Eli jokes Giants could probably find spot for Peyton if he wants to be quality control coach

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a guest on Friday’s edition of PFT Live from Radio Row in San Francisco and Mike Florio asked him the question you’d expect given the focus on his brother this week.

Eli gave the answer you’d expect, which is that no one knows whether Peyton will be calling it a career after Super Bowl 50. The youngest Manning brother did say with a smile that he’d be happy to play for his brother if he decides to transition to life as a coach in 2016.

“I think if Peyton wants to come and be a quality control [coach] for the New York Giants and work in the quarterback room … earn his ropes, earn his way into the coaching routine I think we could probably open up a spot for him,” Manning said. 

As for his actual coaches, Manning said he’s happy to still be working with Ben McAdoo and expressed gratitude for what he learned about football and life from Tom Coughlin over their 12 years working together.

Manning also shared stories about the worst torture he faced from Peyton while they were growing up and his thoughts about being a nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award during an entertaining visit.
