Big $5 million payday keeps Eli Manning, Giants bound together

This is the day that the marriage between Eli Manning and the New York Giants officially gets renewed. The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback earns his $5 million roster bonus Sunday just for being on the 90-man roster.

The bonus was guaranteed as long as Manning was on the roster Sunday,nfl jerseys cheap authentic the fifth day of the new league year, a source familiar with his contract said. The Giants’ starting quarterback would’ve had to be cleared off the roster by 4 p.m. ET Saturday not to earn the bonus. That did not happen, and was not expected to.

The $5 million will be paid out to Manning on Wednesday, according to the terms of his current contract.92

The Giants and their new regime committed to Manning immediately after new coach Pat Shurmur was hired. Shurmur said the 37-year-old quarterback has several good “years” remaining.

The veteran is looking to have a bounce-back season under Shurmur, who is known for his work with quarterbacks and worked magic with Nick Foles, Sam Bradford and Case Keenum in recent years. Keenum threw 22 touchdown passes and seven interceptions in a career year with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017.

The Giants’ renewed commitment to Manning began with the hiring of general manager Dave Gettleman before the end of the season. nike nfl jerseys cheap Gettleman has a previous relationship with the quarterback, and was impressed by his performance in a late-season game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

That helped convince the Giants that Manning still had something left in his arm and body.

Manning should benefit from the Giants’ focus this offseason on the offensive line. They spent $62 million on left tackle Nate Solder to protect his blind side. The Giants also signed guard Patrick Omameh from the Jacksonville Jaguars and tendered center Brett Jones in an effort to solidify their line for the upcoming season.

49ers still talking to Carlos Hyde, but running back options remain open


SANTA CLARA, Calif. — With the NFL’s free-agent negotiating window opening in less than a week, the San Francisco 49ers have stayed in contact with representatives for running back Carlos Hyde, according to general manager John Lynch.

Speaking at last week’s NFL combine, Lynch reiterated his previous stance that the Niners would be happy to welcome Hyde back for a fifth season and beyond. He also indicated he would have further meetings with Hyde’s agents in Indianapolis.

“We’ve had discussions with Carlos all the way through the season,” Lynch said. “We haven’t been able to come to an agreement, but those discussions are ongoing. This is a great opportunity. … We have an opportunity and we will talk to all of [our free agents] right down to the wire. I wouldn’t say anything is imminent there.”

This close to the start of free agency, it would be unusual for a team and a player to strike an agreement that has nothing to do with a one-year franchise or transition tag, neither of which is considered an option the Niners would pursue with Hyde. In the absence of a deal, all signs point to Hyde hitting the market and the 49ers exploring a talented class of running backs, which Lynch considers the deepest position in the upcoming NFL draft, as well as some intriguing possibilities in free agency.

In fact, the Niners did their due diligence on the top running back prospects at the scouting combine, hosting nearly all of them in 15-minute formal interviews. Lynch acknowledged discussions with Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, USC’s Ronald Jones and Oregon’s Royce Freeman, but said others also were brought in. LSU’s Derrius Guice, San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny and Georgia’s Sony Michel and Nick Chubb are other highly regarded prospects.

The 49ers hold the No. 9 overall pick, and only Barkley figures to be of that caliber, but after his electrifying combine performance, it’s all but certain Barkley will be long gone before the Niners are on the clock.

“The whole dynamic of that position,where to find cheap nfl jerseys in many people’s minds, losing value, but I think much like a quarterback, when there’s a great one, it’s tough to deal with,” Lynch said. “I know that from playing defense. So I think is that changing? I don’t know. I think everyone has their own perspective. But that is a position where you can affect a game in a great way.”

Even if Barkley did somehow land in San Francisco’s draft range, the question would become whether a Kyle Shanahan-coached team would invest such a precious pick in a running back? Shanahan and his father have built a reputation for finding mid- to late-round picks or undrafted free agents and turning them into productive backs, if not stars.

Given what Lynch said about the position plus Barkley’s performance at the combine and on the field, it would be hard to resist pairing him with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to give the Niners a dynamic duo in the backfield.

Still, with so many talented backs, the Niners could theoretically wait and find someone capable of becoming a top-level talent. Just last year, New Orleans’ Alvin Kamara and Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt were taken in the third round and went on to become the league’s most dynamic rookie backs and among the best in the league regardless of age.

Despite his track record, Shanahan said he’s not married to a philosophy of waiting on running backs.

“Everyone says you can get running backs later in the draft, which you can,” Shanahan said. “You can also get them early in the draft. I think if [Pittsburgh’s] Le’Veon Bell came out this year, I’m sure he’d be a top-five pick. I think he went in the second round.authentic nfl cheap jerseys I think [Arizona’s] David Johnson would be the same.

“People always want to find those top running backs. People have found a lot of running backs later in rounds, like what Kareem Hunt did this year. You always go back to Terrell Davis and those people. You don’t have to get them in the first round, more like you do a tackle or an elite pass-rusher. But still, if there’s a running back there that you think is going to be like some of those guys I mentioned, then that guy is worth the first pick in the draft just like anybody else would be.”

As for Hyde, he was healthy and productive last season but didn’t look like an ideal match for the Niners’ outside zone concepts and struggled in the passing game. That could open the door for San Francisco to look at free-agent options such as Dion Lewis, Jerick McKinnon and Isaiah Crowell.authentic nfl jersey wholesale

As it stands, the 49ers have four backs returning to the roster: Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert, Joe Williams and Jeremy McNichols. Of that group, only undrafted rookie Breida contributed, with 465 rushing yards on 4.4 yards per carry. Shanahan and the Niners remain hopeful that Williams can be the next mid-round pick to develop into a starting caliber back, but there’s not enough evidence to blindly believe that will happen.

“I really hope Joe can be like that,” Shanahan said. “I hope Breida can be like that. I hope Raheem Mostert can be like that. I think we’ve got a lot of guys with some talent on our roster that not many people know about. It’s not the talent that always brings it apart. A lot of these guys have talent and that’s why you find them. But it’s how they respond to the NFL and the pressures of it and running back is a different deal in the league. Those guys hit hard, and you’ve got to do it week in and week out and not just one game, and 16 games is tough to get through.”

Von Miller keeps pushing for Broncos to sign Kirk Cousins

With free agency three days away, the best defensive player in Denver keeps politicking for the team to sign one of the best available veteran quarterbacks. Von Miller wants Kirk Cousins to come to town.

“I’m all in 100 percent,” Miller told James Palmer of NFL Media. “This is a big time for cheap custom nfl jerseys Denver and a big time for the National Football League. You don’t really have, especially quarterbacks, become free like that. So it’s an exciting time in the National Football League.”

Cousins is the first healthy franchise quarterback under the age of 30 to become an unrestricted free agent. The class of free agents also includes several other potentially attractive options at the quarterback position.gettyimages-898096986-e1520785590123

“It’s kind of like college again,” Miller said. “You got an athlete coming to your school and you want to try your best to get them there. And that’s the same thing with us. cheap customized nfl jerseys We would really like to have Kirk. I think him and his personality and the things that he brings to the table fits in with Denver. But there are a lot of great teams out there with large pocket books. So we’ll have to just wait and see. But I’ll have to give him the ultimate spiel on why Denver is special to me.”

Miller realizes that, even his spiel and Denver’s money may not be enough. Which means that the Broncos will need to have one or more fallback plans in place.

“You always have your plan B and C,” Miller said. “We have great direction with the Denver Broncos — I said it 50 million times. [G.M. John] Elway is as good as it gets. cheap nfl custom jerseys Whatever [direction] he takes this organization in I’m with him. We’re tied to the hip forever. Whatever direction he takes the organization I’m with him 100 percent.”

Here’s an interesting direction that Miller may not like, but it would get Miller and Cousins on the same team. A reader recently suggested a trade between the Rams and Broncos, with Miller going to L.A., quarterback Jared Goff going to Denver, and the Rams then signing Cousins, reuniting him with coach Sean McVay. That would be a crazy outcome, but given the craziness of the last few days, how crazy would it really be?
