Giants Giants quarterback Eli Manning will soon become the richest player in NFL history if he remains under contract with the franchise.
Manning, 38, will earn $ 17 million for the 2019 season, including a $ 5 million bonus if he is still on the Giants roster as of Saturday at 16:00 ET. If Manning returns as the team's starting quarterback, as widely expected, that $ 17 million spin would push his career earnings to over $ 252 million, according to Spotrac.
Manning would become the first NFL player in history to earn $ 250 million in career earnings. His brother, Peyton Manning, retired as the all-time NFL career leader with $ 248.7 million.
A two-time Super Bowl champion, Manning has raised widespread criticism in recent years after leading the Giants to lose records in five of the last six seasons. However, sources have told ESPN that the Giants are not expected to seek another option at the quarterback via a free agency, although they can select its eventual replacement in the NFL Draft in April.
"That's what we have at this point" a team source told ESPN.
