The hobbled quarterback arrived at the Timex Performance Center this morning, just like after every game. He was not wearing any sort of protective boot on his right foot and word is he hasn't yet had any definitive tests on what the team is calling a bruised heel. It's likely this injury will be considered a day-to-day deal, unless tests reveal any real damage.
According to Pat Hanlon, Eli Manning, Antonio Pierce, and Jeff Feagles were voted Captains by their teammates today.
Q: What makes Eli the guy you want?
A: He’s a franchise quarterback. He’s done everything we ask him to do. He’s come in, he takes a lot of flack from you guys and he just keeps going. He does what we ask him to do on the field. He does what we ask him to do off the field. He’s a good football player.
According to published reports, Eli Manning is about to become the highest paid player in the NFL.
NFL sources then said the quarterback would probably end up with a deal worth $110-120 million with more than $40 million in guarantees. That could still be the case, though one source said the final total could be lower.
