Giants owner says Eli Manning still considering his future
No one knows what’s next for Eli Manning. His future is unclear for the first time in 16 seasons, since his days as the starting quarterback for the New York Giants are over.
It seems like Manning also doesn’t know what his future holds. In an interview with WFAN’s “Moose and Maggie,” Giants owner John Mara discussed his recent conversation with Manning and said that the QB is still mulling over his options.
“He’s just undecided right now,” Mara said.
“The season just ended recently and he needs to take some more time and think about it. And I’ve told him there’s no time limit on that. We’ll talk whenever he’s ready to sit down and talk again.”
Manning all but ruled out a return to the Giants several weeks ago, telling the media that being a backup “is not real fun.”
Despite that, Mara said that the organization hasn’t closed the door on Manning suiting up again for the only NFL team he’s ever played for.
