Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is rejoining the organization in a business ops and fan engagement role, the team announced Monday.

Manning's responsibilities will include helping with business development, original content development, and fan engagement activations.

"For 16 seasons, Eli represented and defined what it meant to be a Giant, and we are excited for him to join the business side of our front office," Giants co-owner John Mara said.

Manning, 40, was the first overall pick in 2004. He helped the Giants win two Super Bowl titles while becoming the franchise's all-time passing leader. Manning retired after the 2019 season.

"Staying involved with this organization is very important to me," Manning said. "I love the organization, love the Giants and the fans, and so I want to do anything possible to help them out and be a part of it."

New York also announced Monday that Manning will enter the Giants' Ring of Honor. He'll have his No. 10 jersey retired Sept. 26 during the team's Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Manning's jersey retirement ceremony was initially scheduled for last season, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
