Giants QB Eli Manning was asked about the speculation that a trade to the Jaguars could make some sense for both parties. However, Manning made it clear that he wants to remain in New York.
“I’ve not heard [the Jacksonville speculation], I’ve not felt it, not thinking about it,” Manning told Newsday. “I don’t want to play anywhere else. I love this team, love this organization, and I want to be here.”
Manning added that he’s hoping to remain with one team for his entire career.
“That’s always the goal,” Manning said. “You always want to come to a place and make an impact, stay in one spot, and I think that’s always the mindset. I hope that will be the case.”
“Obviously, in this league, things can change, and if we have to make decisions, we’ll figure it out,” Manning admitted.
