When 2015 began, New York Giants Quarterback, Eli Manning was entering the final year of his contract. But he doesn’t seem to be bothered by the fact that Giants haven’t brought it up. “Nothing has been brought up,” Manning said. “I haven’t made a big deal about it.” Eli also said he won’t be insulted or mad if he doesn’t get a new contract before the current one ends.

His brother, Peyton has eli-manningdone that before, twice actually, in Indianapolis. Eli got his current contract before his rookie deal expired, though. This time around the Giants may decide to wait and see what happens in 2015. “The contract is not something I’m going to argue about or make a fuss about,” Eli said.

He is due to earn a base salary of 17 million in 2015, with a cap number of 19.75 million. That gives Manning plenty of leverage since it would cost the team 23.7 million in 2016 under the non-exclusive franchise tag and probably even more under the exclusive franchise tag.manning That means that the Giants would be paying plenty if Eli opts for a year-to-year arrangement, which would increase the tender by 20 percent in 2017 and 44 percent in 2018. It’ll be interesting to see whether New York would roll with the non-exclusive tag, given Eli’s stated desire to not leave the team.
