Sam Darnold: Would be unbelievable to be mentored by Eli

Sam Darnold: Would be unbelievable to be mentored by Eli

He's 37 years old, and the Giants, who have the No. 2 overall selection in the National Football League draft, are expecting to strongly consider taking a passer with the pick.

Manning had a previous working relationship with Dave Gettleman, who for 15 years was a Giants personnel executive, and noticed right away what the team's new general manager stressed upon taking the job.

Manning was in the opposite position in 2004 when he was a top pick and he replaced veteran Kurt Warner as the Giants' starter midway through his rookie season.

"It would be awesome to play for them as well", Darnold said of the Jets. "I'd be grateful for any organization that would give me a chance to lead them to Ws".

The Giants have assured Eli Manning he will continue as the Giants' starting quarterback this season. "Nothing changes. It's about doing your job but also helping the other guys around you and having great communication in the quarterback room".

The departed general manager, Jerry Reese, did not do a good job protecting Manning with a quality offensive line, a failing that more than anything else contributed to the 3-13 record in 2017 and an all-encompassing offensive malaise. "It's about me doing my job and that's playing quarterback". "I've got to go out there and compete and win games".

Manning, who has two years remaining on his contract, doesn't see an end in sight for his career. "I was at the Manning Passing Academy, it was a great opportunity for me to get better, and I learned a lot from Eli", Darnold said.

NY staggered to a 3-13 record as Manning threw for 3,468 yards - his lowest total since 2008 - with 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. "I don't have any indication that it's going to slow down or just all of the sudden have a big drop off".
