New York Giants veteran quarterback Eli Manning is stoked about new page in his Giants career after a tough season that saw his benching and the firing of head coach Ben McAdoo.
However, Manning expressed his desire to remain with the team and is excited to work with McAdoo’s replacement, Pat Shurmur.
“[I’m] just excited to see how he calls games, how he looks at defenses, how he wants to pick them apart and just seeing his insight to that and learn from it,” Manning said, according to John Healy of the New York Daily News.
“So we can see things the same way, have great communication and figure out how to score some points.”
Manning knows Shurmur’s son, Kyle, who attended the Manning Passing Academy.
“We spoke with him a little bit there,” Manning said. “So I know a little bit about him. I know a little bit about his past when he was in Philadelphia and obviously the Browns and obviously this season with the Vikings and what he was able to do as offensive coordinator. So I’m excited about that and excited to get back to work with him and see how we can improve this team.”
There won’t be any efforts to push Manning out the door like there were last season under McAdoo as Shurmur sees a long future with Manning at the helm for the Giants.
Giants Not Activating Jonathan Stewart
The New York Giants decided not to activate veteran running back Jonathan Stewart prior to the deadline to do so on Thursday.
Stewart, who landed on the IR due to a foot injury back in September, will now be unavailable for the rest of the season, per league rules regarding the injured reserve list.
While Stewart, 32, was brought in via a two-year deal, it is unlikely that the Giants bring him back in 2019.
Giants Placing Landon Collins on IR
The Giants are leaving the door open for Collins to return this season, but with the Giants struggling and Collins scheduled to hit free agency in March, it doesn’t seem to make much sense for Collins to rush his way back to the field in 2018.
Collins has collected 67 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble for the Giants this season.
Giants to Activate RJ McIntosh
The New York Giants have activated defensive end R.J. McIntosh from the non-football injury list and he will provide some much needed depth along the Giants defensive line, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
McIntosh first landed on the non-football injury list back in September when New York was hoping to be in contention for a NFC playoff spot, but with the team tanking and recently trading a number of players, McIntosh will likely get some playing time so he can show the team what he is capable of.
