Giants appear to be locked on Eli Manning for now

The New York Giants are likely going to start Eli Manning come Week 1 of the regular season. That’s fine.

Manning, 38, is entering his 16th year with the team. He’s won two Super Bowls. His days are numbered, though, with rookie quarterback and first0round pick Daniel Jones waiting to take his job. That moment will come soon enough.

In reality, Jones becoming the starter at some point in the early portion of the season is likely. The Giants aren’t going to be very good — in fact, it’s likely they will be quite bad — and when a team is struggling, change comes. Jones replacing Manning is going to be the most obvious move for head coach Pat Shurmur. If it doesn’t come in September, expect that October sees the switch.

In short, the Giants have no…
