The New York Giants have signed quarterback Eli Manning to a four-year extension, the team announced. The deal is worth $84 million, including $65 million in guaranteed money. The Giants, according to the sources, agreed to include a no-trade clause in Manning’s new deal, which had been a major hurdle in the talks.
“I’m obviously excited knowing I’ll be a Giant for a long time,” Manning said in a statement. “This is where I got started and where I want to finish. I still have the same mentality. My goal is to earn this contract and do my best and keep trying to win championships for the Giants. Not many people come to a team and play there for an extended period of time or, hopefully, their whole careers. I feel obviously blessed to be part of the Giants family and to have played my career here, with the fans, the ownership and everything the Giants represent. It’s been a great 11 years going into 12, and hopefully we can continue to have some great years, and there are a lot of fond memories ahead of us.”
