Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he is building a stronger rapport with Brandon Marshall as the veteran wide receiver looks ahead to his first season with the Giants.
"Brandon's been great," Manning said. "Every day trying to learn, always has questions for me and we're trying to figure out what he can do better, how we can get on the same page. So, I think he's been dialed in and been a great leader and just setting the example for how to be prepared for every practice."
Marshall, who is entering his 12th season in the league, is coming off a down season in which he caught 59 passes for 788 yards and three touchdowns with the Jets. In 2015, he recorded a career-high 14 touchdowns with 109 catches for 1,502 yards, which were both the second most totals in his career.
He said earlier this offseason he hopes he can become the dominant receiver he had been in the past, and Manning said he and the 33-year-old Marshall are still growing so they can get on the same page as Week 1 nears.
