As the Giants prepare to potentially draft their quarterback of the future, their current quarterback may still have a future beyond 2019.

Sal Paolantonio of ESPN reports that Giants quarterback Eli Manning intends to play “somewhere” in 2020.

That “somewhere” may not be New York. He’s in the last year of his contract, and the Giants may not offer him a new one. The question then becomes whether he’d be willing to play somewhere else.

Some believe Eli wants to spend his entire career with one team. Even if he’s willing to move, he needs to find a willing employer. And that may not be easy to do.

That could change if he has a big year. Even then, teams that are looking for quarterbacks may be looking for someone closer to 20 than 50, barring injury.

  1. As a fan in the NFC East (Eagles), I hope he plays 5 more years for them. They’re screwed. They traded away his best target. Now teams can really stack the box against Barkley, and Eli isn’t good enough anymore to carry mediocre receivers. It’ll be interesting to see how bad they are this season.

  2. does he think anyone will want him? pretty confident statement from a guy who hucks it up for grabs more than actually passes. how he’s lasted this long is beyond me

  3. Patriots!!!!! Eli is the real G.O.AT. not Brady

  4. If Eli will play for $1,000,000 then a team may want him.
    I’d rather pay him 1MM than Dak Prescott 30MM. I could us ethe other 29MM to build up the team.

    Now if Eli wants 16MM then forget it, I’d rather draft a guy and go with him.

    Let’s get through 2019 first!

    “As the Giants prepare to potentially draft their quarterback of the future”
    Key word here “potentially”

    “He’s in the last year of his contract, and the Giants may not offer him a new one.”
    Key words “may not”

    “That could change if he has a big year.”
    YEP, the Giants could offer him another shorter contract just as the Steelers did Big Ben.

    Just look at his stats from last season, IMHO they weren’t that bad considering how bad the Giants were and just how bad their OL was. Eli had the highest completion percentage of his career at 66% and also the 4th highest passing yards of his career. They got Zeitler and with another OL and a WR they could be better than last year even without OBJ.

    It’s a pretty weak QB draft class to be looking to land your next franchise QB!

  6. If the Giants rebuild their offensive line they can get another two three productive years from Eli. Extend him!

  7. Eli’s stats were not that bad last year honestly. Somebody could use his level of production.

    66.0% completion rate
    4,299 Yards
    21 Touchdowns
    11 Tnterceptions
    92.4 QB Rating
