Eli’s extension


Guess Eli Manning will be picking up the check a lot from now on, given that he’s agreed to terms on a six-year extension worth approximately $97 million. That makes him the richest player in the NFL, a mark that will probably be surpassed by someone on some other team (Tom Brady? Peyton Manning?) in the near future.

About $35 million of that is believed to be guaranteed. But the important thing here is that Manning will be locked down through 2015, which has to be a nice feeling for the folks in charge. Better to have a franchise quarterback in the house than, oh, what the Jets have — two unproven guys, one a rookie, battling it out for the starting job.
