Dave Gettleman is once again standing behind his veteran quarterback.
"On offense, you gotta have a QB run out there," Gettleman said, according to NFL Network's Kim Jones. " ... This narrative that Eli is overpaid and can't play is a crock. It really is."
Gettleman added that keeping Manning on the Giants' 2019 roster "really wasn't a hard decision to make," according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.
The 38-year-old passer was more effective toward the end of last season, as the GM's noted multiple times this winter, but struggled overall, averaging 7.5 yards per attempt while tossing 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
