Manning Agrees on Contract Extension

Eli Manning has agreed on a new contract extension. The new contract extension is six years, $97 million, with an average salary of about $15.3 million, according to Fox Sports. The new deal tacks on to his current deal, which is in its last year, and is worth $9.4 million. The total contract is seven years, $106.7 million. While the total is not the highest ever, the annual salary is.  $35 million is guaranteed. The deal has not been signed yet, the report said, but they are close to signing it.

His numbers may not be worthy of the highest contract ever, but the Giants were never going to let him enter the open market. The Super Bowl ring didn’t hurt in the negotiating room. Good for Eli and the Giants, who can now move on, and focus on football.
