The two-time Super Bowl winner can become a free agent after the year, but in speaking with reporters after the Giants' voluntary workouts on Monday, said the lack of a deal will not affect his preparation.
"I've never got too caught up with contract stuff," he said. "Way I look at it, I have one more year and I'm gonna play that year and go from there."
Manning, 34, has passed for 39,755 yards with 259 touchdowns and 185 interceptions in 11 NFL seasons.
““This year will be a much easier transition, knowing that we have been through so much of it already,” said Manning, who recently had been working out at Ole Miss with some of their receivers and alumni. “It’s definitely a different starting point. I feel good about it. I feel that I have a good understanding of it.
“But there is still room to grow and that is why I try to keep it as fresh in my mind as possible. Looking at old game-plan sheets and calling plays in my head – throwing routes with receivers trying to call out plays to myself, so you don’t let it slip away. It was new last year and it wasn’t something I have been doing for 10 years, so you want to keep it fresh and go through your reminders and all your checks. So when we come back I haven’t taken a step backwards and have to re-learn things. It is still all there. There will be new stuff and we will be taking it to another level.”
Manning has started all 16 games in each season since 2005, throwing for 39,755 yards with 259 touchdowns and 185 interceptions.
"I don't see that as being an issue at all," Coughlin said Wednesday at the NFC coaches' breakfast at the NFL's Annual Meetings. "Eli knows he's our guy."
Giants co-owner Steve Tisch also believes that they will get something worked out with the two-time Super Bowl champion.
"Everyone is aware of the contract status, but we'll get there. Yeah, I think we'll get it done," co-owner Steve Tisch said. "We know what an asset we have with Eli."

“I would love Eli to retire from football a New York Giant,” Tisch said Monday at the NFL meetings. “It’s my personal feelings, and as one of the co-owners, my professional feelings. It would make me very happy. I think it would be very special for the Giants organization, for Eli and for the Manning family. I think that’s certainly a personal goal.”
Tisch said there was no timetable on extending Manning.
“I don’t like forcing issues,” Tisch said. “There is no deadline at this point in time, no gun to anybody’s head.”
"If it doesn't happen, we're still going to line up and play," Giants president John Mara said, per the New York Post.
Manning can become a free agent after the 2015 season and the Giants are weary about giving him a contract similar to the five-year, $99 million contract Ben Roethlisberger received from the Steelers.
