NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Eli Manning



  • Mike Kaye writes that veteran S Glover Quin, who was released by the Lions on Friday, makes “a lot of the sense” for the Eagles as a No. 3 safety.
  • Kaye expects the Eagles to work something out with WR Nelson Agholor this offseason to ensure he’s back in Philadelphia. 
  • If the Eagles end up moving on from Agholor, Kaye says that Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries could make sense for them. 
  • Kaye lists Memphis’ Darrell Henderson and Georgia’s Elijah Holyfield as two possible running back fits for the Eagles in this year’s draft class. 

Eli Manning

  • Jordan Raanan of ESPN writes that “all indications” are that the Giants are prepared to bring back QB Eli Manning as their starting quarterback for the 2019 season. 
  • Sources close to Manning have told Raanan that the quarterback has received no indication his time with the Giants is about to end.
  • Raanan says that the belief in league circles is that the Giants saw enough from Manning in the second half of this past season to bring him back for another year. 
  • Even so, Raanan mentions that there are “strong indications” that the Giants appear to be intent on finding their franchise quarterback in the draft this year or next. 
  • A final decision regarding Manning’s status with the team should come before March 17 when he’ll receive a $5 million bonus if he’s on their roster.

Of course Elisha Manning is coming back for 2019 and possibly beyond. The GMEN are in the midst of a major rebuild. And the GMEN Brass are going to roll out their franchise QB once again. A franchise QB that has been done 5 years ago, in my opinion it’s longer then that time frame. Remember! Two very short years ago when GM Jerry Reese and then HC Ben McAdope planned on sitting Elisha Manning, which they did for Geno Smith. And Owner John Mara pleaded, “I had no idea that this situation was going to happen.” YEAH OKAY! Like… Read more »
