The New York Giants have several bad contracts on the books dating back to the days of general manager Jerry Reese, but they’ve been actively working to clean up their cap situation.

They took one major step in that direction earlier this week, shipping linebacker Olivier Vernon and his massive contract off to the Cleveland Browns, clearing more than $11 million in cap space.

But there are still some troublesome contracts on the books, which Bleacher Report took note of. They recently broke down the most overpaid players on every team and for Big Blue, quarterback Eli Manning got the nod.

We originally had pass-rusher Olivier Vernon in this spot, but then the New York Giants smartly dumped the majority of the 28-year-old’s $19.5 million cap hit by way of a Friday trade with the Cleveland Browns.

But Vernon was only a hair ahead of quarterback Eli Manning in the first place, because the post-prime 38-year-old is eating up far too much cap space with a $23.2 million cap hit for his 2019 walk year.

Manning has made just one Pro Bowl since putting together a strong 2012 season. He hasn’t led the Giants to a single playoff win during that stretch, and he’s thrown at least 10 more interceptions than any other quarterback in the league over the same span.

He’s quite simply been one of the worst signal-callers in pro football for more than half a decade running, but only a dozen of his positional counterparts are paid more handsomely.

Calling Manning one of the “worst signal-callers in pro football” is more than a bit of a stretch — it’s downright false and hilarious — but there’s no denying his contract is massive. Of course, that stems from several restructures in years past that allowed the team to free up cap space, so this is the culmination of kicking that can down the road for so many years.
