Entering the final season of his deal, the New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Monday he’s confident that he will eventually work out a longterm deal with the team.

“It’s not important to me. I gotta do a job. I’m working and making sure this team is going in the right direction and we win more games and we have success and we get back to making the playoffs and that’s important to me, that’s what I’m focused on,” Manning said.

“If there are discussions going on, I’m not in those discussions. I just don’t think there’s a whole lot of point worrying about it. I got things I have to do, get ready for practice every day and that’s what I’m focused on.”

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Manning wants to be the highest paid quarterback in the game, ahead of Aaron Rodgers.


We’ll see how this plays out for the Manning brother with the most Super Bowls.
