Eli Manning Set To Get 4-Year $84M Extension
On Tuesday ESPN's Adam Schefter told Armen And Levack, that the New York Giants quarterback was set to get paid this week. Reports came out early Friday that Manning is to receive a four-year contract extension worth $84 million that would include $65 million in guaranteed money, but the two sides have remained hung up on specific contract language they hope to agree upon by this weekend, according to league and team sources.
Manning will make $21 million average in new money on the four-year extension which would rank him fourth among quarterbacks in the NFL, behind Aaron Rodgers ($22 million), Russell Wilson ($21.9 million) and Ben Roethlisberger ($21.85 million).
The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback still will make $17.5 million in the final year of his current contract, which would bring his five-year total to $101.5 million, per sources.
Manning took things into his own hands this week, after tell the media that he hopes this gets done before Sunday's game. There's no question that the Giants responded in a positive fashion.
