It’s the end of an era for Eli Manning.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is retiring after 16 seasons and two Super Bowl MVPs. He holds almost every passing record in team history and a pair of Super Bowl rings. He’s most known for his victories over the New England Patriots after the 2007 and 2011 seasons. Those games alone could put him in the Hall of Fame conversation.
Eli is one of just five players in NFL history with at least two Super Bowl MVPs. He’s in the same club as Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Tom Brady and Terry Bradshaw.
The Giants will hold a news conference at 11am on Friday where Manning will address the media and make the retirement known.
Likely, his decision comes after playing backup to rookie, Daniel Jones most of last season.
Manning was set to become a free agent this offseason. He has made more than $250 million from his football contracts, the most in NFL history.
Congrats on a hell of a career!
