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.

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.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants are "all in" on Eli Manning and likely to extend his contract this offseason.

Manning set a career-high in completion percentage (63.1) and threw for 30 touchdowns in his first season under OC Ben McAdoo. He's scheduled to count $19.8 million against the cap in his final year and will be extended to finish out his career with the Giants. Coming off a bounce-back season, Manning should be seeking a deal in the range of $20M annually.
Feb 7 - 5:18 PM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-53 passes for 429 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

In his first year under new OC Ben McAdoo, Eli Manning set a career-high in completion percentage (63.0). His 14 interceptions were his lowest since 2009 and his 30 TDs were most since 2010. It all came with Odell Beckham emerging as a freakish top-flight wideout, and with Victor Cruz (knee) missing most of the year. Eli will turn 34 years old next week, but the scheme combined with the woeful pass defenses of the NFC East give him 2015 fantasy appeal. He was fantasy's No. 11 quarterback through 16 weeks this year.

Eli Manning completed 25-of-32 passes for 391 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.

For the second straight week, Eli was absolutely locked in. He dropped perfect dimes to both Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle, audibled perfectly to runs and took just one sack against a very good front four. Over the last two weeks, Manning has completed 72.7 percent of his passes with a 6:0 TD-to-INT ratio. He gets the atrocious Eagles secondary in Week 17's meaningless finale.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 07:45:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 23-of-34 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Redskins.

All three of Manning's touchdowns went to Odell Beckham, who he targeted 15 times. His highlight was a 35-yard strike to Beckham where he looked off the safety. It was a needed breakout after Manning struggled against Tennessee and Jacksonville the last two weeks. Manning will be a QB2 for Week 16 against St. Louis.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:01:00 PM

Eli Manning (back) is active for Week 15 against Washington.

Manning was listed on the injury report with a back issue, but practiced in full. The Giants inactives are OL Eric Herman, CB Jayron Hosley, LB James Davidson, RB Chris Ogbonnaya, LB Jacquian Williams, and OT James Brewer.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 11:28:00 AM

Eli Manning (back) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Eli set the Redskins ablaze with five all-purpose TDs in Week 4 and gets to face them at home Sunday. He's a recommended streamer in the fantasy semifinals.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 01:14:00 PM

Eli Manning (back) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice, but "did everything."

"There weren't any real restrictions on him," were the words of coach Tom Coughlin. If that's the case, it's unclear why Manning was listed as "limited," but so it goes. Manning is a high-end QB2 for Week 15 against the Redskins' pathetic defense.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 02:06:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 26-of-42 passes for 260 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Titans.

The Titans' pitiful defense made Manning look competent for much of the day. Marqueston Huff later got Eli for a hilariously-easy 23-yard pick-six, but Manning was rolling before that. He hooked up with Odell Beckham for a 50-yard gain early before finishing off the same drive with a 15-yard touchdown to OBJ. Manning could come onto the streaming map next week against the Redskins.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 04:54:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 24-of-34 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

He took four sacks and lost two fumbles. The Giants were down four starters on the offensive line and struggled to pass protect. After opening the game with three straight scoring drives, Manning was shut down in the second half. His only touchdown was a three-yard pass to Preston Parker. Manning will be a streaming option for a matchup with the Titans in Week 14.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 04:34:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 29-of-40 passes for 338 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday night's Week 12 loss to the Cowboys.

Manning played one of his better games coming off his five-interception performance against the 49ers. He had two first-half touchdowns to Odell Beckham, and later hit a wide-open Adrien Robinson at the goal-line. Manning's pick was a bad overthrew to Preston Parker in the red-zone that allowed Dallas back in the game. He now has a 5:7 TD/INT ratio over his last three starts. Manning will be a streaming option against Jacksonville in Week 13.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 12:31:00 AM

Giants owner John Mara recently gave Eli Manning a vote of confidence.

It's worth noting that Mara's comments came before Manning threw five picks in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. "We still think he's in his prime and still has a lot of good years left," Mara said optimistically. "It lifts the whole franchise when you have a quarterback who can play at that level." Fans and writers can often be far too quick to write off players, but Manning's TD:INT ratio is now 36:38 since the start of last season. He's posted a 6.9 YPA and 75.8 QB rating during the same timespan. Manning turns 34 in January, and 2015 is the final year of his contract. The Giants would be foolish not to at least consider a post-Manning future.

Eli Manning completed 22-of-45 passes for 280 yards with one touchdown and five interceptions in Sunday's 16-10 Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

Bad Eli face was out in full effect, even against a depleted 49ers secondary. He once again had repeated miscommunications with Rueben Randle, looking like he was throwing the game on a couple of the picks. So after a five-game streak that saw Manning throw just one pick, we're back to square one heading into a Week 12 home game against the Cowboys. Eli's TD-to-INT rate does stand at 18:11 one year after a ridiculous 18:27 campaign.
