Eli Manning has played with plenty of talented receivers in the last decade - from Steve Smith to Victor Cruz to Hakeem Nicks to Odell Beckham. But for the last eight years something big has been missing from his targets.

Size.

That has mattered more than the 6-foot-4 Giants quarterback has admitted throughout the years, but this year that has changed. For the first time since the 6-5 Plaxico Burress was released, the Giants have a truly viable big receiver. They signed the 6-4 Brandon Marshall in February, and Manning is excited as everyone else in the organization seems to be to have a truly big target on his side.

Odell Beckham, Jr. may have skipped Eli Manning's annual minicamp at Duke University, but the Giants quarterback still managed to draw quite a crowd.

Receivers Brandon MarshallSterling ShepardTavarres King, and Roger Lewis were all in Durham, N.C., this week - as several of them documented on Instagram -- as Manning held his traditional offseason retreat and a few days of workouts and drills. They were joined, based on the photos they shared, by tight ends Will TyeJerell Adams, and Rhett Ellison, along with quarterback Josh Johnson and running back Shaun Draughn.

The longer Johnathan Hankins remains unsigned, the more likely it seems that he'll return to the Giants. And if he does, credit the patient approach of GM Jerry Reese and his bosses. Because they read the market right, and played this perfectly.

They could've jumped to find a replacement for the 25-year-old Hankins, or tried to make him move by threatening to pull their offer. Instead they made him what a team source said they believe is a very fair, very lucrative multi-year offer before free agency began. Then they left it there on the table, convinced nobody would top it and that Hankins' agent, Kevin Poston, would badly overplay his hand.

PHOENIX - The Giants may not have made the kind of free-agency splash that they made last season, but they have spent the last few days positively glowing about the addition of Brandon Marshall. To them, the addition of the 6-4 receiver is a big deal.

A really, really big deal.

"There are a lot of advantages to having a bigger receiver on the outside," Giants coach Ben McAdoo said on Tuesday afternoon at the NFL Owners Meetings at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. "You can throw it up, especially with someone like Brandon with his strength and his catch radius. He almost didn't fit through my doorway when he came into the building. He's a big man. He's like a tight end body out there. He's a big, strong man."

PHOENIX -- The Giants threw down the gauntlet in front of Odell Beckham Jr. at the end of last season, telling him, in GM Jerry Reese's words, it was time to "grow up." They were tired of the on-field antics, angry about his ill-timed boat trip, not to mention the hole in the wall in Green Bay.

But none of that has truly soured the Giants on their all-pro receiver.

PHOENIX - It may seem strange that Geno Smith signed with a team for which he has little chance of ever playing, but his former Jets teammate Brandon Marshall believes it was "absolutely" the right move for the young quarterback.

"I think it was really good for Geno to sign there," Marshall said outside of the NFL Owners Meetings at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. "I'm excited to see him continue to grow."

Growth seems to be the main reason the 26-year-old Smith chose to sign with the Giants after his turbulent four years across town with the Jets. When he signed, he spoke about the chance to learn from Eli Manning, who has started every game for the Giants since he first won the job as a rookie way back in 2004...

WR Brandon Marshall does not believe the Giants' young receivers would have gone to party in Miami following their Week 17 victory over the Redskins had he been a member of the team at the time.

"You know what? No, it doesn't happen," Marshall said on NFL Network's 'Good Morning Football' Thursday morning. "Well, I can't say that. Everyone is different. But I would have been against that, and partly because of my pains, right? I've been in the league so long and I've never made the playoffs. so for me, I'm a guy … I'm in year 11 (in that scenario), and I'm all-in, because I know this opportunity doesn't come around often. But then you have younger guys."

Marshall followed that comment up with an explanation of how a younger football star might think differently that a veteran in such situations.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV: 

It may be showtime for the Giants offense now that Brandon Marshall has signed on, but his appearances on Showtime may be over.

Marshall, who had been one of the highest profile Jets the last two years and a weekly panelist on Showtime's "Inside the NFL," said he plans to cut back on his media appearances now that he's signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Giants. It was unclear if that was his choice or something the Giants asked him to do.

But he certainly sounded like he was done with Showtime show.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

After 11 seasons in the NFL with not a single taste of the playoffs and a string of mediocre (or worse) quarterbacks throwing him passes, Brandon Marshall had enough. That's why he insisted his trip to free agency wasn't going to be driven by money.

And he said he proved that by signing with the Giants when he had a chance to go elsewhere and make more.

"They definitely didn't offer me the most money," Marshall said on a conference call with the media on Wednesday. "It was probably the least money. It was all about championships, to get straight to the point. It was all about a championship. They presented the best opportunity to be in a championship organization."

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

The Giants made a much bigger splash into the free agent pool than anyone expected, landing one of the biggest receivers they've had in years.

On the eve of the opening of the free-agent signing period, the Giants signed receiver Brandon Marshall, an 11-year veteran who was released last week by the Jets. The 6-4, 230-pounder is exactly the kind of big target on the outside the Giants have so desperately needed to take some of the heat off of Odell Beckham, Jr..

Marshall a fit with Giants? 00:02:42
The Daily News Live panel discusses if recently released Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall would be a good fit for the Giants next season.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

INDIANAPOLIS - In a perfect (and uncapped) world, Brandon Marshall would make perfect sense for the Giants. He's the big receiver they've needed for years, a potential mentor for the young and turbulent Odell Beckham, and with a personality that proved to be a good fit for New York.

And while the Giants' salary cap situation could make it complicated, now that Marshall is an ex-Jet, a move to the other locker room at the Meadowlands makes too much sense for the Giants not to at least try.

Begin with the football aspect of it. The Giants are in need of an outside receiver after cutting Victor Cruz, who was a bad fit on the outside anyway. They need one accomplished and dangerous enough to take some pressure off Beckham. And they need one with size, since the book on quarterback Eli Manning since his college days has always been that when he misses his target, more often than not he misses high.

INDIANAPOLIS - It's hard to imagine a worse spot for Todd Bowles. The glow of his first-year success evaporated in last year's 5-11 disaster. His job could be on the line this season, for real, with no promises from his owner of the future. His team has no quarterback. It's shedding many of its past leaders.

In other words, Bowles might very well be in a win-now position as his team is in the midst of a total rebuild.

What will Jets do with 6th pick? 00:00:57
SNY NFL insider Ralph Vacchiano weighs in on the Jets prospects at quarterback through the draft and free agency.

The Jets are sitting in a power position as the NFL Scouting Combine begins this week. They hold the sixth overall pick in the draft, which all-but guarantees they will get one of the two best players at whatever position they choose. It also means they'll almost certainly get some immediate help with that pick.

They sure could use that after a miserable 5-11 season that has sent them into full rebuilding mode. They likely won't settle on their pick this week, but they'll need to get some clarity and perhaps narrow their choices, because the NFL free-agent signing period begins as soon as they get home.

And they have some work to do on that front, too.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets are already beginning to clear salary cap space, but they know they still have a lot of work to do if they're going to be players in this year's free-agent market. They could easily help heir situation and clear more than $13 million in space by cutting their two veteran receivers who'll turn 30 and 33 in March.

With a stable of young, promising receivers on the roster, and with a team that is most definitely not ready to win now, the idea of parting ways with Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall makes a lot of sense. Of course, it was only two seasons ago where they were as good as any 1-2 punch in football.

And that could be a good thing for a new, young quarterback to have...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets began the reshaping of their roster and the first of what could be many moves to help clear salary cap space on Thursday as they released two veterans -- kicker Nick Folk and right tackle Breno Giacomini.

The moves clear about $7.5 million in salary cap space and leave the Jets somewhere around $10 million under the projected NFL salary cap. They were actually over until last week, when they declined to pick up the option on veteran left tackle Ryan Clady.

The NFL offseason may be off to a slow start, but things are surely about to pick up with cuts and contract restructures on their way, and with the scouting combine just two weeks away.

With that in mind, here is our weekly look at some of the biggest questions facing the Jets, what's new about them, where they stand on finding an answer, and if any of the issues have changed.

1. Who is their quarterback?

They of course haven't answered this yet, but they did answer who'll be coaching the quarterbacks: new offensive coordinator John Morton and new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates. Neither has an extensive resume at their current positions -- or really working with quarterbacks -- which is interesting if they're going to be entrusted with developing a young quarterback.

The Ryan Fitzpatrick Era was never supposed to happen for the Jets, and it certainly never was expected to last two roller-coaster seasons. In the end, though, it was a wild ride that rescued a franchise in one of its darkest moments before leading it back into the darkness again.

For better or for worse, the Fitzpatrick Era officially ended on Friday when the contract that the 34-year-old quarterback signed last summer automatically voided. All that's left is a $5 million cap hit the Jets must endure during the 2017 season. And memories - more than a few good ones, and plenty of bad.

So was it worth it? That all depends on your perspective, how much your sights are set on the Jets' long-term future, and how much you value all the fun that was had in 2015 during the Jets' near-playoff-miss.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall listed JJ Watt and Deion Sanders among the players he believes could be the best of all time, but one player was notably absent from his list: Tom Brady.

Marshall told NJ Advanced Media during a charity event for his Project 375 foundation that Brady is "not the best player ever," adding that his idea of the best player would be "a guy that I can put at corner, safety, defensive end, a guy that I can put back on punt return, chase down kicks." He also mentioned Reggie White and Jerry Rice as possible contenders for the best player ever, but conceded that it "would probably be impossible [to say for sure]."

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the New York Jets can begin cleaning up the wreckage from their 5-11 season and start yet another rebuilding project. Despite being on the cusp of the playoffs a year ago, they seem farther away than ever now.

With that in mind, here are some of the biggest questions the Jets must answer this offseason. We'll check back in each week to see how they're doing, whether any of the questions have been answered, and whether any have changed:

A year after lobbying the Jets to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brandon Marshall may be "retired" from offering his quarterback suggestions, but that doesn't mean he won't offer his thoughts on the Jets quarterbacks.

And when it comes to the two young ones on the current roster, the veteran receiver apparently likes what he's seen.

Marshall, speaking again on WFAN from the Super Bowl Media Center in Houston, Marshall had nothing but praise for second-year pro Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg. He stopped short of endorsing either as the Jets' starter in 2017, but he made it clear he believes the potential in both is there.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

\Brandon Marshall's numbers took a big dip last season and, at age 32, it looked like the beginning of a late-career decline. But the Jets receiver apparently doesn't agree with that sentiment.

In fact, he guarantees that next season, at age 33, he'll be right back up at the top of the charts.

Marshall vowed that he will be a "top-five" receiver again while making an appearance on ESPN's First Take during Super Bowl hype week in Houston on Wednesday. He acknowledged the misery of his 2016 season, in which he had just 59 catches for 788 yards. But to him, that was a blip on his radar, not a sign of diminishing skills...

Brandon Marshall clarified his comments insinuating he would take a pay cut to remain with the Jets, reports Daniel Popper of the NY Daily News.

Following the Jets season finale, Marshall remarked that he would "play for free" and that his "bills were paid" when asked if he would consider restructuring his contract.

"I didn't say I'll take a pay cut," Marshall said Tuesday, referring back to his previous statement. "What I said was I love football so much that I would play football if my bills were paid. I wasn't talking about the New York Jets, or any other team for that matter. I was talking about my love for the game, and how I'm at a point in my career, too, where it's not about the money."

Marshall is owed $7.5 million in the final year of a three-year deal. However, none of that money is guaranteed and the Jets can free themselves of Marshall's contract by releasing him at no expense this offseason.

GEICO SportsNite: Jets new OC 00:01:46
Ralph Vacchiano discusses the Jets hiring John Morton as their new offensive coordinator.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

The New York Jets found a big piece to their offensive puzzle when they finally hired an offensive coordinator on Tuesday. But nothing they do really matters until they find a quarterback -- which remains the biggest piece of all.

That piece is going to be the real key to the success of John Morton, whom the Jets hired as offensive coordinator. Morton has never been a coordinator in the NFL, though he held that position at USC from 2009 to 2010. He was a wide receivers coach in San Francisco from 2011 to 2014 and again in New Orleans for the past two years.

It's somewhat alarming that he's never called plays in the NFL, but it's really surprising that the Jets had to go with an inexperienced coordinator to replace veteran Chan Gailey, who retired after two seasons on the job. The Jets' job wasn't exactly an attractive one, considering head coach Todd Bowles enters the 2017 season on the hot seat and the Jets don't have an obvious quarterback

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

It has been 48 years and two weeks since the Jets shook up the world and changed the NFL with their victory in Super Bowl III, and they have since taken their fans on a long, depressing and at times torturous run. It's been so painful at times that it's easy to forget the Jets went to back-to-back AFC championship games just six years ago.

Of course, since then they've brought the pain: Six straight seasons without a playoff berth, only one season with a winning record, and it was all capped off by a miserable 5-11 season that felt worse since the Jets had so much optimism after going 10-6 in 2015.

"You would never see this in New England, right?" Marshall said on last night's episode of Showtime's Inside the NFL. "What it does is it keeps the New England Patriots on task. It keeps them marching in a single-file line: 'This is the New England way, and this is how we do things.' 

"You only have three or four minutes after the game to be with your teammates and really enjoy the moment or Band-Aid each other up. So that's precious time, and that time shouldn't be live-streamed for anyone to see."

Readers overwhelmingly voted to keep Eric DeckerNick Mangold and David Harris and to dump Darrelle Revis, but were torn on Brandon Marshall and Sheldon Richardson. How about some of the other decisions facing the front office and coaching staff?

Of course young players like Leonard Williams and Darron Lee or players that performed well in 2016 like James Carpenter and Bilal Powell will return in 2017, but that about those whose performance was more disappointing?

Brandon Marshall had 59 receptions for 788 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games for the Jets this past season.

Dealing with hip and shoulder injuries for most of the season, his production was down from his record-setting 2015 campaign, when he reeled in 109 catches for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Before 2015, the 32-year-old Marshall had recorded double-digit touchdowns three times before in his career -- twice with the Bears (2012 and 2013), and once with the Broncos (2009).

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The words came from his heart and the intent was to inspire, even if the sincerity and the message was often lost on some of his teammates. That was the problem Brandon Marshall faced this season. He wanted to unite his teammates. He divided them instead.

It's not that the Jets' locker room problems were his fault -- not by a longshot -- but there's no doubt the veteran receiver was in the center of it for much of the miserable, 5-11 season.

Marshall on 2016 struggles 00:03:55
Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall discusses a disappointing 2016 season and where he feels his NFL career is going moving forward.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Though he called this "probably my most frustrating year" in the NFL, and though he at times became a polarizing figure in his own locker room, Brandon Marshall made it clear he wants to be back with the Jets next season. He even joked "I'll play for free."

Now the Jets have to decide if the 32-year-old receiver with the declining production and controversial leadership style is worth bringing back, even at that price.

Marshall, of course, believes he is even after one of his least productive seasons - 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns. But his lack of production is only part of his equation. Marshall is due $7.5 million next season -- a bargain for an "elite" receiver, but otherwise a hefty price. And perhaps more importantly, he spent much of this season in the eye of the Jets' locker room storm.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The "dark cloud" that Darrelle Revis said hung over the Jets for most of the season caused a fractured locker room that never seemed to heal. And at least one Jet is convinced that the cloud of internal problems led directly to the team's miserable, losing year.

"It didn't help us," receiver Quincy Enunwa said on Monday. "You look at our record, it really hindered our play. A big reason for that is when you see the bad things that are going on, you kind of feel like you almost lose your purpose. You go into the season and you don't want to play for self. You want to play for team. But when team doesn't feel like a team, then you've got to start playing for self."

That is a damning assessment, and it seems to sum up the 5-11 Jets perfectly - a team that never really seemed like a team. They all came into the season feeling, as Enunwa said, "that we were a really good team." Then they were blown out in Kansas City in Week 3 and that served as a flashpoint for their new reality.

According to Cimini, with the Jets being shut out at the half, Marshall tried to get the team fired up, but some players did not agree with the method he chose to do so.

While 2016 has been a lost year for the Jets, rookie WR Robby Anderson continues to be one of the few positives to come out of New York's otherwise miserable season.

Anderson caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown, with the score coming on a 40-yard pass from QB Bryce Petty, in the Jets loss to the Dolphins on Saturday. It was Anderson's third straight game with a catch of 40 yards.

The undrafted rookie free agent out of Temple University has caught 14 passes on 29 targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns in New York's last three games.

As promised, Brandon Marshall came to MetLife Stadium with a yellow flag Saturday night, following up on his complaints of Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell from the Jets' first matchup with Miami this season.

Like just about everything else, that didn't work out too well for the Jets. Marshall was held to one catch, even after Maxwell had to leave the game with an ankle injury.

Bent, SNY.TV: 

During the season, Bent's Game Analysis charts games for some of the Jets' upcoming opponents, enabling a breakdown of what to watch out for on gameday…

The Jets host the Dolphins on Saturday with a chance to play spoiler. The 8-5 Dolphins have won seven of their last eight to leap into the postseason mix. Back in November, the Jets took a late lead in Miami and it looked like both teams were headed for a 4-5 record. However, one special teams breakdown cost the Jets the game and the teams have since seen their fortunes headed in different directions. That was a major turning point in Miami's season, but there was another last week: losing starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to injury.

Let's break down the positional groupings (BGA-style!) for the Dolphins to try and highlight what to watch out for.
