Giants' Eli Manning: May not have full commitment
General manager Dave Gettleman didn't sound entirely committed to retaining Manning for the 2019 season when questioned about the matter Wednesday, Matt Lombardo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "You don't know what can happen," Gettleman said. "We're evaluating everything and we just have to keep moving forward."
Gettleman spoke with the media less than an hour after coach Pat Shurmur, who definitively said that Manning will be back with the Giants. It sounds like the two bosses aren't quite on the same page, though both were complimentary of Manning's 2018 performance, pointing to subpar play on the offensive line as an explanation for the 38-year-old's inconsistent performance. With Gettleman refusing to rule out the possibility of adding another veteran quarterback, the Giants are staying open to all options, including investing an early draft pick at the position. The team surely plans to make a decision on Manning before March 17, at which point he's due to receive a $5 million roster bonus.
