The New York Giants and Eli Manning will likely enter the 2015 season without a new contract in place. The quarterback is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the conclusion of the season. Despite the lack of attention to Manning's contract, he is not worried about his future with the team.
“I started here," Manning told Boomer and Carton on WFAN. "When you get drafted and you come to an organization, you want to finish there. I’m going into my 12th year. I don’t want to change teams, I don’t want to change organizations, I don’t want to change cities. I’m happy where I am. I want to stay here. And hopefully it works out that way.”
Manning is focused on bigger things, like getting back to the promised land with a chance to compete for his third Super Bowl ring.

“I guess I just feel blessed that I’ve got a job,” Eli said. “I’m playing football. I’ve never gotten concerned or worried about contract stuff. I let my agent handle that, let the Giants handle that. My focus is totally on going out there and getting back to winning games, and making the playoffs and playing good football.
After completeing just 57.5 percent of his passes with an 18:27 touchdown to interception ratio in 2013, Manning bounced back by completing a career high 63.1 percent of his passes on route to a 30:14 touchdown to interception ratio.
