There have been no contract extension discussions yet between the New York Giants and their star quarterback, Eli Manning, who will be a free agent after the 2015 NFL Season if no deal is finalized. "No discussions yet," Manning said via the New York Daily News. "I don't know if there will be or not."
The 34-year-old Manning, if he hits free agency in 2016, would be one of the top free agents on the market. The three-time NFL Pro Bowler’s resume is unquestioned. He led the Giants to five postseason appearances and two Super Bowl titles, being named Super Bowl MVP both times.
“Sure. I think you’re always proving yourself in this league,” Manning, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, added. “It’s always kind of what have you done lately and you got to prove that you can still play at a high level.”
For his 11-year NFL career, Manning has accumulated 39,755 passing yards with 259 touchdowns against 185 interceptions. Last season, he had 4,410 passing yards with 30 touchdowns against 14 interceptions plus a quarterback rating of 92.1, one of the highest in his career.
