Like Rivers' situation, Manning's contract negotiations don't appear close to a resolution.
"My basic feeling is he's our quarterback and I would like him to be our quarterback for as long as he can do it physically," coach Tom Coughlin said on *NFL Total Access *on Monday. "Whatever it takes to cause him to be confident of his future -- that's what I want done."
Giants owner Steve Tisch told NFL Media's Judy Battista he wants Manning to play his entire career as a Giant and hopes to get an extension done.
Manning's camp is likely looking for a deal that would trump Roethlisberger's five-year, $99 million pact, but the team currently isn't geeked to ink that kind of deal before the 2015 season.
With one year left on Manning's contract and the ability to wield the franchise tag in 2016, the Giants have no reason to get a deal done quickly.
Manning is coming off one of his best statistical seasons of his career. He compiled a career-high 63.1 completion percentage to go with 4,410 yards and 30 touchdowns -- both second-highest career totals. With Odell Beckham Jr. becoming an all-world force, Manning could be in for another stat-busting season during his second year in Ben McAdoo's offense.
