“Shoot, yeah, I think so,” Tom Condon, Manning’s agent, said Monday at the site of this week’s Senior Bowl.
Condon, who rarely speaks on the record about his clients, added he believes Manning wants to return to the Giants, the only team he has ever played for in the NFL.
A huge potential issue surrounding a Manning return or parting of the ways could revolve around his acceptance of a salary reduction. The Giants have not said anything about cutting into Manning’s 2019 salary, which is on the books for $17 million, or the possibility of reducing his salary-cap number of $23.2 million for the coming season. Manning is entering the final year on his contract.
