New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning could be in line for a contract extension this offseason despite having one of his worst year in the NFL.
Manning threw for just 18 touchdowns whilst being intercepted 27 times and sacked on 39 occasions. The former Ole Miss quarterback also had his worst completion percentage since 2004, the year he was drafted.
Despite Manning's poor performance, he could still find himself being offered a lucrative extension this summer.
According to the overthecap.com, the Giants have just $13.4 million left in cap space and with a number of improvements needed to make the team a contender, they will look to trim some of their more expensive contracts.
Manning had the highest cap number in the league last season at over $20 million but with just two years remaining on his six-year deal there is not much room for restructuring.It is therefore likely that the Giants will have to offer him a decent sized extension to shed some of his salary number.
New York do have several other highly paid players that they could restructure or cut but Manning's salary is still the number that sticks out.
As usual all eyes will definitely be on New York this offseason.
