Giants, Manning agree to 6 years, $97 million deal

From the Associated Press: Eli Manning has agreed to a new six-year, $97 million contract extension with the New York Giants that will make him the highest paid player in the NFL with an average salary of roughly $15.3 million. A person close to the talks who asked not to be identified because the deal was not signed says Manning is guaranteed $35 million under the deal which will keep him with the Giants through the 2015 season. My take: Not the $110 million or more we thought he might get, but I would take it.
