - 3:05 PM

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.
