Following the Giants' 2019 season, quarterback Eli Manning hung 'em up, retiring from the NFL.
That was now several weeks ago. But Manning has a lifetime to go and as of now, he's still adjusting to retired life.
Manning said some post-career things are the same currently, while other things are different. It hasn't exactly set in that he's retired just yet.
"I don't know if it's truly kicked in because I don't know if a whole lot would be different at this point," Manning told The Athletic in referencing it being so early in the NFL offseason. "I'm still working out. I'm not throwing. I haven't thrown a ball since the last game. But I'm staying busy with workouts and stuff.
"It hasn't totally, probably, kicked in until you get to the spring and you're not reporting for OTAs and you're not going to training camp and the fall -- we'll see how it all comes," Manning added.
The QB also mentioned that he's keeping busy with his kids, but as Manning said himself, it's only March. We're still waiting for free agency, even.
But could that all change? As recently as this weekend, reports surfaced that teams could be trying to bring Manning out of retirement. The 39-year-old has previously said he doesn't want to return as a backup quarterback, so a team has to find a starting spot for him. Until one of those comes about, Manning will probably use his retirement to hold off on attending any sort of OTAs and maybe cutting training camp a bit short if there's any sort of return in the works.
