The 2019 season was widely expected to be the final one in Eli Manning's career, but the 16-year veteran quarterback has yet to make a decision on his future and has left the door open to possibly coming back.

Giants co-owner John Mara spoke to WFAN early Friday morning and said that although Manning's role as starting quarterback is over (with the ascension of Daniel Jones), there are still other options available for him to stick around.

"I haven't closed any doors on that," Mara said about Manning finding another role within the organization during an appearance on WFAN's Moose and Maggie Show. "Eli came to see me a few days ago, and we had a nice, long talk, but I don't think he's fully decided yet what he wants to do. And I've told him just take his time, think about it some more and then come back and see me again."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Dave Gettleman was well aware of how angry fans were as the walls of the Giants franchise collapsed around him this season. He knew the outside world questioned his decisions. He could feel the heat in his office.

Yet he still refused to come out.

"I was feeling guilty about it," Gettleman said on Tuesday in his first press conference in more than five months. "I felt guilty that Pat (Shurmur) was up there taking the bullets."

Speaking on Monday after the firing of head coach Pat Shurmur and a day after walking off the MetLife Stadium field for what is almost certainly the last time, Giants QB Eli Manning reflected and talked about his future.

Manning said it will take a little time for the likely end of his Giants career to "truly sink in," adding that he'll choose to remember the good times. He also said he hasn't yet decided whether he wants to play in 2020.

"I'm gonna think about it, and then just talk to the family and figure out what's best for me and us and what I want to do moving forward," Manning said.

Less than two years ago, the Giants gave Pat Shurmur the keys to a dysfunctional mess of a locker room because they believed he was the "adult" who could clean it up. And in many ways he did. The room is far more professional than it was back then.

But that didn't matter as much as maybe it should have in this bottom line business. Shurmur went 9-23 in his two seasons with the Giants, including 4-11 with a franchise-record-tying nine-game losing streak this year.

In the end, the 54-year-old Shurmur never had a chance.

The Giants will have a ton of salary cap space this offseason to continue rebuilding their roster, but probably not many of their own players to spend it on. They are currently holding 15 players scheduled to be unrestricted free agents in March. Most of them aren't worth keeping.

Here's a look at those players, plus the Giants' three restricted free agents, and a few other players who could be - and perhaps should be - offseason salary cap cuts:

The Giants celebrated their victory over the Redskins in Hoboken, NJ on Sunday night, and videos of Eli Manning, Daniel Jones and others enjoying themselves have gone viral. 

As such, head coach Pat Shurmur is well aware of the situation, but he doesn't see a single thing wrong with it. In fact, Shurmur wanted an invite. 

"Yeah," he said when asked if he was OK with his team out last night, "They're grown men and they look after each other. They were celebrating a victory -- should've invited me."

It took until the end of a dismal and disappointing season, but Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley reminded everyone why the Giants' future is bright.

Both players looked as good as they ever have as they put on dazzling displays in the Giants' wild, 41-35 overtime win over the Washington Redskins. Jones, the rookie quarterback who missed the last two games with a sprained ankle, completed 28-of-42 passes for a career-high 352 yards and a career-best five touchdowns. And Barkley, in by far the finest game of his young career, rushed 22 times for 189 yards and caught four passes for 90 yards and scored twice, too.

For Jones, it was his third game of the season with at least four touchdown passes and fourth game with at least four touchdowns overall. And Barkley set his career best with 279 total yards.

Barring anything "crazy," Daniel Jones will start for the Giants on Sunday against the Redskins in Washington, D.C. when they play their penultimate game of the season, head coach Pat Shurmur said on Friday.

Jones has missed the last two games due to a high ankle sprain, but had been ramping up his activity at practice this week in preparation for his return.

The rookie said on Wednesday that he was progressing.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants had never really fired a general manager before Dec. 4, 2017, when Jerry Reese was told to clean out his office. The closest they came was in 1978, when Andy Robustelli left on his own, saving the Maras from pushing him out the door.

From 1979 through 2017, the Giants had three general managers with an average tenure of 13 seasons.

There's a reason for that kind of front office stability -- a very good reason. And no matter how frustrated John Mara and Steve Tisch may be with the last two miserable seasons, they shouldn't ignore that and change their philosophy with Dave Gettleman now.

Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones has missed the past two games with a high ankle sprain, but after practice on Wednesday, it looks like he might break that streak this week. 

Head coach Pat Shurmur said that Jones took "most" of the first-team snaps at practice, and added that he looked "fine." Jones added more to that update on himself, saying his ankle continues to progress in a positive direction.

"The ankle feels good. I'm progressing," Jones said. "Hopefully I'll continue to improve throughout the week."

Evan Engram has officially been placed on Injured Reserve, the team announced on Tuesday, ending a long "will he, won't he" stretch where it was unclear whether Engram would be able to suit up from week-to-week.

The third-year tight end finishes the 2019 season with just eight games played , a career-low for Engram, who played 15 games his rookie season and 11 last year.

Engram has been sidelined since Week 10 with a foot injury that did not heal fast enough for him to return to the field. With the Giants record at 2-12, rushing him back was seemingly not something of a concern for the team.

In his eight games on the field this season, Engram caught 44 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns.

Former Giants quarterback Phil Simms thinks Eli Manning is going to become exactly that in a few short weeks, a former quarterback. 

Manning had what perhaps will be his final rodeo with the Giants this past Sunday in the team's 36-20 win over the Dolphins.

The QB exited the field to an ovation from fans, but he still might need to play over the course of the final two weeks of the season. That remains to be seen.

Eli Manning walked off the field at MetLife Stadium victorious on Sunday, and the expectation is that it will be his final home start -- and potentially his last start as a Giant. But things are still somewhat up in the air.

"We'll just have to see," head coach Pat Shurmur said Monday when asked about the status of Daniel Jones, who has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury.

"We'll just push him along like we did last week," Shurmur added. "We started the week with the idea that he might be ready to play, and we'll do the same this week."

The Giants finally came away with a win on Sunday against the Dolphins -- their first victory since September -- which brought their season record to 3-11. It was good to see Big Blue snap its franchise-tying nine-game losing streak, and Eli Manning capturing a win in what could be his last home start of his Giants career. 

But that win also set the table for what could be a big change in the 2020 NFL Draft order this upcoming week. 

To understand what I mean, here's a look at how the top six picks shake out at the moment with each team's strength of schedule (which is the deciding factor when teams own the same record at the end of the season):

The Giants were happy to snap their nine-game losing streak with Sunday's 36-20 win over the Miami Dolphins, but Week 15 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, meant more than just the final result.

Eli Manning made his second straight start in place of injured rookie Daniel Jones, who continues to recover from his sprained left ankle, and the veteran quarterback made the most of the opportunity.

In what was likely Manning's final home game with the Giants, he completed 20 of 28 passes (71.4 percent) for 283 yards and two touchdowns to three interceptions and led New York (3-11) past the Dolphins (3-11) 36-20.

Eli Manning made the most of what was potentially his final home game playing for the Giants.

The 16th-year veteran, thrown back into the starting role for the second straight week as rookie Daniel Jones continues to recover from his sprained left ankle, helped snap New York's nine-game losing streak.

While he was by no means perfect, completing 20 of 28 passes (71.4 percent) for 283 yards and two touchdowns but throwing three interceptions, Manning did more than enough to fuel the Giants' emotional 36-20 win over the Miami Dolphins (3-11).

The Giants have taken a lot away from Eli Manning in recent years, from his consecutive games streak to most of his final season. Their mismanagement, it can be argued, even stole the late prime of his career.

At a time when he should've been hearing cheers, he was too often relentlessly booed. When he should've been trying to make one last Super Bowl run, he instead endured almost nothing but losing. He wasn't blameless, of course, but he was often saddled with a terrible surrounding cast and unfortunate circumstances.

It wasn't fair that one of the greatest careers ever by a Giant was headed towards such an unhappy ending.

With rookie quarterback Daniel Jones out with an ankle injury for the second straight week, Eli Manning got the start in what could be his final game for the Giants.

He led the Giants to their first win since Week 4, beating the Miami Dolphins 36-20.

Manning finished the day 20-for-28 passing with 283 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. He now has 366 career touchdown passes and a 117-117 record as a starter.

Eli Manning may have just played his final game at home for the Giants, as the team beat the Miami Dolphins 36-20.

Manning threw two touchdowns in the win, giving him a total of 366 touchdown passes in his career -- good for seventh all-time in NFL history.

With 1:50 left in the game, head coach Pat Shurmur did the right thing and replaced Manning with backup quarterback Alex Tanney -- allowing Manning to get a standing ovation from the crowd.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - If this really was the end for Eli Manning, at least it was a fitting finale.

And if this wasn't the end ... well, maybe it should be.

The Giants' icon got to go out a winner, and once again heard the cheers from the crowd, in what might easily was the best performance of his final season in New York. The 38-year-old quarterback completed 20 of his 28 passes for 283 yards and threw two touchdowns. Sure, he also threw three interceptions. But his performance was enough to snap the Giants' franchise-record-tying nine-game losing streak and to beat the Miami Dolphins 36-20.

The Dolphins will get some added help this Sunday when they try to defeat a New York team for the second time, as WRs DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson have been cleared from the concussion protocol and were removed from the game's injury status report.

Parker, who signed a four-year, $40 million contract extension earlier this week, suffered the injury during last week's loss to the Jets when he was tackled after catching a pass and hit his head on the field.

Wilson also suffered the injury last week against the Jets.

Eli Manning will start his second consecutive game this weekend for the Giants after Pat Shurmur announced that Daniel Jones remains out with a high ankle sprain.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported earlier this week that it was "likely" Manning would start against the Dolphins as Jones continues to recover from the injury.

With the rest of the season still in limbo, Manning will at the very least get to play one final home game for the Giants on Sunday to potentially cap off his 16-year career in New York.

With Eli Manning and Alex Tanney potentially leaving this offseason, the Giants will bring in former Georgia State and CFL quarterback Nate Arbuckle for a workout Tuesday.

The Giants seem set at quarterback for the long term with Daniel Jones under center, but they will still need a viable option at the backup position.

Arbuckle, 26, most recently played for the Calgary Stampede after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2016 -- Arbuckle spent some time at Pittsburgh Steeler rookie mini-camp before heading up to to the CFL.

Brett Favre came away from Eli Manning's performance Monday against the Eagles with the thought that the veteran quarterback still has more left in the tank.

Manning got benched by the Giants after two games for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, but returned to action in Week 14's 23-17 overtime loss to the Eagles, completing 15 of 30 passes (50.0 percent) for 203 yards and two touchdowns without an interception.

"I was pleased to see that," Favre said Tuesday on SiriusXM's NFL Radio, according to Tom Rock of Newsday. "I think a lot of Eli. I think his body of work speaks for itself. He's handled a lot of criticism over the years with class. He's won two Super Bowls there. Sure beat me in our championship game at our place and played outstanding really those last eight games of that season. Couldn't have played any better and capped it off with a wonderful Super Bowl win."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Daniel Jones may have returned to practice on Wednesday, but it still looks like Eli Manning will be the Giants starting quarterback on Sunday afternoon.

A team official said it is "likely" that the 38-year-old Manning will get the nod to make what could be the final home start of his iconic Giants career, this Sunday at the Meadowlands against the Miami Dolphins. Jones was "limited" at practice on Wednesday, as he attempts to recover from a high ankle sprain. And though he didn't appear to be bothered at all by his injury and said he felt fine, the source said the team will likely take a cautious approach.

And while there is definitely some sentiment in the organization to find a way to get Manning one more home start anyway -- especially since they know there are few other reasons for fans to actually show up -- it doesn't appear that will play a part in the decision. The source said it will be a medical decision and, inevitably, Pat Shurmur's call.

The Giants' quarterback situation this week holds a lot of uncertainties. Daniel Jones' availability is still up in the air, while Eli Manning takes first-team reps. And at the end of the day, head coach Pat Shurmur says it's his call. 

But, as of Wednesday, no party is giving any indication as to who will be under center.

"We'll have to see," Shurmur said.

Eli Manning couldn't come away with a win in his return under center for the Giants on Monday night despite a valiant first-half effort. But, with Daniel Jones still dealing with his high ankle sprain, Manning should get another shot at home on Sunday against the Dolphins, right? 

Head coach Pat Shurmur said not so fast on Tuesday. 

Jones' timetable is 2-4 weeks for his sprain, which would suggest Manning would at least get one last game before handing the starting quarterback duties back to the rookie. But Shurmur said "that's not accurate" while speaking with reporters.

PHILADELPHIA - The Giants are in denial. That's the only way to explain it. They see a glass half full when it's almost completely empty. They aren't just bad, they're historically bad, riding the longest losing streak in franchise history.

And yet …

A 2-2 start for the Giants has snowballed into a nine-game losing streak, and frustration is no stranger inside the Giants locker room.

On Monday night, it looked like the Giants may break out of their funk, up 17-3 at halftime, led by Eli Manning's two first-half touchdowns. 

But the team collapsed in the second half, surrender the lead before allowing the game-winning Zach Ertz touchdown in overtime to lose 23-17.

Giants fans had seen this game before countless times.

Eli Manning -- back under center for the first time since Week 2 -- with the ball in his hands, primed for a two-minute drill to give the Giants a win against a division rival. 

But after a three-and-out to keep the game tied, Big Blue and the Eagles went to overtime, where Manning never got another chance to find the magic. Philadelphia eventually came away with a 23-17 victory at Lincoln Financial Field after scoring on the opening drive of the extra frame.

Giants veteran QB Eli Manning will be off the sideline and back in a more familiar starting role against the Eagles on Monday Night Football. He's back due to Daniel Jones' high ankle sprain he suffered last week, and he'll once again be tasked with leading the Giants to victory. 

But this group hasn't felt that since Week 4 when they took down the Redskins at home in MetLife Stadium. And that was with Jones leading the way for his second straight win. 

With Manning under center now, those stakes to collect a win -- on the road no less -- are even higher. That's because it isn't just the eight-game losing streak this Giants team owns at the moment.

Any thought that the Giants might still start Daniel Jones in Monday's game against the Eagles got shot down at Saturday's practice.

Second-year head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that the rookie quarterback would be out for the Giants (2-10), who officially turn back to veteran Eli Manning in Week 14 at Philadelphia.

Ahead of the 8:15 p.m. kickoff at Lincoln Financial Field against the Eagles (5-7), Shurmur noted that Jones progressed and was eager to get back in time after shedding the protective walking boot Friday, but he ultimately remains sidelined.

The Giants were hopeful that Evan Engram would be ready to go against the Eagles on Monday night, but after the tight end did not practice on Saturday, he'll remain inactive for Week 14.

Engram has been sidelined with a sprained foot since Week 9, but head coach Pat Shurmur said on Wednesday that his prospects of playing were "trending up." On Friday, Engram was listed as a participant in practice (albeit in a limited capacity) for the first time.

But he did not participate in Saturday's walkthrough, after which the Giants announced that Engram would not play on Monday.

Tate suffered the concussion in Week 12's loss to the Chicago Bears, and missed Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.

In his first season with the Giants, Tate has 36 receptions for 450 yards and four touchdowns in seven games. He has seen at least six targets in each game this season, with a 63.2 percent catch percentage.

Daniel Jones was seen at Giants practice on Friday without a boot on his foot, showing progress regarding his sprained ankle, but the rookie quarterback did not practice and is unlikely to play against the Eagles on Monday night.

Veteran QB Eli Manning is expected get the start against Philadelphia in his place, as the Giants look to halt an eight-game skid.

With Jones' ankle already improving and him no longer in need of a protective boot, the idea of Jones returning to the field again this season is certainly trending upward.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Nine games into his rookie season, Sam Darnold looked absolutely lost. All the promise he previously showed was gone in a downward spiral. His head was spinning and his play was getting worse.

That's when fate stepped in and left the Jets' newest franchise quarterback with a sprained foot that would keep him sidelined for a month - an injury that turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones is "getting better" after suffering a high ankle sprain, according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Though, "the chances are very slim" that he'd be able to play on Monday night when the team travels to Philadelphia to play the Eagles.

Eli Manning will likely be the starting quarterback against the Eagles in Week 14.

Shurmur is "optimistic" that Jones will play again this season, as the team has four more games left.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Fast forward to the end of the 2019 season and make a big assumption: That Eli Manning plays well for at least a few games in December, and the Giants win a game or two, too.

That's what it would take to give the soon-to-be-39-year-old a shot at an NFL quarterbacking job next season. But if that happens, where would he even find an open job?

There are only a few possibilities with so many franchises set with young quarterbacks for their future, and none of them seem very likely. Manning could go anywhere as a clipboard-holding backup, of course, but that's not something someone who spent 15 years as a starter is likely to do. If he continues his career, he's going to want to play -- or at the very least he'll want a chance to play.

PHILADELPHIA - Eli Manning has built his career on storybook endings. But he couldn't do it one more time.

After 11 weeks of standing on the sidelines watching his successor in his old job, the 38-year-old Manning showed everyone on Monday night that there's still at least a little life left in his right arm - but just not nearly enough to give the Giants a much-needed victory. After a red-hot first half he cooled down considerably in the second.

That opened the door for the Eagles to rally from a 14-point halftime deficit and send the game into overtime. And when Carson Wentz hit Zach Ertz with a two-yard touchdown pass at the end of their first possession, the Eagles had a 23-17 win.

While the Giants do not release their latest injury report until Thursday, second-year head coach Pat Shurmur shared one optimistic update as they prepare for Monday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Shurmur said the Giants' chances of getting third-year tight end Evan Engram back were "trending up" with five days to go before Week 14 kicks off at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Engram added to Shurmur's update, telling Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com, "Yes, sir," when asked if he expected to make his return for the 8:15 p.m. start on ESPN.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Eli Manning has never once even hinted about his plans for 2020, and those close to him have sworn they either don't know his plans, or that the Giants quarterback really hasn't made up his mind. Everyone, though, seemed to think his NFL career was likely over.

Until now.

Now, of course, the Giants' long-time franchise quarterback is back for one last hurrah, thanks to the "moderate" high ankle sprain to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones that will likely force Manning to start again for the Giants in Philadelphia on Monday night.

The Giants revealed Wednesday that QB Daniel Jones suffered a high ankle sprain against the Packers on Sunday, and though Pat Shurmur won't say it definitively, Eli Manning should be getting the start against the Eagles on Monday night. 

So the veteran signal caller that spent 15 years leading the Giants offense will return after taking a back seat these past 10 games for Jones' rookie progression. It was in that moment leading up to Week 3 that many believed it was the official end of Manning's time with the Giants -- and that still might be what happens when the regular season is over at the end of the month. 

But Manning hasn't been viewing things that way, especially not now with a start -- and maybe more -- in his sights. It's time to get down to business.
