Despite uncertainty surrounding his future in New York, Eli Manning can turn to one person who seems to have things figured out.
According to his agent, the veteran quarterback is expected to be back with the Giants for his 16th NFL season in 2019.
“Shoot, yeah, I think so,” Tom Condon said Monday, via the New York Post.
Condon added that he believes Manning is eager to return to the team that selected him with the first overall pick of the 2004 draft.
“I think he’d love to come back,” Condon said. “Guys love to play their whole careers with one team, if they have a good experience with that team.”
Still, nothing is set in stone as Condon confirmed he has yet to speak to the Giants about Manning.
“It’s just too early,” Condon said.
Manning, who turned 38 earlier this month, said he still loves playing football and feels physically capable, but admitted the last few seasons of losing have “taken a toll” on him and his family.
