Two-time Super Bowl Champion quarterback Eli Manning and the New York Giants look to get a long-term deal done before the 2015 NFL season.

With the beginning of NFL Training Camps just around the corner, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese and two-time Super Bowl Champion quarterback Eli Manning are reportedly looking to take care of business now.
Dan Graziano of ESPN is reporting that both sides are currently locked in deep negotiations that’ll keep the younger Manning in New York for essentially the rest of his career.

One source told Graziano that the deal will likely get done “at some point” and that if both parties don’t agree on an extension that everybody involved feels comfortable enough in getting it done next offseason.
However, Manning’s agent Tom Condon and the Giants organization are working out a template that is very familiar with Ben Roethlisberger’s four-year, $87.4 million front-loaded deal.
Look for both sides to get this done as soon as possible. Signing the 34-year old Manning now (prior to this specific season) is the top choice for both parties. Manning will just be one year older next season and another quarterback could create a new template the Giants might not want to have shoved in their face.
