Eli Manning said he and the Giants have not discussed his place in the organization beyond 2018.
Manning is under contract through 2019, but the Giants could save $17 million against the cap by releasing him next spring. That makes this season something of a make-or-break situation, especially if New York drafts a quarterback early. "This league, it's one year at a time," Manning said. "I need to go out there and play well this year, and that's all I'm looking forward to." Manning averaged 6.1 yards per attempt last season while leading the second-worst offense in the league.

Speaking at the NFL Combine, Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he believes Eli Manning has multiple years left as a quality starter.

Eli's yards-per-attempt average has declined in four straight years -- his 6.1 YPA mark from 2017 was Manning's lowest since his 2004 rookie year -- but both Shurmur and new GM Dave Gettleman have steadfastly supported Eli as their starter going forward. There are growing indications the Giants will not draft a quarterback at No. 2 overall, instead opting for Penn State RB Saquon Barkley or Notre Dame OL Quenton Nelson.

Eli Manning believes he will be the Giants' starting quarterback in 2018.

Manning's beliefs stem from coach Pat Shurmur reportedly assuring Manning he'll be the starter in 2018. This would be a surprising move as the 37-year-old is coming off one of the worst seasons in his career and the Giants possess the second overall pick in the 2018 draft. There's a possibility for Manning to be a bridge quarterback if the Giants decide to select a quarterback with their first-round pick.
Feb 3 - 10:53 AM

Eli Manning confirmed he'll be back with the Giants in 2018.

"Yeah, obviously knowing I will be a New York Giant, that helped. Been told that, so that’s a starting point," said Manning. The Giants are committed to Manning for next season, though the veteran said he'd understand if the team selected a quarterback early in the upcoming draft. "Hey, whatever they draft I’m fine with," said the 37-year-old. "It’s about me doing my job and that’s playing quarterback." USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen could be in play for the Giants at No. 2 overall.
Feb 2 - 1:22 PM

Giants GM Dave Gettleman echoed new coach Pat Shurmur's Friday vote of confidence in Eli Manning.

"I still saw a quarterback that knew what he was doing, that had plenty of arm talent and can win games," said Gettleman, referring to his 2017 tape study of Eli. Manning's yards-per-attempt averages have dropped steadily in the past four years (7.3 > 7.2 > 6.7 > 6.1), but he appears to have the backing of both the Giants' new GM and head coach. After attending Friday's presser, longtime beat reporter Ralph Vacchiano came away believing, "it’s clear the Eli Manning Era with the Giants isn’t nearly as close to its end as it seemed two months ago."
Jan 26 - 1:40 PM

New Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he thinks Eli Manning has "years left" and is looking forward to working with the 37-year-old.

This coincides with what GM Dave Gettleman said earlier in the week. Fired coach Ben McAdoo seemed to be pushing Manning out the door late in the season, but the fans revolted and McAdoo was fired a couple weeks later. The new regime seems to be all in on Manning for 2018 at the very least. Manning surely isn't the worst of the Giants' problems, but he's no longer a top-end quarterback in this league. Maybe an overhauled offensive line can keep Manning upright, give him time, and allow Manning to keep going another 2-3 years.
Jan 26 - 11:19 AM

Giants GM Dave Gettleman "reaffirmed his desire" for Eli Manning to return as the team's starting quarterback in 2018.

Gettleman said he had a "great" meeting with Manning earlier this month. Among the topics they discussed were remaking the offensive line while also taking steps to improve the running game. Despite the vote of confidence, Gettleman told Manning the team's personnel department will "dig in" on evaluating the upcoming quarterback class while taking a deeper look at third-round rookie Davis Webb. Pat Shurmur also had good things to say about Manning when he interviewed for the Giants' head-coaching job.

Eli Manning completed 10-of-28 passes for 132 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

It is a fittingly disappointing end to a disappointing season for the two-time Super Bowl MVP. Manning failed to top 3,500 yards for the first time since 2008 while tossing fewer than 20 touchdowns for just the third time in his career – one of those was a rookie season in which he played only nine games. Even worse, Manning’s consecutive start streak ended at 210 games when the Giants uselessly started Geno Smith in Week 13. In better news for him, Manning’s future in New York looks much more secure with new GM Dave Gettleman at the helm, and it would be tough for the Giants to find a worse coach than Ben McAdoo this offseason. That plus the healthy return of Odell Beckham should help Manning bounce back, but the 37-year-old (on January 3) is clearly nearing the end. The Giants need to start planning for the future at quarterback.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 04:45:00 PM

Giants GM Dave Gettleman said he's "moving forward" with the idea Eli Manning will return as the starter next season.

"If what I saw against Philadelpiha is not a mirage — and I don't believe it was — then we'll just keep moving." Gettleman's comments fall in line with the Giants handling of Manning since Ben McAdoo's firing. Manning isn't a lock to be back in 2018, but his contract ($12.4M in dead money) and ownership support suggest he'll remain in New York. The Giants need to make a decision on Manning in early March if they want to avoid paying his $5 million roster bonus.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo plans on Eli Manning taking "every snap" in Week 17.

Speaking about getting third-round rookie Davis Webb some playing time so the team could evaluate his progress, Spags responded "we feel like we know." Burned by the bitter criticism of benching Manning for Geno Smith, the Giants have responded by "doing right" by Manning down the stretch of what could be his final season in New York. We would take Spags at his word that Manning will start and finish against the Redskins.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo said Eli Manning will start Week 17.

"Eli will start, and then we'll probably take it bit by bit," Spagnuolo said. "We just take it and see how it goes." The comments suggest that while Manning will start, Davis Webb could see some snaps as well. At this point, it makes sense for the Giants to see what Webb can do.

Eli Manning completed 27-of-45 passes for 263 yards and two interceptions in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

He also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. It was a total meltdown from Manning coming off one of his better games. Manning didn't have much of a supporting cast with Evan Engram leaving early, but this was a concerning performance for his status with the Giants. New York could take a look at Davis Webb in Week 17.

Eli Manning completed 37-of-57 passes for 434 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Eagles.

Eli showed he has something left in the tank in a shocking back-and-forth effort that shot out from the get go. The Giants built a 20-7 lead only for their defense to blow it in a 34-29 defeat. Nevertheless, it was a solid outing for Eli to put on tape as he likely heads to the free agent market in 2018, although that hasn't yet been decided. Despite Sunday's superb outing, Manning will be a mere two-quarterback-league play in Week 16 at Arizona.

Giants owner John Mara wants Eli Manning to return in 2018.

Manning was shaping up as a lock to be released, but his status has changed with Ben McAdoo gone. Even with New York in position for a top-five pick, it's possible they give Manning another year with an improved supporting cast. There should be more clarity with the Giants expected to interview general manager candidates next week. Manning has two years and $22 million guaranteed remaining on his deal.

Eli Manning will remain the Giants' starting quarterback for Week 15.

Davis Webb might get a look at some point, but interim coach Steve Spagnuolo has given no indication of when that might be. There are only three games remaining. Manning will be off the Week 15 streaming radar against the Eagles.
