Eli On Peyton:  ‘Getting Out at the Right Time’


A text came to Eli Manning’s phone late last week and it revealed some information that he had been expecting. It was his older brother informing him of his decision to retire after 18 years in the NFL. “Just telling me that he was going to probably have a press conference on Monday announcing it. We had not talked about it kind of straight up,” Eli told the Giants’ team website. “I was with him over the weekend prior to that, and nothing came up. I didn’t ask him, but I kind of had a feeling it had been on his mind.”
