    Giants' Eli Manning: Expected to start over Jones

    GM Dave Gettleman expects Eli Manning to retain the New York Giants' starting job QB in 2019, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports. "The goal is for Eli to be our quarterback," Gettleman said. "Maybe we're going to be the Green Bay model, where [Aaron] Rodgers sat for three years. Who knows?"The Giants could've freed up $17 million in cap space if they'd released Manning before March 18, but they instead kept him on the roster and then drafted Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall Thursday night. While he's still a strong favorite for the Week 1 start, Manning probably won't keep the job for long if he struggles or the team falls out of playoff contention. Given the current state of the New York defense, it's hard to see how the team can remain competitive with anything less than a Herculean effort from star running back Saquon Barkley.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Collecting $5 million roster bonus

    GM Dave Gettleman confirmed Eli Manning will receive a $5 million roster bonus Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.Previous reports suggested the bonus was due Saturday, but it turns out Manning has to wait until Monday afternoon. Regardless, the decision to pay him the money ensures the New York Giants will stick with the 38-year-old quarterback for at least one more season. Gettleman's offseason moves hint at a run-first approach centered around Saquon Barkley, with the Giants acquiring standout guard Kevin Zeitler and swapping out Odell Beckham for Golden Tate at wide receiver. The problem with the plan is that it requires a solid defense, while the Giants arguably have the NFL's ugliest depth chart on that side of the ball. A wealth of draft capital should help address the problem, but there will still be some busy days ahead for Manning, who could eventually face pressure for the starting job if his team uses an early pick on a quarterback.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Still part of plan in New York

    The New York Giants are expected to retain Eli Manning for 2019, ESPN.com's Dan Graziano reports.Trading away Odell Beckham might seem to hint at a rebuild, but the Giants apparently believe they can compete in 2019 with an offense built around Saquon Barkley and the running game. A final decision on Manning should be clear by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, at which point he'll receive a $5 million bonus if he's still on the roster. Given the current state of their defense and wideout corps, it's hard to understand why the Giants believe a past-his-prime, 38-year-old quarterback is more valuable than the $17 million in cap space his release would create.

    Giants' Eli Manning: May not have full commitment

    General manager Dave Gettleman didn't sound entirely committed to retaining Eli 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 New York 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.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Expected to stay with New York

    Coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that Eli Manning will remain with the New York Giants for the 2019 season, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.Shurmur strongly hinted at another season with Manning as the starting quarterback, going as far to say that he believes the 38-year-old has multiple years remaining in his career, per Vacchiano. This doesn't mean the Giants will pass on the opportunity to select a quarterback early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but it at least suggests Manning will be under center for Week 1. Shurmur implied that a poor offensive line was largely to blame for the team's offensive struggles in 2018. With Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram all under contract, the Giants have no shortage of talent at the skill positions.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Mediocre season

    Eli Manning finished the season with passable cosmetic stats -- 4,299 yards (7.5 YPA), 21 passing touchdowns and 11 interceptions -- but a look under the hood tells a different story.Manning took 47 sacks (10th in the NFL) and lost 358 yards (6th) while also fumbling seven times. In other words, he got nailed for huge losses like many scrambling quarterbacks do without making up for it with positive gains. His touchdown total on the 10th-most attempts (576) in the league was also disappointing, given the ample skill-position talent the New York Giants had on hand. Per OverTheCap.com, the Giants could save nearly $17 million in cap space if they cut him before June 1, but as of now, the team hasn't indicated whether it plans to bring Manning back for another season.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Throws two TD passes

    Eli Manning completed 24 of 41 pass attempts for 301 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Cowboys. He also lost a fumble.Manning completed just 59 percent of his attempts, but some big plays allowed him to top 300 passing yards for the fifth time this season. He connected with Evan Engram and Cody Latimer for touchdowns, upping his total to 21 on the season. Unfortunately, Manning also turned the ball over 15 times and failed to take full advantage of the wealth of options at the skill positions that the New York Giants boast. This ineptitude could force the team to move on from Manning during the offseason, whether it be in free agency or via the draft.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Starting Week 17

    Coach Pat Shurmur called Eli Manning the New York Giants' starting quarterback for Week 17 against the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.Consequently, Shurmur squashed speculation about whether 2018 fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta will earn a start in his first pro season. When asked whether Lauletta will see game action for the second time this season, Shurmur replied, "We'll see." Shurmur's decision is not a surprise, considering Manning is on the doorstep of 4,000 yards for the fourth time in five seasons and is posting his best yards per attempt (7.5) since 2011. On the other hand, the Giants are out of postseason contention, so it wouldn't surprise if Manning's backup makes an appearance Sunday, whether it be Lauletta or Alex Tanney.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Tops 300 yards in loss

    Eli Manning completed 25 of 33 passing attempts for 309 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Colts. He also rushed twice for no yards and another touchdown.Manning found Scott Simonson for a three-yard touchdown to help the New York Giants jump out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. While he wouldn't pass for another score, he would add one on the ground in the third, but in the end, it would not be enough for the victory. The 37-year-old may have played his final game for New York, as there's been speculation that he would be replaced by rookie Kyle Lauletta for the final week of the regular season at home against Dallas prior to being released in the offseason.

    Giants' Eli Manning: Won't be replaced Week 16

    Eli Manning will get the start Week 16 in Indianapolis, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.Coach Pat Shurmur didn't wait long to kill any speculation about Kyle Lauletta getting the Week 16 start now that the New York Giants have been eliminated from playoff contention. There is some chance the rookie could take snaps as a mid-game replacement, especially if Manning struggles early against a red-hot Colts defense. Shurmur didn't comment on the plan for Week 17.
