Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Eli Manning will do it his way as Giants future grows clearer

Paul Schwartz writes that “all signs” indicate Manning will retire at some point after the Super Bowl.

The grind is behind him. Eli Manning can now be a suburban New Jersey Gentleman Farmer, doting on his wife and four children, starting a new and more leisurely chapter of his life, at 39 years old. There is no compelling reason for him to don a helmet ever again, and all signs indicate he is headed for a quiet and deserved retirement.

Sources -- Bengals have no intention of trading No. 1 overall draft pick

The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to sit tight and select quarterback Joe Burrow No. 1 overall. If, as expected, the Washington Redskins choose defensive end Chase Young at No. 2, that means quarterback-needy teams will be calling Detroit Lions GM Bob Quinn and Giants GM Dave Gettleman to ask about the third and fourth picks.

The Giants are considered one of the teams most likely to trade down. That makes sense if the Lions do not make a move down the board with a quarterback-needy team. Still, Gettleman has never moved down in the seven drafts he has run in Carolina or New York, and a left tackle like Andrew Thomas of Georgia or versatile defender like Isaiah Simmons of Clemson might be too appealing to pass on.
