Eli Manning wants to remain the Giants' starting quarterback, but he wasn't ready Monday to get into how much a return is worth to him. The veteran sidestepped a direct question about the possibility of accepting a pay cut or reworking his contract in order to ensure there's a place for him on the roster and in the Giants' plans for 2018. "You know, again, we've got to figure out all those things," he said as the Giants cleared out their lockers. "A lot of conversations have to be had with management before we get into all those things." New general manager Dave Gettleman addressed the team during its final meeting before breaking for the offseason, but he and Manning will have a separate conversation at some point. That meeting has not yet been scheduled, Manning said. Manning, who turns 37 on Wednesday, has two years remaining on his contract. He is scheduled to make $10.5 million in base salary in 2018, plus a $5 million roster bonus and $500,000 workout bonus. His cap hit is scheduled to be $22.2 million, which is currently set to be the ninth-largest in the NFL next season, according to Spotrac, and the seventh-highest among quarterbacks.
