Good morning New York Giants fans! Here are your headlines for this Tuesday morning!
Eli Manning contract updates
Rodgers got a five-year, $110 million deal from the Green Bay Packers, with the annual value of $22 million making him the highest-paidquarterback on an annual basis. The price of a franchise quarterback is not cheap as new deals given out to Phillip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Ryan Tannehill this offseason have shown that teams are willing to pay the price. There isn't much doubt that eventually the Giants will be able to sign Manning but it is curious to see how far the Giants will go during these negotiations. One thing for sure is that Manning will be a whole lot richer when this is all said and done.

Jay Bromley gives himself a "C" grade
Friday night against the cincinnati Bengals Jay Bromley showed off the potential that got the Giants to invest a third-round pick in him a year ago. In fact, he had the highest PFF rating out of any Giant. Bromley, however, thought his performance only merited an average grade.
"I'm a guy I'd rather shortchange myself than give myself too much credit," Bromley said after the game. "Under-promise, over-deliver kind of thing. So I'll say I did all right. "I think I tried to play the run to the best of my ability, which is much better than last year. And as far as the pass, I think I got into the backfield a couple times. One good hit, a couple decent pressures."

"I’m beyond the point where I’m annoyed," Mara told Mike Francesa, in an interview on the FAN. "I wish he’d handled it better but we’re beyond that. Do I wish he came here and had our doctors look at him? Yes."
