New Giants general manager Dave Gettleman had his long-anticipated first meeting with Eli Manning, and said it went 'great.'
There is more uncertainty than ever before regarding Manning's future in New York. The Giants have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft which is stocked with quarterbacks to choose from, with Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson expected to be selected in the first round. ESPN, Bleacher Report and NY Post all have the Giants selecting Rosen at no. 2.
"Yes, it was a great meeting,'' Gettleman said, via Paul Schwartz of NY Post. "Eli, obviously on this team, there's only three guys who are still here from when I left. Eli, Zak DeOssie and JPP [Jason Pierre-Paul].''
Gettleman refused to answer when asked if any decisions on the quarterback's future were made.
"We had a great conversation and everything went well,'' said Gettleman.
Manning finished 2017 with 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while totaling 3,468 yards through the air for the Giants. He was sacked 31 times, second only to 2013 when he was brought down 39 times.
If the Giants move on from Manning this offseason, they'll have dead money on their cap. The figure will be $6 million if he's cut or $12 million if he's traded.
