Eli Manning is about to be a lot richer.
The New York Giants quarterback reportedly is on the verge of a monster contract extension that would put him among the league’s highest-paid QBs, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.
Pro Football Talk added insight on the hold-up.
If true, Manning’s contract would make him the fourth-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL in terms of average annual value at exactly $21 million, meaning he’d make more than both his older brother Peyton ($17M) and Patriots QB Tom Brady ($9M).
The three in front of him? Aaron Rodgers ($22M), Russell Wilson ($21.9M) and Ben Roethlisberger ($21.85M). That’s impressive company.
No pressure, Eli.
