Eli Manning is ‘back’ as Giants profess Kyler Murray curiosity

The immediate future got more clear, while the long-term one got a little murky.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed The Post’s reporting that Eli Manning would return for a 15th season on Wednesday at the NFL’s scouting combine.

“He’s back,” Shurmur said in his first comments since his first season as Giants coach ended.

The question now becomes: Who will be joining Manning in the quarterbacks room? The long-term answer does not appear on the roster, and GM Dave Gettleman, who will speak later in the day, could consider taking a quarterback with the No. 6 pick.

Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins is considered the top quarterback in the draft, while Heisman winner Kyler Murray — after choosing football over baseball — comes with a lot of curiosity. The Giants have a history of drafting statuesque quarterbacks, and some believe they would dismiss Murray based on his 5-foot-9 stature.

Shurmur seems open to the possibility, though, and is looking forward to meeting Murray.

“Quarterbacks come in all shapes and sizes,” Shurmur said from Indianapolis.
