Eli Manning said earlier this week that he really wanted his contract extension with the New York Giants done before Sunday's game with the Dallas Cowboys. It looks like the 12-year veteran quarterback is going to get his wish.

A four-year, $84 million deal would put Manning smack in between the $87.4 million deal Ben Roethlisberger got from the Pittsburgh Steelers and the $83.25 million deal Philip Rivers got from the San Diego Chargers. In other words, right where everyone expected him to be end up all along.

If the contract is indeed worth $21 million annually that would make it the fourth-highest contract for quarterbacks in terms of annual value.

Manning is currently in the final year of a six-year, $97.5 million deal.
