1authorvince2 - The Morning Huddle: Manning Contract Details, Cruz and Beason Out Week OneEverything is now completely finalized. Eli Manning will be the New York Giants’ quarterback for the next five seasons.

Both sides agreed on an extension where Manning will be paid $84 million, $65 million of which will be guaranteed, including a no-trade clause.

Tying Philip Rivers for the most guaranteed money in the NFL.

This is what Manning had to say, according to ESPN:

“I’m obviously excited knowing I’ll be a Giant for a long time. This is where I got started and where I want to finish. I still have the same mentality. My goal is to earn this contract and do my best and keep trying to win championships for the Giants.”

No more rumors, no more speculation, Manning will continue to be a Giant for years to come.

It’s a done deal.

Both linebacker Jon Beason and wide receiver Victor Cruz have been ruled out for the team’s week one matchup vs the Dallas Cowboys.

As much as you might want to see Cruz back on the field, Beason is clearly the more important asset. He’s the leader of a defensive unit that clearly needs one at the moment.

Beason is the signal caller in the middle of the defense, and without him the team will now go with 27-year-old Uani’ Unga – who’s never appeared in a regular season game – as the starter.

We could also see recent acquisition, Jasper Brinkley get some playing time along with Mark Herzlich at the position.

Against an offense like Dallas, this could be a recipe for disaster.

Just warning you.
