What a stat from @giantseisen today:

Eli Manning will be just the fourth player in the 93-year history of the franchise to play 15 seasons for the Giants.

Traina The Athletic: Davis Webb's trainer details what the second-year QB has been working on this offseason (Subscription)
https://theathletic.com/303797/2018/04/09/davis-webbs-trainer-details-what-the-second-year-qb-has-been-working-on-this-offseason/

Stuart Football Perspective: Eli Manning is basically done at this point in his career and teams will give up a franchise altering amount of draft capital to move to 2.
Giants are idiots if they stay at 2 and don’t draft a QB.
