Rather than play a final year or two for a different team, Eli Manning will officially announce his NFL retirement on Friday morning, after playing all 16 seasons with the Giants.
After the news broke of Manning's plans to retire, former teammates, coaches, and other members of the NFL world congratulated Manning on everything he achieved during his professional career.
Here's a sampling of how the NFL reacted to Manning officially calling it a career ...
1️⃣6️⃣ seasons!! Wish it wouldn't have been so short lived #️⃣🔟! No doubt in my mind my man has tons more left in the tank, but here's to a great HOF career!🍻...I'll be awaiting for Eli's call for Beer Pong 🏆.
