Here’s what the New York Giants could reportedly get if they decided to trade Eli Manning this offseason.
According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, the Giants would “at most” receive a late-round draft pick if they traded quarterback Eli Manning this offseason.
Manning’s $23.2 million cap hit next season puts a huge damper on his trade value.
Not to mention his physical limitations and inability to put the team on his back and win games.
Which is a desired trait among quarterbacks.
A trait that separates the good ones from the mediocre ones.
The more likely scenario for the Giants is either for him to retire or for the team to release him.
The Giants would save $17 million by cutting him.
Head coach Pat Shurmur surprised everyone this week when he announced that Manning could be benched for backup Alex Tanney instead of rookie Kyle Lauletta.
Geno Smith 2.0, anyone?
