Manning makes appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Wednesday morning on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he feels "re-energized" by having to learn the new offense being implemented by first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.

"It's definitely challenging. Each night I'm staying up and preparing. I feel like I'm in season right now with the amount of preparation I'm trying to put in," Manning said. "Each practice is draining on you mentally, you're thinking so much about everything that has to go on.

"It is also exciting. ... You like to be challenged. It is tough, it's not easy. But it has definitely re-energized me and brought an urgency to this time of year."

Manning has talked often about how he wanted to be back from offseason ankle surgery in time for OTAs, and reiterated that Wednesday:

"This has been huge, just getting in the offense," Manning said. "I knew I'd be fine for the upcoming season, but I really wanted to be there for OTAs. That was my goal all along.

"It's been huge to be out there and have this learning experience."

The Giants finish OTAs Thursday and Friday. The team's mandatory mini-camp is June 17-19. The full Manning interview is below.
