Giants QB Eli Manning said on WFAN Tuesday that although he does not plan to retire and does not wish to leave the Giants, he is unsure of whether or not he will be playing elsewhere next season, per Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.
The 36-year-old Manning said he will talk to his brother, Peyton, and his father, Archie, about any possible decisions regarding his future.
""I don't wish to leave," he said. "This is all kind of new to me," he said. "I don't know what the rules or timetables are... The sooner you know, the better.''
Manning, who was benched for one game by coach Ben McAdoo -- who was fired after that game -- has since returned to his starting role and has started 14 games so far this season. He has thrown 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions during what has been an injury-plagued season for the rest of the offense -- particularly at the receiver position.
Still, Manning seems to think the team can bounce back.
"It may be hard to realize it or say it but I don't think the Giants are too far off," said Manning, who added that he still feels "strong and excited to play" and that his body feels good.
"I think I still have good football left in me," he added.
The veteran quarterback said he still maintains a positive relationship with Giants ownership.
""Mr. Mara and I have a good relationship," Manning said. "He's been a wonderful owner, the Tisch's, everybody. There's no other team I want to play for. This is all I know.''
When reiterating his desire to remain with the Giants, Manning added that he does not mind if he faces competition from another quarterback.
Manning, who on Sunday passed John Elway to become sixth all-time on the all-time passing yards list, has thrown 338 touchdowns and 227 interceptions in his career dating back to 2004.
