Has Eli Manning played his last down EVER for the New York Giants???
It certainly seems that way … because when we got the team’s co-owner, Steve Tisch, leaving Craig’s in L.A. on Tuesday, he wouldn’t commit to the 39-year-old QB for 2020.
“Everything’s up in the air,” Tisch said.
Of course, all signs have been pointing toward a Manning-Giants breakup ever since NY took Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in last year’s NFL draft.
But, there at least appeared to be SOME chance Manning could return as Big Blue’s backup next season … although Tisch’s responses to our questions didn’t exactly paint the brightest picture for that possibility.
If it is the end for Manning in NY … it was a hell of a run — he started 234 games for the Giants since 2004 and famously won two Super Bowls.
As for what Giants’ life could be like without the QB … Tisch tells us he’s optimistic about the direction Joe Judge has the team headed in, saying, “I totally trust our new head coach.”
